What is the TeachRock curriculum?

Can I come to a training even if I don’t live nearby?
Can I come to a training if I can't stay for the concert?
- Yes, but you’ll be missing a helluva show!
Do the training hours count against my professional development requirements?
- We’re trying! Wherever possible we will offer credit, but each state is different. If we can offer credit, it will say so on the tour page. But we’re still working on offering credit in several areas and will make sure to update people as this progresses. Regardless, we’ll provide all attendees with a detailed agenda of the event and a certificate of completion for their records. The Rock and Roll Forever Foundation is an approved CTLE provider in New York State. When you register for a session in New York you will have the opportunity to give us additional, personal information the state requires us to collect to ensure you get credit.
Can I share this with colleagues and friends?
- Please do! If you’re feeling really good about sharing with your colleagues or even within other networks, there’s a bunch of cool material in this folder that might help.
Can I sign up for more than one training?
- Yes, but after the second one you may be drafted to facilitate!

- While we have resources for all grade bands, the majority of lessons address content taught in 4-12 grade.
