Journal of the Assembly of Rural Teachers of English (ARTE), 1993
The 1993 issue of this annual journal contains five articles about rural education by rural English teachers. "Rural: The Only Place To Be" (Craig Akey) speaks of a personal commitment to rural education, presents examples of prose and poetry by junior and senior high school students in an innovative "outdoor literature" course, discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the small school, and describes how one small school has overcome the disadvantages of smallness through innovative technology and the team approach. "Teaching Scientific Vocabulary: A Joint Venture for Rural Schools" (V. Pauline Hodges) describes methods of scientific vocabulary development for students who have difficulty reading. "A Medley of Writings" (Beth Hunnicutt) contains four short pieces: a personal narrative about the joy of fishing with one's extended family, a discussion of why rural teachers must reject rural marginalization for themselves and their students, a book review of "Dreamers and Desperadoes" (Craig Lesley and Katheryn Stavrakis, eds.), and descriptions of three books with female protagonists for young people. "A Community-History Project" (Marilyn Smith) describes a senior class project on local history. "Winning for the Small Schools" (Nathan James Weate) discusses the role that rural communities can play in improving American life and the role that rural schools can play in the restructuring of American education.
