extent to which Appalachian studies courses or units have
become part of the middle and secondary public school
English curricula in Central Appalachia and, in relation to
these courses, to describe content and learning activities,
to assess the effectiveness of school library media centers
as resources, to identify major institutions and individuals
who influence teachers, and to ascertain the extent to which
young adult literature is used.
Surveys were sent to English teachers and school
librarians in 305 schools in 86 counties in Kentucky,
Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. Response rates were
52% for teachers and 60% for librarians. Frequencies and
cross tabulations were computed for variables; the chisquare
test for independence was also applied to selected
variables. A case study accompanied the statistical data.
