What In The Actual Hell Is This? Is It Common Core Aligned?

What in the actual Hell is this?

 

The original song is by Silento. Here’s the video.

Go read the original lyrics, which include:

What the hellDo the stanky leg (stank)
Do the stanky leg (stank stank)
Do the stanky leg (stank)
Do the stanky leg (stank stank)

Now break your legs (break ’em, break ’em)
Break your legs (break ’em dog)
Tell ’em “break your legs” (break ’em, break ’em)
Break your legs (break ’em dog)
Tell ’em “break your legs” (break ’em, break ’em)
Break your legs (break ’em dog)
Tell ’em “break your legs” (break ’em, break ’em)
Break your legs (break ’em dog)

 

Stanky, broken legs, indeed.

While it’s nice to see kids get excited about learning, I have to cringe a little imagining the chaos of a school spelling bee employing this method.

Remember, Teaching Tolerance is the ‘education’ arm of Southern Poverty Law Center.

Teaching Tolerance claims all their materials are ‘common core aligned‘. Was this one of their suggested assignments? If so, what standard is this representing? Stanky or Broken leg ELA?

    I might be impressed if 2 things were different:
    1. The original song were something we wouldn’t mind kids hearing the words to, and
    2. The song actually TAUGHT SOMETHING. It was more of a pep rally, which is OK, but …
    I taught kids chants in middle school to,remember things and let them dance around, get energy out, and help the ADDs wake up more, but the content of the chants was what I wanted them to learn: “We don’t want to work no more. I can now spell forty-four. Forty doesn’t have a U. Four and fourteen, they both do.” The content was chanted and learned. I don’t see that the kids in the video we’re learning anything.

    This might be a good idea for recess but not for teaching. Listen to the words people. That’s right can you understand what they are saying. This teacher should be teaching these children how to speak proper English not pumped up slang. And we wonder why so many of these kids won’t be able to get or hold a job in the future. Again, nice for a fun exercise but not for learning or teaching.
