Black History Month Teachers Rock

Wednesday, February 9: 4:30 p.m. -

Alternate Takes: K-12 Approaches to African-American Music on Film

Join us for a special Black History Month Teachers Rock exploring the legacy of African-American music and musicians on film.  Participating educators will discuss key films (to be screened in their entirety throughout the month) as well as Rock Hall educational models and content approaches.  With subjects and performances ranging from the birth of the blues to the dawn of hip-hop, these films reveal a story often neglected or even ignored.  Learn how you can bring this meaningful history into your own classroom.

This event is free, but space is limited.  Email or call 216.515.8426 to RSVP.

Professional Development Workshops for K-12 Educators


Teachers Rock is a professional development workshop series for K-12 level teachers and school administrators interested in integrating popular music into core-curriculum teaching.  This quarterly series is offered free of charge and is held on-site at the Rock Hall. 


Each Teachers Rock session will spotlight a specific grade band or content area by exploring great moments in rock and roll history and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees who made those moments happen.  Educators will learn how to use appropriate arts-integrated activities and instructional methods and will receive featured lessons and resources for use in their own classrooms.  Participants are encouraged to share and workshop their own lessons and strategies with colleagues in our open discussion forum.  Documentation of participation is available at the close of each session.
