Play-Party Games Lesson Plans
The ongoing outcome of my Berea Music Fellowship project is disseminating the reconstructed play-party games through school-based artist-in-residence teaching in eastern and other parts of Kentucky, lesson plans for use by other public school teachers, and dance workshop events such as Berea's Christmas Country Dance School. Also in the works is the possibility of expanding this research into a book-length publication for teachers that would include lesson plans for teaching the games, the cultural connection to rural western Kentucky, and stories from informants.
