A history teacher down in Georgia has the perfect way to get his students to learn – through music. And Migos’ smash hit “Bad and Boujee” was as the top of his list!
During a lesson that has now gone viral, David Yancey remixed the lyrics to teach the kids about the Civil War! Instead of “bad and boujee”, David rhymed, “My troops are mad and losing," on the hook as his class hyped him up in the background. The revamped track references General Grant and the Emancipation Proclamation as he goes on to give the students a history lesson they won’t soon forget.
Watch David rap below!
BARSSSSS! People praised David for his creative lesson online:
This isn’t the first time David has revamped a popular song to teach his students. Just last month, the teacher made a song about Native Cherokees to Adele’s hit song, “Hello!”
David definitely has a unique way of trying to get through to his students, and it’s working. In fact, for his artistic style of teaching, he even won the 2016 Teacher of the Year award at his school in Conyers, GA.
"Too often, teachers just tell students to learn things because we say so, but instead we need to meet them where they are,” he told Complex. “I ask the students the song that the kids are into and I adjust the content to match."
Aye! We wouldn’t mind sitting in on this class one time!
