“To many high school students, folklore is synonymous with the stories they heard as children about kind and evil fairies, magic frogs and wands ... [or] the stories and customs from the times of their grandparents ... While both these assessments are of course correct, each is informed—albeit naively—by the assumption that folklore must be a relic from the past rather than something which can be created anew in the here and now.” From the “Introducing Folklore into the High School Curriculum,” by Mark E. Workman
