Practical Resources for Critical Science Education in Rural Appalachia
Kingsolver, Ann
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v12 n1 p219-225 Mar 2017
This article argues that there is no typical Appalachian experience or community. There is more cultural diversity and global interchange in this region of the U.S. than appears in popular representations of "isolated" Appalachians, which are ironic because of the region's having been so central to the global extractive economy for centuries. Some pedagogical resources are provided to encourage or contribute to a broader perspective on the possibilities and knowledge centered in rural communities, with Appalachian examples.
