Coal Miners and Mining Towns: Their Stories

An ethnographer studies people and retells their story through an Anthropological lens. Learners can consider the impact of coal miners, coal mining, and the mining industry on regional and national history. They interview a real coal miner, compose their personal story, then compile those stories creating a classroom living history book. This idea could be modified to fit the regional industry in your area.
