Whatever Happened to Foxfire? Still Glowing?
Phi Delta Kappan, v97 n5 p55-59 Feb 2016
The 50th anniversary of the creation of "Foxfire" magazine and the Foxfire Museum and Heritage Center merits the question of how that innovative program of teaching and learning influences education today. Despite its troubled history, the program continues to exist and won the 2015 Georgia Governor's Awards for the Arts and Humanities for its sustained contributions to the welfare of schools and communities. The author maintains that "Foxfire" has benefited its local community, which was part of its original intention, and that its influence is also visible in many of today's current activity-centered programs even if many of today's educators don't credit it or even know its name.
