TN Lives & Legacies Teacher’s Guide

Tradition: Tennessee Lives and Legacies Teacher’s Guide was written by Dr. Dana Everts-Boehm, the Tennessee Arts Commission Folklife Program Assistant and designed to accompany the exhibition of the same name that toured Tennessee venues from 2010-2013. Designed in two sections for grades 3-6 and 12, the guide prepares students to visit the exhibition through learning about a selection of six artists featured in the book and exhibit. The lessons, accompanied by Tennessee state curriculum standards, are brought home to the students through a follow-up family heritage project. Dean Dixon’s photographs are included in a DVD featuring images of all twenty-five artists and groups in the book and exhibition. To request a hard copy, click here.
