Join Media Rhythm Institute in the Teen Center at the Central library for iRhyme!

iRhyme is a reading literacy program that uses HipHop to encourage entrepreneurship, & interest in STEM. Beyond creating songs and CD's, iRhyme guides students through articles focused on social issues & community-driven solutions. Students are given the opportunity to digest, respond to & accept or reject what they read. After writing their own lyrics in response to the assigned reading, they learn how to produce songs (recording, editing, and more).

Students will:

  • Engage 3-4 texts per program & create 3-4 songs based on the text that they engage

  • Receive reading tips & tricks for comprehension & demonstration of comprehension

  • Have at least one performance during the program finale

  • Be given CD's to practice marketing, advertising  & selling their finished product
