Folklore | TEACHING FOLKLORE
F801 | 2451 | Johnson


This section of F801 is intended to address questions of lesson preparation,
textbook evaluation, and teaching skills especially as they are a part of
folklore and ethnomusicology courses. Students will be required to prepare
and present a lesson for a hypothetical folklore or ethnomusicology course
and to observe the teaching practices of veteran teachers in folklore,
ethnomusicology and adjacent fields. We shall draw upon the book Teaching
Tips for practical suggestions. Included as well will be an opportunity for
a video-taped micro-teaching and instruction on the preparation of a
teaching portfolio. Students may take the course for one to three credits,
and this course may be taken in addition to the spring section of F801.
