Incorporating Local Culture into the Classroom: An In-Service for Teachers.
Townsend, Catherine M., Ed.; McAbee, Patti, Ed.
These materials are designed to serve as an in-service program for South Carolina teachers interested in using local history and culture in their classrooms. The materials are organized around four different topics, each of which stems from an interview with educators expert in the incorporation of local culture in the classroom. The four topics and experts are: Getting Started in the Right Direction (Mark Wetherington); Getting It Straight from the Horses' Mouths: Regional Literature and Non-Traditional Sources (Charles Joyner); Bringing It Home to Roost: Using Folklore to Stimulate Learning (Gail Matthews-DeNatale); and Smack in the Middle of It All: Student-Centered Learning (Eliot Wigginton). Materials organized under each of these topics have been written by practicing classroom teachers and include suggested activities. Transcripts of the expert interviews and a list of additional resources and suggested readings also are included. (DB)
