Developed by the staff of the Upper Cumberland Reading Project, which was funded by Title III of the Elementary Secondary Education Act, this document focuses on reading instruction. It contains (1) a unit of study on the history and geography of the Upper Cumberlands, on famous Upper Cumberland natives, and on historic but little known places and (2) a teacher's guide to historic and scenic places in the region. Each lesson plan in the study unit includes a list of objectives, suggested teacher activities, a story for primary and intermediate level pupils with related vocabulary, and suggested questions and followup activities. Resource material consists of a map of the 13-county region and a list of counties and county seats. A supplement to the study unit, the teacher's guide includes a list of student goals, four lesson plans, a list of suggestions for teaching about the Upper Cumberland region, and a bibliography. (JM)
