Ozarks:  Ozarks Where the Red Fern Grows is set in the mountain country of the Ozarks. Some of the locations mentioned in the novel were Cyclone Timber county, Black Fox Hollow, Tahlequah, and Cherokee land. Ozarks Overview:  Ozarks Overview The Ozarks is an upland area of low mountains which are deeply incised by water erosion. The eroded areas are often very rugged, being difficult and treacherous to foot travel. Though the mountains of the Ozarks are relatively low, the highest point being only 2,578 feet above sea level, they nonetheless are the only large area of elevated land between the Appalachian Mountains and the Rockies. Because the mountain peaks are relatively uniform in height, the term Ozarks Plateau is quite descriptive. Find the Region:  Encompassing about 55,000 square miles, the Ozarks Plateau is roughly bounded by the Mississippi River on the east, the Missouri River on the northeast, the Osage and Neosho rivers on the northwest and west, and the Arkansas River along the south. All of south central Missouri and most of northern Arkansas fall within these bounds. On a highway map, connect New Madrid to Cape Girardeau to St. Louis to Jefferson City to Osceola, in Missouri, to Miami to Tahlequah, in Oklahoma, to Russellville, in Arkansas, back to New Madrid, and you will have a good outline of the Ozarks Plateau. The area in the light green shows the area the story takes place. Find the Region Remember, Billy’s family lived in the Oklahoma area.

Your Final Task Back to start Look at the rubric Teacher’s Guide:  Teacher’s Guide WHERE THE RED FERN GROWS    Introduction: “Where the Red Fern Grows” is a Newberry Award winning novel about a young boy and his two coon hunting hound dogs. It is set during the Depression Era, when Billy, the main character saves up his money to buy two dogs that become his best friends. The major themes of determination, spirituality, sacrifice, love beyond loyalty, and family make this a novel students will always remember.   Aim: This novel provides the perfect springboard for learning more about the Depression Era, the Ozark Mountains, dog breeds, and hunting traditions. The vocabulary is rich and meaningful. It is my aim to create a curriculum web to compliment the teaching of the text. It will educate students about the geography surrounding the Ozarks and the circumstances surrounding The Great Depression. Students will learn the attributes of hunting dog breeds, and construct an understanding of the man who wrote the novel in 1960.   continued Back to start Purpose:  Rationale: Using good literature that appeals to middle school students motivates reluctant readers. It transmits ideas, reflects societies and eras, and expresses the human imagination. A well-chosen novel brings enrichment and joy to the reader. A curriculum web that supports this type of literature will draw the reader into the novel even further. Description of audience & prerequisites: 5th – 6th grade is an appropriate grade level range. The novel Where the Red Fern Grows must have been read. Basic use of computers is required to navigate through the curriculum web. Students must have experience with expository essay writing. Purpose Back to start continued Learning objectives – standards: Students will read and interpret a work of literature. It is a state goal to read and understand stories that are representative of various societies, eras, and ideas. Illinois State Goal 2 in English Language Arts indicates this. Teaching Strategies:  Teaching Strategies Instructional Plan: The students will spend 3 weeks engaged in the process of reading the novel Where the Red Fern Grows. After reading of the novel, the students will complete the curriculum web to emphasize other areas. These areas are: The Ozark Mountains The Great Depression Era Wilson Rawls, author Attributes of Redbone Coon dogs List of Materials: A classroom set of the novel (25 copies) Access to computers Curriculum Web Lined paper for note taking and essay writing I hope you will enjoy this curriculum web.   Back to start continued Assessment:  Plan for Assessment and Evaluation: This curriculum web will assist students with research needed to write a simple expository paper. The paper is scored under the English component of Language Arts, making this project multidisciplinary in scope. The quality and accuracy of the information presented in a written format will reflect the knowledge acquired during the task.
