ASA 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.

Course Syllabi

Appalachian Studies Association's online syllabus archive is a resource for instructors designing Appalachian Studies courses and as well as a partial history of the teaching of Appalachian Studies.


Syllabi are listed according to the department in which they are taught. Click here to submit your syllabus to be listed on this page. Include your name, the course, department, and school name.

Academic Programs 

This list was compiled with help from Stephanie Roark Keener of the John B. Stephenson Center for Appalachian and Comparative Highland Studies at Lees-McRae College and David Veve of the Appalachian Studies Center at North Georgia College and State University.
