Appalachian Women: A Learning/Teaching Guide.
Lord, Sharon B.; Patton-Crowder, Carolyn
While Appalachian women share many experiences and circumstances in common with American women in general and with rural American women in particular, the economics, social and political history, and circumstances peculiar to the region have forged life experiences for females in Appalachia which merit independent attention. This learning/teaching guide is designed to provide the necessary information for developing and/or facilitating graduate courses or pursuing independent learning about the Appalachian female experience, sex-role socialization, and women's career development. Each lesson provides an introduction to the literature, learning objectives, directions for the learner, classroom and individual learning activities, a bibliography of related readings, and an appendix including original articles developed specifically for the lesson. Unit I introduces the learner and teacher to the variety of issues and concerns of Appalachian women through their writing--in poetry, music, and prose. Unit II focuses on sex roles in Appalachia from both historical and contemporary viewpoints. Unit III explores psycho-social aspects of the female experience including employment, health, education, and counseling needs. More than 700 major Appalachian writings by and/or about women are listed in a supplementary bibliography. (NEC)
