FEAST: Folklore Education & Storytelling for Teachers

Nina Jaffe, Project Coordinator

FEAST: Folklore Education & Storytelling for Teachers is a multimedia resource of oral traditions, family stories, folklore-based curricula, and annotated web resources created by Bank Street College graduate students and alumni in collaboration with the Graduate School and the Bank Street College Alumni Association.

Oral History and Family Lore

"There is Nothing Like Family"

These samples represent writings by teachers who have attended Bank Street College of Education and have studied folklore as part of their degree program. These family stories also became part of what teachers used in their curriculum and as basis for longer independent studies. The complete collection, fully indexed by title and subject, is on display at the Bank Street College Library. We hope you enjoy the resources and that they serve to broaden your own sense of history, tradition, and the possibilities of folklore in education.
