Oral Traditions, Changing Rural Landscapes, and Science Education
Stapleton, Sarah Riggs
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v12 n1 p189-198 Mar 2017
This forum response extends the argument made by Avery and Hains that oral traditions can be useful for including the cultures and contexts of rural areas within science instruction. To buttress the oral expressions presented in Avery and Hains, I compare oral expressions of a second rural area, 600 miles to the South, in Eastern North Carolina. I explore similarities and differences in expressions from the two areas and consider the changing rural context within Eastern North Carolina. I add a consideration of larger demographic shifts impacting many rural areas--particularly in the US South--and close with a discussion of implications for science education.
