While roaming around the website for the Association for Cultural Equity (founded by Alan Lomax) I found lesson plans based on collected songs from their archive. Like this one, based on “Fly Around My Blue-Eyed Gal” sung by Hobart Smith.

What other online resources do you recommend for classroom teachers of folk music and dance?

For offline resources, check out our Teacher Training Course this summer, offered during Family Week at Ogontz by the inimitable Jane Miller. There is still space available in this fabulous course if you act soon!
