(Highlight Reel): Juno Award Winning Alt-Rockers DEAR ROUGE Educates Us on Social Media Usage with “Fake Fame”

Editor's Note:  Here at Scholastic Perspectives, we'll be examining social media usage and its impact on students coming up.  As an educator, one thing I've noticed is missing is the lack of digital citizenship that is being taught towards our students.  Because of this, students aren't socialized like they should be and major cyberbullying issues arise because of the lack of digital citizenship in the curriculum.  As educators, we need to realize that cell phones are here to stay and we need to adapt, and that's teaching students how to interact appropriately on their cell phones.  Also, set aside times to put away the cell phone and be present, especially when you're with loved ones, nature, or at concerts and other forms of entertainment.  In this highlight reel with Scholastic Perspect...

Acclaimed “Play It Loud” Book Used as Basis for Metropolitan Museum of Art’s New Rock-Focused Exhibition

The new exhibition, Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll, opened publicly at The Met early last week. A collaboration with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the show was inspired in part by Brad Tolinski and Alan di Perna's 2016 book, Play It Loud: An Epic History of the Sound, Style and Revolution of the Electric Guitar. From Jimmy Page to Steve Miller, the glitterati of rock turned out for the exhibition's opening bash on April 1. The Roots shook the house with a rousing live performance as the crowd wandered awestruck through a sequence of galleries filled with a holy grail of musical instruments graced by the hands and imaginations of legendary artists spanning the entire rock era-from Chuck Berry, to all four Beatles, to instruments played by contemporary music icons like Lad...
