Country Roads: A Regional Approach to Education.
Gates, Michael; Welch, Jack
Effective classroom teaching in Appalachia, as well as in other rural areas, may (1) center on a theme familiar to the students in teaching literature; (2) involve students in socio-drama to help them recognize their identities, empathize with others, and clarify their values; (3) take advantage of the students' culturally acquired predispositions to be person-oriented and to identify with the land; and (4) appreciate the mountaineer's strong sense of independence. Using these suggestions, the teaching of writing may then begin with the simple elements--words--and proceed to sentence construction, the arrangement of a paragraph, the creating of a narration involving several paragraphs, and, finally, the writing of an essay including idea and paragraph organization.
