View artifacts, historic photos, and primary documents through PowerPoints that can be used during instruction.
Learn more information about Dylan’s time in Nashville and watch performances by Joan Baez, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, and Linda Ronstadt. These videos can be used as supplementary material to illustrate the music and relationships discussed in the teacher’s guides.
