MacDowell, Marsha, Ed.
This compendium of resources is designed for use by teachers, art educators, museum staff, youth leaders, program planners, and folklorists. Organized in the following way, chapter 1, "Folk Arts in Education," provides an overview of the development of folk-arts-in-education programs; chapter 2, "Reports from the Field," contains short reports from individuals who have developed or participated in a variety of folk-arts-in education projects and programs; chapter 3, "Resources," is a listing of individuals and organizations who could provide professional assistance for folk arts programming; chapter 4, "Bibliography," includes entries chosen to give general overviews of folklore study and specific references to folklife in education; and chapter 5, "Glossary," contains a short list of folklife and education terms. The remaining portion of this handbook contains excerpts from a wide range of materials developed for folk-arts-in-education projects. These excerpts indicate the variety of formats, approaches, and curriculum models used in the development of some projects. Each section of excerpts has been prefaced with a short description. (MM)
