Remove the rear wheel, get a long screwdriver and insert it between the rotor and dust shield, then perform a prying motion all around the rotor's perimeter to move the dust shield away from the rotor.

This sounds exactly right to me. I have had this happen two or 3 times. Twice I was able to reach through the wheel and push on the shield and hear the rock drop out. Another time it was really jammed and I had to pull the wheel off.
