Short Guide Collection

Looking for a starting point with your students in your rock history course?

Rock Hall EDU's short guide series summarizes various topics and musical styles commonly covered in rock history courses (including the Rock Hall's course with Ohio's Cuyahoga Community College). Each guide functions as a study aid for students, a springboard for teachers, and a textbook companion.

Most short guides contain:
- Quote
- Background summary
- Described sound or "what are some things we can listen for?"
- Noteable artists
- Breakout Factors or "what non-musical elements contributed?"
- Discussion prompts
- Vocabulary
- Fast Facts and other points of interest
- Some connected or related/overlapping musical styles
