K-12 teachers looking to engage their students in critical thought about the world today may appreciate this collection of lesson plans created by TeachRock. Here, they will find standards-aligned lesson plans that use "contemporary pop music as an entry point into a wide variety of topics." For example, one lesson uses P!nk's song "What About Us?" to review the major events of 2017 and discuss the relationship between music and current events. In another lesson, students use the song "Something Like This" by Coldplay and The Chainsmokers as a jumping off point for exploring similarities between gods from classical mythology and modern superheroes. Lessons typically incorporate music videos and some also include downloadable charts from Little Kids Rock for various instruments. A free account is needed to access all of the lesson plans. TeachRock is a project of the Rock and Roll Forever Foundation, which was founded by actor and musician Steven Van Zandt "in response to a drop-out crisis he saw crippling American education." It is endorsed by the National Council for the Social Studies, the National Council for Geographic Education, and the National Association for Music Education.
