We just heard about this four-week Google+ online class celebrating the Everly Brothers, one of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s first inductees!
From the Hall of Fame:
You are invited to join the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum’s award-winning education team for a special Google+ online class on the musical legacy of the Everly Brothers – 1986 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees and this year’s annual Music Masters honorees. Learn how Don and Phil Everly became the leading duo of rock and roll, transforming the country sounds of their childhood into rich harmonies and perfectly crafted songs that crossed over from country to pop and even R&B in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
Each week will focus on a new topic – their role in the first wave of rock and roll, their musicianship and skill as singers, and their approach to songwriting. The class will also connect the legacy of the Everly Brothers to bands and artists on the radio today. Continue to check Google+ for resources to continue the conversation in your classroom– infographics, video demonstrations, lesson plans and other materials that you can only find at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.
TITLE: CLASSROOM CONVERSATIONS: UNDERSTANDING THE EVERLY BROTHERS’ MUSICAL LEGACY This program is appropriate for middle and high school students. There is no cost to connect.

Yesterday, EducationPlus’ new initiative, Principles for Principals, kicked off with more than 100 area principal and assistant principals gathered to hear from Dr. Sue Szachowicz. A retired high school principal, she shared the story of how her high school went from failing state tests to acing them. She spoke about how every school has their own DNA, and how leadership brings out collaboration in staff, which provides a united front to ensure positive outcomes for students. Several attendees tweeted during the session using #EdPlusP4P. In addition, Dr. Szachowicz, a Senior Fellow at the International Center for Leadership in Education, provided access to her presentation deck: Szachowicz | Leadership | St. Louis.
The event with Dr. Szachowicz was a free kick off to the new Principles for Principals Academy. EducationPlus, starting October 14, offers a comprehensive professional learning opportunity. If you were unable to make it yesterday, you are still able to register for the academy.
