Say That You Love Me...: A Teacher's Guide to Appalachian Awareness.
Stafford, Chris; And Others
This collection of articles provides a resource guide for teachers concerned about developing a better understanding of Appalachian culture and a more effective involvement with Appalachian children. The intention of the guide was to make available to teachers a manual which answers basic questions about the Appalachian culture and to suggest ways of using Appalachian culture materials in the classroom. Information on folklore, woods lore, music, handcrafts and children's literature is included in the first section of the guide. Day care administrators will find in the second section recommendations on how to integrate Appalachian children into a center which has previously not been utilized by this group. An extensive annotated bibliography of books for adults and books for children lists many works written by Appalachians and other works evoking feelings or containing information reflecting the values of Appalachians. Works basic to the practice of early childhood education and lists of films for adults and films for children are also included in the bibliography. In conclusion, a list is offered that identifies and briefly describes non-profit and other organizations which make available information about and products made in Appalachia. (Author/RH)
