View Appalachia through Service Learning
Short Term 2007

This course will begin in the classroom with an exploration of the life, culture, literature, and music of Appalachia. We will read a variety of works that will introduce students to the way of life in this region. Guest lecturers will present historical, political, economic, and social perspectives that will help prepare students for the fieldwork component of the course which will take place in War, West Virginia. The service learning projects will include collecting oral histories from community members through our local sponsor, Big Creek People in Action, and visiting the local high school to discuss college life. Students will keep a journal and prepare a final project.
