"A rap or book rap is an exciting teaching and learning adventure. A blog is used to host weekly discussion points in response to a text (books, films, websites), topic or event, stimulate classroom activities, and provide opportunities for teachers and students to share responses and ideas with other schools.

Each rap features support material you can integrate into a teaching unit. This support material addresses relevant syllabus outcomes and includes collaboratively planned lesson ideas including teaching strategies, proformas for use by students, and other resources, such as special guests available online, resources for use with IWBs, and WebQuests."
