Teaching Rhetoric through the Lens of Appalachian Studies

Jessica Saflia will walk participants through the planning and implementation of her Appalachian Studies Unit. This activity led to her 2016-2017 students being asked to help organize and present the Friday night plenary of this year's conference. Then, she will introduce the 2017-2018 11th grade students currently in her class who were selected to participate in this presentation, introduce each group of student presenters, and they will share their "take-aways" from this learning experience and their presentations. Each group will present a specific focus that was inspired by one of the lessons or learning opportunities they were given in this course.
