This came from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio:
Last month, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced its 2012 Inductee class (learn more at http://rockhall.com/inductees/). The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction process is an exciting, accessible way to use rock and roll in the classroom and to engage students of all ages in learning about rock and roll history, while exercising and developing critical thinking skills.
LIVE STREAM INFORMATION SESSION FOR TEACHERS: SATURDAY, JANUARY 21, 2012 11AM EST: click here
Voice Your Choice is a national project that invites students to create their own Inductee class. Who would they choose to induct into their own Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and why? The goal is to teach students to develop the ability to make aesthetic judgments, to understand the aesthetic standards of others, and to learn to present a persuasive case about their choices. These goals are key to content standards around the country– in the arts and across the curriculum. Voice Your Choice gives both teachers and students the tools to effectively evaluate the definition of “musical excellence” while creating an interactive forum in which they can further explore and explain their own aesthetic value system.
Classrooms can connect with educators from the Rock Hall’s award-winning Education Department through a variety of distance learning options to engage in discussion and to learn more about the Induction process itself. Teachers are encouraged to submit student work online, and select student projects will be showcased on rockhall.com and will be featured at a special Teachers Rock workshop to be held during the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Week in Cleveland, Ohio in April 2012.
To learn more about the project and possible strategies and approaches, join us for a special live stream information session for teachers tomorrow. Rock Hall Educators will discuss the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction process and will walk participants through resources available on the Voice Your Choice website (to be launched during the live stream).
To learn more about the project, and to access the live stream go to: www.rockhall.com/voiceyourchoice. Note, if you can’t watch the stream, it will be recorded and available on our website, and all the information we talk about will be up on our Voice Your Choice website.
