Folklore | Teaching Folklore
F801 | 16837 | 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.
