Teaching with Folk Sources Curriculum Guide
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 Expanding mainstream notions that primary sources are historical documents housed in hard-to-access archives, this volume showcases archival items that expand our vision of community, self, the past, the future, pedagogical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.
Issue 2 features work by our consortium project Teaching with Folk Sources, funded by the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) program. Find here frameworks and detailed lesson plans from Local Learning’s TPS consortium project members and their educator partners, organized as a Curriculum Guide.
