Encourage students to think critically and biblically about literature.
Arranged chronologically, multiple genres of literature are integrated throughout the year, including spirituals, poetry, diary entries, letters, and literature. Developed as a "rhetoric-level" course, this curriculum will stretch students' critical thinking skills as they apply their own thoughts to original content.
Chapter-units begin with "first thoughts" from the author as well as chapter objectives. Individual daily lessons include an introduction to the work and author, as well as a list of assignments that include a warm-up, essay instructions, "concept builder" exercises that emphasize vital concepts, assigned readings, and tests. Student essays are also included for students to see how others responded. An evangelical perspective on authors' worldviews, the culture war, and a Christian response to literature, is woven throughout the curriculum. Works by Anne Bradstreet, Washington Irving, Edgar Allen Poe, and others are included in-text, while other books must be obtained separately.
American Literature is a 34 week program. Weekly chapters include 5 daily lessons (45-60 minutes each). High School level.
"History Connections" provide links between this curriculum and James Stobaugh's history curriculum. The history curriculum is not required to use this curriculum. Please note that this edition does contain "typos."
The teacher's guide includes answer keys for the concept builders and tests, as well as weekly essay choices and summary answers. Weekly tests to give students are also included. Chapter intro pages with the introduction, objectives, and "reading ahead" assignments from the student text are included, though student reading assignments are not.
This kit includes:
- American Literature Teacher Guide, 359 three-hole-punched pages, softcover.
- American Literature Student Text, 542 pages, softcover.
