Appalachia in the Classroom contributes to the
twenty-first century dialogue about Appalachia by offering topics
and teaching strategies that represent the diversity found within
the region. Appalachia is a distinctive region with various
cultural characteristics that can't be essentialized or summed up
by a single text.
Appalachia in the Classroom offers chapters on teaching
Appalachian poetry and fiction as well as discussions of
nonfiction, films, and folklore. Educators will find teaching
strategies that they can readily implement in their own classrooms;
they'll also be inspired to employ creative ways of teaching
marginalized voices and to bring those voices to the fore. In the
growing national movement toward place-based education,
Appalachia in the Classroom offers a critical resource and
model for engaging place in various disciplines and at several
different levels in a thoughtful and inspiring way.
