Resource Directory for Teaching Appalachian Topics in K-12
The directory can serve as an entry point for research into the history of teaching Appalachian topics. To this end, citations for bibliographies are included along with D.Ed. dissertations, M.A. theses, journal articles, teaching practica, library and archival collections, and some relatively early efforts to introduce young learners and their teachers to the Appalachian region and its people.

Online Syllabi & Teach & Learning Resources
The Appalachian Studies Association's on-line syllabus archive is a resource for instructors designing Appalachian Studies courses and as well as a partial history of the teaching of Appalachian Studies.
You may browse and download syllabi by course name, discipline, institution, or instructor. You may also send us your syllabi, via our online form, so that we may add it to the archive.
Marie Tedesco's Selected Bibliography
Archives of Appalachia, East Tennessee State University
This bibliography of scholarship on Appalachia is intended to serve as a guide, primarily to works written from 1960. The exception to this principle is in the section Classics in Appalachian Scholarship, where most of the works cited predate 1960. The bibliography focuses on book-length works, not on articles written for journals. For articles see the bibliographies cited below. Excluded from the bibliography are works of fiction, including both novels and shorter works, i.e. novellas, short stories and tales. Inclusion of any work does not constitute endorsement by the Appalachian Studies Association of the viewpoints contained in that work.
