GUEST,Annegi What schools have done to folk music (50) RE: What schools have done to folk music 19 Aug 01

I understand that the thread is concentrating on 'music classes' in schools but as a History teacher I have used 'folk songs' both ancient and modern to illustrate an attitude or point of view towards a particular historical event. I have found that even kids who have heard nothing but 'pop' music are moved and understand the sentiments. Also I have found that having a 'folk club' within the school allows students to appreciate a different type of music without having the resentful attitude they might have if they feel it is being 'taught'.
