The Power of Stories.
Fisher, Steve
Appalachian Journal, v29 n4 p421-25 Sum 2002
A college professor uses Appalachian students' stories as a means of building community in the classroom and fusing the personal and theoretical. The sharing of stories helps students deconstruct outside definitions and stereotypes and enables them to take power over their own images and reinvent themselves. Once students accept themselves, they can accept the dignity and equality of others. (TD)
