Last month, second grade teacher Michael Bonner appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show when his hip hop record “Who, What, When, Where, How, Song” took off online. The hip hop pedagogy song inspired Ellen to help the students and interview Bonner, which would allowed for the South Greenville Elementary School Teacher to return to Ellen’s show again on February 17th and show new material.
With the help of some hip hop heavyweights, Bonner’s students song entitled, “Read It,” now has Big Sean, Migos, Ty Dolla $ign, Lin-Manuel Miranda adding bars about reading and education. Degeneres provided the resources for the students to record a video for the track and donated $25,000 to South Greenville Elementary School.
