Online Community

The Appalachian Studies Association was formed in 1977 by a group of scholars, teachers, and regional activists who believed that shared community has been and will continue to be important to those writing, researching, and teaching about Appalachia.

Appalachian Studies Resources

K-12 Educational Resources

The list includes entries for teaching in and about the Appalachian region for use by teachers in the K-12 classroom, as well as resources for teachers pursuing advanced degrees. Inclusion on the list is not an assurance of quality. The original list of educational resources was developed by Philip Obermiller and posted to the ASA website in 2001. In 2011, when the current version of the website was developed, the list was updated. Links were updated, entries were reorganized into new categories, and a few entries were added to the list. If you have any additions or revisions for the list, or would like to share your experiences using some of these resources, please contact us.
