American Folklore

Students develop a class definition of folklore. In groups, they read various folklores and discuss the loss of independence and how to survive. They answer discussion questions and compare the folklore tales to art. To end the lesson, they discover how past and present folklore has changed over time and compare it to the blues found in the Delta.

I have found Lesson Planet to be an invaluable adjunct to the scope and sequence my district follows. I have used many of the worksheets as homework to reinforce what I have already gone over in class and to help students gain additional confidence on some of the more challenging lessons.
