Through a collaborative effort between the library and the music department, our music students took an educational field trip to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum today. The students learned quite a bit about music and technology through their one hour interactive class and had the opportunity to engage in a question and answer period as well as tour the many engaging musical examples, video excerpts and multimedia presentations. The students thoroughly enjoyed the day. The Rock Hall of Fame’s on-site programs offer a unique interdisciplinary experience. Rockin’ the Schools engages students in actively exploring the history of rock and roll, while meeting and exceeding Ohio Academic Content Standards for learning in subject areas such as music, language arts, social studies, science, technology and financial literacy. The programs are varied for subject area and grade levels. The Core Programs are offered Tuesday – Friday at 10:00 am and 11:30 am from October 9, 2012 through June 14, 2013. There is still room to attend through June.
For those schools located within zip codes that begin with 440, 441, 442, or 443, the programming is free. Regional groups can participate in Rockin’ the Schools for a discounted rate. For more information on scheduling a visit, the group sales department can be contacted at 216.515.1228.
