Students in Ms. Cooper’s first grade class at Lincoln had an unusual subject for their history lesson this fall, rock and roll.

Over five weeks teachers from Oak Park’s School of Rock came to Lincoln and taught the kids about the history of rock and roll and it’s place in our culture, as well as musical terms like chorus and bridge.

The rock lessons culminated in a field trip to School of Rock where students divided into two rock bands and used real instruments to put on a performance of AC/DC’s classic, TNT.
