Who We Are
Stevie Van Zandt’s TeachRock project brings rich educational materials to teachers and students everywhere – at no cost. The lesson plans and resources at teachrock.org allow a one-of-a-kind, multimedia experience that helps young people connect the history of popular music to classroom work across the disciplines. From social studies and language arts to geography, media studies, science, general music, and more: TeachRock has engaging and meaningful material for every classroom.
Lesson Plan Collections
The TeachRock lesson plans feature rich, multimedia materials and bring a new kind of energy into learning, connecting with students and teachers in an area where they’ve already made an investment: popular music.
The “Welcome Teachers” section of the site is designed to help educators make the most of all that we provide. From professional development videos to standards and partner resources, this will be a home base for teachers who bring TeachRock into the classroom.
