Windsor Alum Nate Jarvis visits 8th grade English

English students from Chris Lord's middle school English class are learning about Urban Life in America through the Wheatley English Language Arts Curriculum. Students have been exploring been rap as a form of contemporary poetry and one reflection of urban culture. 

Nate Jarvis, a Windsor graduate and professional rapper, came in to talk to the class about how he writes his lyrics, creates rhymes and designs his beats. He performed one of his songs and then worked with small groups of students who are composing and preparing to present their own raps.
