Refuse to stand silently by : an oral history of grass roots social activism in America, 1921-64 by Eliot Wigginton( Book )

9 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All the men and women who tell their stories in Refuse to Stand Silently By played critical roles in some of the first--and most decisive--struggles for social justice America has experienced in this century. Yet none of them were elected or otherwise sanctioned to act on behalf of others. These are people who faced injustice and refused to stand silently by and allow it to continue. In this engrossing oral history they give not only firsthand reminiscences of seminal events in the American labor and civil rights movements, but forthright narratives of their lives, their family and educational backgrounds, their early influences, and the unlikely roads that led them to activism
Foxfire 4 : fiddle making, springhouses, horse trading, sassafras tea, berry buckets, gardening, and further affairs of plain living by Eliot Wigginton( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Planting by the signs of the moon, well digging, hewing logs, wood carving, knife making, bird trapping, and horsetrading are but a few of the aspects of Appalachian culture explored in "Foxfire 4." Like its predecessors, the volume was compiled by high school students at Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School. Information on the cultural heritage of Appalachian Georgia was gathered with photographs and tape recorded interviews of long-time area residents. Much of the narrative is in the words of the natives themselves and folk humor and wisdom and the flavor of past years are captured in their reminiscences. Subjects discussed include directions for making berry buckets, cheese, sassafras tea, corn shuck chair bottoms, coffins, a still furnace, a dishrag from a gourd, and pine resin tar. A chapter on logging describes old time logging methods, training oxen, sawmills, logging camps, and modern logging. An introduction by Eliot Wigginton, the English teacher who initiated this cultural journalism program, tells of the progress of the Foxfire movement. An afterword by Richard M. Dorson provides references for other sources of folklore and folklife. Included in the appendix are a listing of the students and community contacts who produced this book as well as a list of periodicals and resource material about the Appalachian region. (Ds)
Moments : the Foxfire experience by Eliot Wigginton( Book )

9 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The high school journalism teacher who initiated the Foxfire Project discusses the memorable learning experiences and community studies in which students are involved as they develop and publish the Foxfire magazines. The author describes the project objectives and the successfully implemented teaching techniques and learning activities so that other teachers can use or adapt these ideas and tailor them to their own specific teaching situation. At the heart of Foxfire is the conviction that students can learn about their community and humanity only outside the classroom. The project emphasizes process rather than product. Some observable achievements that accrue to participating students include an acquisition of vocational skills such as editing and writing, photography, marketing, and advertising; pride in their communities and their elders; and interdisciplinary perspective toward learning; and an appreciation for the visual and literary arts used in communication. The major portion of the book describes the four "touchstones" for students and the learning activities through which students achieve these. The four touchstones include: Gaining Skills and Confidence; Growing, Reinforcing, Checking Bases; Beyond Self; and Independence. Included in the appendices are the Introductions to "The Foxfire Book""Foxfire 2," and "Foxfire 3." (Author/RM)
