        Rock-n-Roll Shop Class

        In this episode of NJEA’s Classroom Close-up, students blend musical and industrial arts in woodshop class by designing and building their own guitars. Under the direction of Mercer Country Teacher of the Year Michael Friedman, the class works together to create a “Restore the Shore” themed guitar that they hope to get autographed by celebrities and auction off to help raise funds for the Hurricane Sandy relief effort. Choice, creativity and mistakes are welcome in this shop class! Rather than giving up in the face of obstacles, students are encouraged to view challenges as learning opportunities, be confident, and take pride in their work.
