Limited Capacity seats available

The Rock and Roll Forever Foundation has produced a series of interdisciplinary lesson plans that “contextualize” select songs drawn from the Little Kids Rock songbook. These sample plans enable music teachers to situate songs such as “Hound Dog” or “Chain of Fools”--historically, geographically and socially.  

Taking the RRFF approach, music educators can enrich their students’ performance experiences. The songs come to life in new ways. As the students play, histories reverberate. More importantly, by contextualizing music, the songs can become the “interdisciplinary” object of study that connects a student’s life across classrooms. By its nature, music is tied to social studies, to language arts, to media studies and more. Approached in this way, music can be studied . . . as it is lived.

This breakout session will offer participants a glimpse into the RRFF/LKR collaboration and demonstrate methods with which any teacher can develop a holistic approach to music instruction.
