54-04 What a Good Idea: Folklorically Informed Alternatives to Traditional Assignments in Undergraduate Classes

Friday, October 22, 2:00 pm–3:30 pm

This live event will not be recorded.

Chair: Mary Sellers (Pennsylvania State University) and Cory Hutcheson (Kutztown University of Pennsylvania)

Folklorists frequently create pedagogically cross-curricular classrooms but often only manage to share their experiences, ideas, and resources through ad hoc networks of expertise. This discussion forum will be a place to get inspiration and exchange ideas on how to integrate and assess folklore in the classroom. The panel discussants will share novel approaches to assessment in traditional folklore courses and open the conversation to the practice of integrating folklore into other commonly-taught, extra-disciplinary courses, such as first-and-second-year writing, history, and communications.
