Excerpts from the now classic folk arts-in-education book, Passing It On which explores collaborative programs between classroom teachers and folk artists/community educators. We have excerpted four sections that map the New Jersey Main Road School’s sixth grade residency with auctioneer Andrea Licciardello. Licciardello worked with classroom teacher Glenn Christmann to present a study of auctions within a frame of regional socioeconomics.

Excerpted sections include: “The Context—New Jersey, The Garden State,” “The Artist—Andrea (Henry) Licciardello, Auctioneer”, “The School—Main Road School’s Educational Program,” “The Curriculum,” and “Collection Projects & Artifact Documenation (Ideas & Tips)”
