NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS! This summer, from Monday, July 17 to Thursday, July 20, Steven Van Zandt's Rock and Roll Forever Foundation will hold a four-day Teacher Workshop centered on the TeachRock curriculum at New York University. Geared toward middle and high school teachers of all disciplines who use or are interested in using the TeachRock curriculum (available at teachrock.org), this workshop will feature guest presentations and group discussions, exploring participants' experiences with TeachRock materials and the future of the project. A small group of handpicked educators will be invited to attend. To apply, send an application to [email protected] containing the following: • Teacher's name and contact information (e-mail address, phone number, and mailing address) • School affiliation and location, subject areas and grade levels taught • A description of no more than three paragraphs indicating why you would hope to be a part of the workshop. Include a list of the TeachRock lessons you have used and in what context, with a brief analysis of the results. If you have not yet used our materials but are planning to do so in the coming school year, provide an explanation of which lessons you plan to incorporate and how they fit into your existing class model. Applications are due by 11:59pm EDT on Friday, April 7, 2017. Those who are selected will be notified on or around April 24. There is no registration fee, and participants will receive a free continental breakfast and lunch each day of the workshop. Accommodations and travel are not provided.

New York City’s high school system is built on choice, but in reality many of the city’s low-income students of color are shut out of its top schools. Now, the city is trying to figure out how to give more students a fair shot — and in the process make schools more diverse. Chalkbeat NY has been following this story closely, and now we’re inviting people from across the system to join us in a conversation about what can be done to improve this process. Get your tickets here. Catch up with our reporters and connect with others who care about New York City schools at this solutions-oriented panel discussion and networking event. Your $17 ticket donation supports Chalkbeat, and drinks and appetizers are on us! (Two drink tickets for either beer or wine will be provided to guests over 21 years old.) Happy hour will begin at 6 p.m., followed by a panel discussion at 6:45 with additional time for mingling once the panel wraps. We look forward to seeing you there!
