A Teacher's Guide to Folksinging: A Mini-Elective for Students in Grades 9, 10, 11, and 12.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Secondary Curriculum Development.
To help meet the needs of nonmusic-major students in grade 9, 10, 11, and 12, this teacher's guide offers guidelines for a course to stimulate students' interest and involvement in folksinging. Guidelines are provided on the role of the teacher, methods of instruction, and suggested time allotments. Brief descriptions and comments on some typical folk instruments--the autoharp, banjo, dulcimer, guitar, and zither--are given. A bibliography of multimedia resource materials--books and periodicals, audiotapes, films, filmstrip and record sets, and records--is included, with annotations for many of the items listed. An appendix lists other types of music productions, e.g., symphonies and musicals, that incorporate or are based on folk songs.
