Blues You Can Use: Teaching the Faust Theme through Music, Literature, and Film.
Copeland, Matt; Goering, Chris
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v46 n5 p436-41 Feb 2003
Uses the blues to teach the universal Faust theme, which was a common motif expressed in many lyrics coming out of the Mississippi Delta region in the United States during the 1920s and 1930s. Uses this opportunity to open students' eyes to a musical form often overlooked and misinterpreted in mainstream culture, and to improve students' critical reading, listening, thinking, discussing, writing, and viewing.
