Rock History Course for Teachers

“Hold on to 16 as long as you can…changes come around real soon make us women and men.” – John Cougar Melloncamp

Hey teachers, are you looking for a great way to incorporate music into your curriculum?  Do you want to explore a different way to motivate and connect with your students? Maybe you have very little experience with music and just need a fun way to get those pesky professional development hours?  Well look no further! Our new course, “Rock History” will rock your socks off!

This new course celebrates the legacy of rock music and gives teachers a glimpse of some of the greatest artists of all time.  You will listen to sound clips that take you on rock’s epic journey from early influences to modern day. Experience how rock captured the essence of our country’s political and cultural changes throughout the past 200 years.  Have a blast rockin’ out to some great “oldies” tunes that shaped the music and messages we listen to today.

The projects in all of The Teacher’s Academy courses are designed for you to use in the classroom right away.  Rock History is no different! Have fun stumping your students with some of the facts you’ll learn by completing the Assessment Questions.   Analyze lyrics to a favorite rock song or one you just discovered in the course and then share this experience with your students!  Finally, you’ll use the integration ideas to build your own custom “rock and roll” lesson plan to use in class.
