This course emphasizes analysis of American Literature that connects the authors’ lives and beliefs with the corresponding literary periods. Lessons examine Colonial-Revolutionary, Romantic, Realistic/Naturalistic, and Modern literature and issues such as Darwinism and religious liberalism. The Student Workbook includes introductory essays about the cultural and historical events that affect each literary period, biographical essays for each author, and discussion questions for each author’s body of included work. Texts include The Scarlet Letter, Civil Disobedience, To Kill A Mockingbird, Of Mice and Men, Their Eyes Were Watching God, Death of a Salesman, and Fahrenheit 451.
Nota Bene! COMING SOON! Too far away to attend classes in person? A Survery of American Literature (both Student and Teacher Workbooks) will be for sale for the 2019 School Year, so keep your eyes peeled!
