Summary

Reports of Title II reading projects dealing with American studies themes indicate that the approaching celebration of the Bicentennial of the American Revolution is both generating new interest in the study of American history, literature, and culture and stimulating changes in the way such courses are taught. Teachers and subject specialists indicate that conventional courses are being replaced with short term exploratory courses, interdisciplinary and thematic courses, and simulation and games teaching. Title II funds have often supplied the missing ingredient needed before the innovations could be introduced--books, films, tapes, posters, documents, filmstrips, and other media--that appeal to avid and reluctant readers and learners alike. The 37 Title II projects summarized in this document were reported by ESEA Title II coordinators and reading and media specialists in state and local education agencies of twenty states and the District of Columbia.
