Rap Battles are the prefect assessors and activities! This is an assessment tool. You need to have TAUGHT it!
I typically use my Rap Battles after the subject has been taught for a project or assessment. Students create their own dialogue back and fourth making a spiffy argument in their language.
Jefferson and J. Adams are on both, but there are three different ones. 1 includes Paine, 2 Franklin, and 3 Mercy Otis Warren.
YOU MUST TEACH FIRST, AND USE THIS AS AN ASSESSMENT.
