FEAST: Folklore Education & Storytelling for Teachers

January 2020 | Bank Street Graduate School of Education & The National Center for Children in Poverty

The Bank Street Graduate School of Education curated FEAST: Folklore Education & Storytelling for Teachers as a culturally competent multimedia resource of oral traditions, family stories, folklore-based curricula, and annotated web resources. This resource offers a sample of writings by teachers who have attended Bank Street College and have studied folklore as part of their degree program; a complete collection of the fully indexed resources is on display at the Bank Street College Library. Additionally, the Bank Street Graduate School of Education has curated a list of recommended websites that teachers can explore to find a diverse collection of folklore education materials across pre-k-12 content area and that represent cultures from across the world (e.g., Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, South America, Australia, and Oceania). These resources serve to broaden teachers’ own sense of history, tradition, and the possibilities of folklore in education.
