Youth in Community
Journal of Folklore and Education
About This Volume
The toolkit of Local Learning (interviewing, observation, documentation, place-based learning, cultural perspectives) proves to be both utilitarian and philosophical when authors looked at the ways our youth work, learn, and play in our communities. While our authors who teach around the globe provide articles and classroom exercises showing how youth can learn in–and from–community, youth shape the narrative arc of this issue.
