 How do you contextualize current events with historical markers?  Two Years Later is an example of how students can use spoken word, rap and music to create/devise "essays" on historical events through a contemporary lens. Ntozake Shange coined the term "choreopoem" in 1975 to describe a dramatic presentation that includes movement, poetry and music. Students read and analyzed original sources, historical texts and news and media before writing, revising, rehearsing and performing.
