The primary purposes of this study are to determine the

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.
