Foxfire, a magazine started by Wigginton to interest and motivate students in his ninth and tenth grade English classes, has been hailed as an outstanding educational experiment. It included creative work by students in his and other high schools and by professional writers and artists, as well as feature articles and photographs centered on the surrounding community and its history. Wigginton recounts the history of Foxfire along with his personal observations as a teacher, explains his philosophy of education, and cites examples of this philosophy at work in several other schools. He also describes a sample course based on the Foxfire experience and gives suggestions for integrating the techniques into the whole curriculum. Teachers, administrators, and those involved in oral and local history projects will find much of value here. Shirley L.
