Across subject areas, Flocabulary provides video-based learning activities to support students’ understanding and retention of academic vocabulary in a content area. Videos present vocabulary and information using a memorable hip-hop song followed by activities designed to reinforce and extend students’ understanding of terms. Videos contain links to the relevant Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and state standards, including the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).
Each video is accompanied by a set of instructional resources that include a “Quick Review” check for understanding, fill-in-the-blank copies of lyrics, printable worksheets, graphic organizers, and a quiz. Quizzes may be taken online or printed for paper and pencil administration. Online quizzes are graded automatically. Videos also have a set of “lyric notes” that include hyperlinks to textboxes that provide definitions and more information about the topic (e.g., “Sub-Saharan Africa is a region of Africa located south of the Saharan Desert.”).
Flocabulary is a web-based learning program for all grades and subjects that uses educational hip-hop music to engage students and increase achievement. Teachers in more than 50,000 schools have used Flocabulary’s standards-based videos, instructional activities and formative assessments to develop core literacy skills and supplement instruction across the curriculum.
