Views of Appalachia: Resource Unit.
Chafin, Shirley R.
Designed to teach twelfth grade English honors students in Kentucky to think critically, to write creatively, to develop a better self-concept, and to stimulate appreciation and pride for Appalachian literature and culture, this 9-week resource unit features mini-units on (1) Man and His Values; (2) Death; (3) Prejudice; (4) Strip Mining; and (5) Student Teaching. The unit begins with a statement of general course objectives. Each of the five mini-units includes specific objectives, estimated teaching time, presentation of materials and resources in the order they are to be used, teaching procedures, and a lesson plan for the course content. The units correlate music and art wherever possible as a means to accomplish course objectives. Emphasis is placed on the clarification of values. The last mini-unit is designed to provide the student with an opportunity to teach an Appalachian literary selection of poetry or prose to classmates. (CM)
