This is a local group of lads calling themselves Geelong Cypher. My Year 11 VCAL student Caleb Toohill is part of the group and his part starts at 2.20. He's good!
Based on this, I'm going to give him an Oracy for Self Expression outcome in his Literacy program, and a Writing for Self Expression outcome as well if he goes ahead and puts his verses down on paper.
I'm also looking at embedding a new unit in our Intermediate Literacy online page, so the rest of the cohort can use this as an optional unit with a variety of VCAL outcomes (reading and writing for self expression, reading/writing/oracy for public debate, etc.). For Caleb, this unit can extend in all sorts of directions (for example, if he reads and writes about what he knows when it comes to rap/hiphop, how to build lyrics, etc).
