Appalachian Studies for the High School Student with an Emphasis on Appalachian Literature.
Hays, Jeanne Tarullo
Designed to give Appalachian high school students an awareness of their own mountain culture, this guide begins with a section on values clarification and cultural awareness. Chapters II through V lay the groundwork and give reason and explanation to the works the students will examine in Chapter VI. These chapters deal with the geography, history, and folk culture of Appalachia and with Appalachian language. Chapter VI, "Appalachian Literature," covers the following: (1) Tall Tale and Tall Talk; (2) Local Color: Realism and Romance; (3) New Dimensions of Realism: Renaissance in the Hills; (4) Using the Past to Search for Identity; (5) Poetry; and (6) Essays in Criticism and Culture. Each of these sections contains suggested teaching methods and student activities. The Project section of the guide, to be used the last week of the course, is designed to enable students to investigate a part of the course that especially interested them, by working on individual projects.
