Teaching with Folk Sources
Journal of Folklore and Education
About This Volume
This 10th Volume of the Journal of Folklore and Education offers two issues packed with resources and content. Expanding mainstream notions that primary sources are historical documents housed in hard-to-access archives, this volume showcases archival items that expand our vision of community, self, the past, the future, pedagogical opportunities—and, yes, history.
What if young people saw themselves in an archive? Recognized their families and arts in a folklife collection? Grew curious about documenting what is going on in their communities? Explore these possibilities in Issue 1, entitled “Learning with Folk Sources: Listen, Observe, Connect.”
