A song about parts and organelles of the cell, based on Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind" Lyrics written by, song performed by, and Powerpoint slide show done by a simple high school science teacher named Mr. Hsu. This song and video have been made solely for educational purposes. Its level of depth and detail into the process of cellular respiration are aimed at High School College-Prep Biology students (at least the ones I teach). If you find any errors or omissions (i.e. I didn't mention tonoplasts), this is due to the fact that I didn't make this song specifically for AP Biology, Honors Biology, or College-Level Biology (although those students certainly enjoy it). Instead, I'm trying to make a song to appeal to students who aren't normally very interested in science (or at the very least they are not interested in memorizing a bunch of complicated words to something so small they'd never see it in their everyday lives), AND I'm being constrained by describing the many structures of a cell through a fairly recent and repetitive rap song... I actually performed this song for my students in class the day before our cell parts test. If you're lucky, you might find a video of such a live performance somewhere in the vast internet (quite a few of them were recording me singing it in class, after all). This video is a result of me taking a simple digital camera and aiming it at my computer to try and record the performance my students experienced (so sorry for the crude recording and poor quality). mp3 available: *******c3po.barnesos****/~wakkonat/shhs/cellularstateofmind.mp3 Lyrics: (youtube won't let me paste it into the description box, because it is too long...it's in the video...)
