A Structural Guide for Appalachian History and Culture in American History.
The document discusses making Appalachian history, especially north Georgia, an integral part of American history in grade 11. Course objectives are to: (1) present current historical and cultural facts on Appalachia; (2) encourage students to explore and examine their cultural background; (3) understand the causative and sequential relationships between the past and present; (4) try to develop concern for the dignity, welfare, rights, and freedom of all individuals; (5) instill in each individual his worth to the community, state, and nation; and (6) put Appalachian culture on an equal footing with other American cultures. The document also explains attitudes to be acquired by the students; skills to be learned; content guide; problems to be solved; resource persons; individual projects, excursions or field trips; audiovisual aids; procedures for bringing in outside resources and taking students through the community; and evaluation procedures. The chronologically designed American history course outline is loosely constructed to allow insertion of materials developed through continuing research on Appalachia. A bibliography includes publications on the history of the area, literature, cultural background, folklore, and journal articles. (KM)
