Foxfire Reconsidered

A Twenty-year Experiment in Progressive Education

Book - 1989
Rate this:
The author exmaines Foxfire, a highly touted teaching experiment begun in 1966 by Eliot Wigginton who used "hands-on" experiences to teach Appalachian students writing and thinking skills while instilling in them pride in their heritage. While it has been canonized by many admirers, this book represents the first objective and critical examination of the experiment, exploring Foxfire's underpinnings and linking its theory and practice to a set of global issues and concerns in American education.
