Rock School

Rock School ★★★ 2005 (R)

Director Argott's dynamic documentary lays bare the life of offbeat and intense music teacher Paul Green and his School of Rock Music, an after-school program in Philadelphia for highly-skilled nine to 17-year-olds. Flipping between cursing and berating his pupils to chumming around with them, Green prepares his most gifted group for an inspired appearance at the annual Zappanale festival in Germany (a tribute to the late rocker Frank Zappa). Green is often thought to be the basis for Jack Black's comedy “School of Rock,” though its creators have refuted the claim. 93m/C DVD. D: Don Argott; C: Don Argott.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
