To support a three-week institute for twenty-five schoolteachers that would explore Appalachian culture and history through literature, music, and theater.

Shepherd University proposes its third three-week seminar for public school teachers that will delve into the subject of Appalachian literature and culture. A literature of unexpected cultural diversity, the Appalachian literary works and topics that we have selected for the seminar will provide a deeper understanding of the complexity and cultural range of a region that encompasses the twelve states following the ridge of mountains stretching from New York to Georgia. The quality and depth of the Appalachian writers that will be explored in the seminar will allow participants the opportunity to listen to the variety of voices from this region. Participants will also take part in an Appalachian storytelling workshop led by an award-winning storyteller and listen to lectures about playwriting and dramatic storytelling. They will explore Appalachian music and tour the Appalachian heartland.

A three-week seminar for sixteen high school teachers on Appalachia's literary and cultural heritage.

Shepherd University proposes a three-week, July 2013 seminar for high school teachers that will delve into the subject of Appalachian literature and culture. A literature of unexpected cultural diversity, the Appalachian works will provide a new and deeper understanding of the complexity and cultural range of the region. Participants will take part in an Appalachian storytelling workshop led by an award-winning storyteller. They will explore Appalachian music, important in the cultural heritage and literature of the region and take part in a field trip to the Culture Center in Charleston, West Virginia, and to the Hawks Nest Industrial Disaster site to allow further opportunity for experiential learning and exploring the range of Appalachian themes and works. Perhaps the most stimulating part of the summer seminar will be the opportunity to interface with the Contemporary American Theater Festival (CATF), which will feature a stage reading of Long Time Traveling.
