Engaging Students Through Music

History teacher Ben Wides “traces it back” with a Teachrock.org CNN Soundtracks lesson plan that places Kendrick Lamar at the beginning of an exploration of Civil Rights based social movements from the mid-20th century to Black Lives Matter. The video was filmed at East Side Community High in New York, NY during Wides’ “Rock and Roll and Postwar History” class, and the lesson plan featured is one of the 150 K-12 lesson plans for all disciplines available free at Teachrock.org.

What artist will you trace back with your students?
