Regional scholars teach Appalachian culture
John C. Inscoe writes about: "The Southern Highlands according to Hollywood: Teaching Appalachian History through Film."
Those are just two of fourteen chapters in a new book: Appalachia in the Classroom: Teaching the Region ed. by Theresa L. Burriss and Patricia M. Gantt.
This is the University of Ohio Press book description.
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. Leading scholars and teachers offer practical 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.
