English in Texas, v11 n3 Spr 1980
The articles in this journal issue provide information on the study and teaching of folklore. Separate articles discuss the following topics: oral history; the teaching of folklore in Texas secondary schools and colleges, both as a separate discipline and as supporting enrichment material; a term project assignment in a college-level American folklore class; folklore as a critical approach to fiction; and an extracurricular project in which Albany, Texas, high school students have researched the past of their region and written about it in "Old Timer," a student publication similar in concept to "Foxfire." Also included in the journal issue are an interview in which William A. Owens, a folklorist, fiction and nonfiction writer, and teacher, talks about writing and publishing; a list of works included in an exhibit about East Texas literature; a bibliography of works on various aspects of using folklore in the classroom, from elementary through university and adult education levels; and an annotated list of ten folklore textbooks currently in use at the college level.
