Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Invites Educators to Attend Winter Rock Hall EDU Showcase
Event participants will learn how the Rock Hall builds stories around Inductees and includes presentations from teachers who attended the Summer Teacher Summit
Following a highly successful Virtual Teacher Summit which took place over the summer, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s award-winning education department is proud to announce plans for the Winter Rock Hall EDU Showcase.
Learn how the Rock Hall builds the stories around Inductees from the artifacts we display, to the songs we share in playlists, and to the activities they inspire on our digital education platform, Rock Hall EDU powered by PNC. Plus, see presentations from teachers who attended the Museum’s 2021 Summer Teacher Summit sharing how they use Rock Hall EDU in their own classrooms.
This event is made possible thanks to the generous support of the American Electric Power Foundation. AEP has been a leader and supporter of Rock Hall EDU since its inception, and the foundation has played an instrumental role in helping this free, digital education platform reach over 1 million students worldwide.
Teachers, parents, and guardians can create a free account at Rock Hall EDU (rockhall.com/education). The site contains professionally developed lesson plans, activities and activity sheets, presentations, videos, playlists, writing prompts, and more to engage students in the power of rock & roll as they learn about history, language arts, science, math and, of course, music. All materials meet national and state learning standards.
