Description:

This class is officially listed as “Kentucky Studies,” but we will broaden the focus to include Appalachia, then narrow our study to the Eastern Kentucky region, and then broaden it again to the state of Kentucky. The content will include history, culture, perceptions, and current issues.

Course Objectives:

• To develop a comprehensive knowledge of the historical, political, social and economic development of both Appalachia and Kentucky.

• To understand both the historic and current issues facing these regions and the connection between the past and the present.

  • Welcome to this course!  You will need a 3-ring binder, or at least a section of one, in order to be organized and maintain all of the resources I will give you.  We do not have a textbook, but will rely on primary and secondary sources online and the photocopies I will give you.  PLEASE bring paper and pen/pencil EVERY day--we will use them, I promise!


  • If you did poorly on the quiz over 20th century Appalachia, look at the power point posted here, take notes, and then re-take it!

    Tuesday is the last day to submit your oral history project.

    And Wednesday, we will have a "Southern/Appalachian/Kentucky" lunch together.
