Haleman, Diana L.; DeYoung, Alan J.
Journal of Research in Rural Education, v16 n1 p3-7 Spr 2000
Examples from 10 Appalachian rural schools demonstrate how developing curricula around local interests builds on students' prior experience and makes education relevant, and how educational experiences that are intimately connected to one's community develop a sense of civic responsibility. Information technology enables students to see the myriad ways that local issues are connected to the larger world. (TD)
