Engaging Students Thru Music
STEM to STEAM. The difference is the "A" for Arts. Rock & Roll Hall of Famer STEVEN Van ZANDT created TeachRock, as part of his Rock and Roll Forever Foundation.
With music classes being cut at school, TeachRock provides teachers with a free curriculum that uses the history of popular music and culture to help engage students in subjects like geography, science and social studies. Topics include:
► Songs that Defined History ► 100 Years of Dance ► Dylan as a Poet ► Blues, Poetry and the Harlem Renaissance ► Feeling the Vibrations (How the Grateful Dead made their concerts more accessible to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community)
We recently attended a TeachRock workshop at the Beacon Theatre in NYC. Little Steven spoke about his STEAM vision and followed it up with a Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul concert!
An inspirational artist making the world better through music!
