The Heritage Songbook is designed for teachers. History teachers in particular, because few things reveal popular attitudes more clearly than the folk music of the period. But sometimes songs can illuminate other topics. The resources on this menu may give you some idea of how to work this music into your lasses.
The Economics page gives a few brief ideas on how the songs link with certain basic economic ideas.
The Historical Catalog is a list of dates and events with associated songs.
The Science page has many ideas about how the songs tie into scientific discoveries, although most of the links are very tenuous and most of the experiments are untested.
