This curriculum unit offers students the opportunity to become researchers of history.

Student worksheets, background information, bibliographies, and suggestions for integrating ideas and making interdisciplinary connections are provided. (Mm)

Cracking chestnuts : the living tradition of classic American contra dances by David Smukler( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Cracking Chestnuts" was originally a column that grew out of an exciting gathering in Syracuse, NY in March of 2004, when a group of interested callers spent a day together looking at some favorite contra chestnuts. The column ran in the CDSS News, newsletter of the Country Dance and Song Society. This book is written for those already familiar with the basic figures and conventions of contra dancing and includes useful teaching guidelines. It includes music for each dance, dance level rating, an appendix of 20 additional dances which did not appear in the original columns, and essays on how to call chestnuts, triple minor math, and a biography of Ralph Page and his influence on much of the dance repertoire we use today
