How to Use Folksongs. How to Do It Series, Number 25.
Dufty, David; Scott, John Anthony
The purpose of this bulletin, one of a series designed to aid the social studies teacher, is to indicate ways in which folksongs can be used in the classroom as a vivid reflection of the history and culture of the common people. An explanation is given of the value of the use of folksongs in the social studies classroom, followed by sections on general principles in using folksongs in the home, nursery school, kindergarten and elementary school, in unit teaching, in high school history courses, in world geography, and extra curricular activities such as folk music assemblies and clubs. A guide to further study suggests activities for classes, and lists of books, records, and periodicals that may prove helpful to both teacher and student. Although this series is aimed at helping the social studies teacher, English and music instructors will also find this of use in their classes. Related documents are: SO 005 979 through SO 006 000.
