HIP HOP MEETS SELF IMPROVEMENT Let's face it, times have changed. What most students want today is a good life after graduation...not a report card. As a society, whether we like it or not, rappers, athletes and other celebrities are more important to many of our young people than who the President of the United States is. That's why this self paced test preparation guide does not approach test taking by talking about getting an A, B or C on the next test. Instead we encourage students to find their own motivation for studying because in the long run...that will be the only thing that really matters. Maybe it's a job that allows them to arrange the travel schedule for Rihanna. Maybe it's interviewing Jay Z for their own magazine. Or maybe it's working behind the scenes for Tyler Perry or riding scooters from one work area to another as many Google employees do. Or maybe the student would like to create the next Dora the Explorer character. Or would like a job working in community relations for their favorite sports team. Our focus is encouraging students to find something that gives them "juice." We believe that's how most students will find their motivation for studying & doing homework. Designed for quick reading, an inspirational & culturally relevant paperback.
