“Rock, Roll ‘n’ Rithmetic”


 Educational Consulting: Arts Integration Lesson Plans for Non-Arts Teachers to bring creativity into the classroom:



Created in 2001, “Rock, Roll ‘n’ Rithmetic” is a series of original lesson plans designed to help at-risk youth integrate music royalty models from popular ASCAP recording artists with their high school math curriculum in order to achieve a fun and educational arts-integrated lesson plan.

Co-taught by Laura Kessler and any Algebra or Math teacher, the students work on high school level math equations using real data from famous recording artists’ public woes as we delve into some complex mathematical issues using professional royalty models. The students learn not only advanced mathematical functions, but also gain some useful real life lessons about financial responsibility along with some interesting accounting and legal aspects of the entertainment business.
