KWLWhat do you already know about the book and how we are using it?What do want to learn today?

Why are we doing this?Emphasize reading as an important element of the college experienceUnderscore the subtle connections between a wide range of academic disciplinesEncourage and enhance student participationCreate a sense of communityIntegrate an academic and social experience into the campus community

Create a foundation for students to explore values and ethics;in the intellectual life of the campus by encouraging open discussion, and critical thinking about a common theme;Provide an introduction to the expectations of higher educationby increasing student-to-student interaction and student-to-faculty interactionHelp students make connections between classroom and out-of-classroom experiences

4What can I do to help?Having the book as required reading in your coursesEmbedding classroom discussion, projects, or assignments based on a theme included in the bookExploring the notion of identity through naming, the way we name ourselves and others Have students attend or participate in One Book, One Harper events as they relate to themes contained in the book

Inviting students to Compare/Contrast Appalachian culture to other American RegionsExamining dialect/patterns of speech and their impact on the way we communicate with one another

5Sample Lesson- NamingThis would be a great introduction activity to the bookNames tell us a lot about people, places, and even things. Brainstorm! Think of the reasons why/how we name people

Names tell us a lot about people, places, and even things. By looking under the surface of their own names and family names, students learn more about their family history and folklore as well as cultural differences and similarities and symbolic meanings. Names come with stories attached, and every cultural group has its naming traditions. Some cultures name babies after recently deceased relatives; other families find that practice taboo. 6Sample Lesson- NamingLook at the worksheet in front of you and answer the questionsAfter everyone is done, we will discuss our answers with the class
