Rich Allen,

The Rock ′n′ Roll Classroom: Using Music to Manage Mood, Energy, and Learning
 
 

Pump up the volume to increase student learning!

Picture this: a room full of boisterous students suddenly calms. A sluggish afternoon math or language arts lesson turns dynamic. Music pours from an inexpensive MP3 player, and you maintain control of your classroom without a word.

Drawing on both educational and neuroscientific research, Rich Allen and W.W. Wood unlock the mystery of managing mood, energy, and learning with music in this fascinating, one-of-a-kind handbook. No matter what subject or grade you teach, The Rock ′n′ Roll Classroom provides all the notes you′ll need to shake up your classroom, including:

  • Playlists customized for specific purposes like reducing stress or increasing focus
  • Tips and tricks for accessing all your tunes easily and inexpensively
  • Anecdotes from teachers about how they use music to manage everyday situations
  • Sample lessons for across all grade levels

Get ready to tune in to this brain-compatible learning method, engage each and every one of your students, improve the power of your instruction, boost test scores and creativity, and turn on the power of music in your classroom!



"This is the book I have been waiting for! I have tried to use music in my classroom for years and have always felt like I fell short, but didn′t know how to fix it. Now I have a better understanding of how to use music in my classroom in a fun and effective way."
—Pamela L. Opel, Science Curriculum Specialist
