Moving Mountains, Expanding Horizons
The goal of my project is to continue to build a curriculum where students feel like they see themselves in their own learning environment. By expanding my classroom’s independent reading library to be more representative of Appalachian culture and including more Appalachian literature in my English curriculum, students will reframe how they see themselves and their home. When students read literature that reflects who they are, they gain culturally responsive leadership skills. This project’s outcomes are measured through a survey and ACT scores.
