The Mountain Reader.
Designed for use as supplemental reading, this book provides high interest reading material for beginning adult readers in rural areas of Tennessee. The book is printed in large type for readers with vision problems. Where appropriate, stories are written in a modified vernacular form. The book may be made more pertinent to geographic areas other than the Sequatchie Valley by replacing pages entitled "In Dunlap" with pages providing similar information on other towns or counties. The reading levels range from primer through fifth grade. The 14 stories in part 1 have a controlled vocabulary and all new words are listed. In part 2 difficult or unusual words are defined for each of the 15 stories. Additional practical information and material on subjects covered in stories follows some stories. Pages entitled "In Dunlap" provide information on local services and resources. (Author/YLB)
