Product Description

Move chronologically through excerpts from America's greatest literature. Featuring a wide variety of works, including diaries, poems, pamphlets, legends, short stories, songs, speeches, autobiographies, and more, students will be exposed to different types of works from different eras, allowing parents to easily tie together literature and history. Designed for students in grades 5-8, the selected literature will introduce them to William Bradford, Thomas Paine, Poe, Whitman, Lincoln, Douglass, Twain, Chief Joseph, Jack London, Langston Hughes, Louise Erdrich, and others.

The American Literature Student Text engages students before, during, and after they read the lesson's selected work. "Before Reading the Selection" pages feature information about the author and piece, as well as objectives and exercises that focus on reading, writing, vocabulary, and thinking skills. The selection itself follows, with definitions of bolded words and suggestions of things to consider in the margins. After students finish reading the piece, multiple-choice and open-ended questions review comprehension, and encourage students to understand different concepts used in literature, think critically, and think creatively. A final activity page provides activities that center on grammar, writing, speaking, listening, and media skills. Units conclude with a summary of concepts and excerpts; comprehensive review questions help assess students' retention of knowledge. 652 pages, indexed with glossary, hardcover.

The Student Workbook provides exercises for review and reinforcement. Worksheets are tied to selections in the student text, and include the unit number at the top of the page. Matching, short answer, writing, word bank, crosswords, chart completions, and other types of engaging activity worksheets are included. 72 non-reproducible pages, softcover.

The Teacher's Resource Library CD-ROM includes a variety of activities, resources, and self-guided materials to help you and your child through this course. Planning guides for creating lesson plans and assessment options for measuring your child's understanding are also included. The main menu includes printable activities, tests, and resources, with activities organized by unit; an answer key for all student exercises is also included.
