Folksong in the Classroom, v14 n1-3 Fall-Spr 1993-1994
"Folksong in the Classroom," is a newsletter representing a network of teachers of English, history, music and the humanities. Its purpose is to make available to the educational community the folk music that is American heritage and to which all young people should have access. This volume serves two main purposes: (1) to provide teachers of upper elementary and junior high school grades with songs for classroom use; (2) to make available an informal song book that may be used by those who work with teacher and parent groups and with student teachers. This volume containing 21 songsheets, is divided into five categories: immigrants, African-American, Native American, work, and environment. These songs which present the North American experience provide basic source materials to convey the first impression of American life, language, and literature. To demonstrate human diversity, the immigrant category collected not only songs in English, but also songs in Spanish, French, and German. (ML)
