A Guide to Folklife and Folk Arts Programs for Schools and Cultural Institutions. Revised.
Lambrecht, Winifred; Bell, Michael
This guide is specific to Rhode Island in its resource orientation, but is broadly applicable to any geographic area in its overall approach and format. Designed to introduce folklore, folklife, folk arts, and ethnic arts to students of all ages, this program guide takes advantage of on-going multicultural activities of the Folk Arts Program and the Arts-in-Education Program at the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA). After introductory sections giving detailed definitions of terms and contextual references, outlines are presented that describe student/teacher preparation, school models, a sample unit/project plan, and extensive resource guides. Resources included are folk arts workshops/demonstrations/lectures available through RISCA; educational kits; national, regional, and local institutions; record producers; and an extensive bibliography. Regional resources include those found in any of the New England states, while Rhode Island resources are divided into a general ethnographic institutions category, and institutions related to specific interests.
