Product Description

The Words Aptly Spoken series from Classical Conversations provides companion resources for the Classical Conversations "Challenge" level curriculum; Words Aptly Spoken: American Literature is designed for Challenge I level curriculum (High School).

Words Aptly Spoken: American Literature features excerpts from award-winning American Literature, including The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry, Paul Revere's Ride by Longfellow, An Old-Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass by Frederick Douglass, Walden by Thoreau, and others.

Each work features an introduction that includes a short author biography. Questions about each work are included: Review Questions help students understand the basic plot, characters, setting, and message of the document, while Thought Questions help students apply themes and ideas raised by the author to more familiar situations. Shorter selections are included in-book, while longer pieces (such as Alcott's An Old-Fashioned Girl and Elizabeth George Speare's The Sign of the Beaver) must be obtained separately. Each section also features a writing practice section that targets important skills and concepts (such as quotes, vocabulary, plot, developing a thesis, etc) relevant to writing an essay.

221 pages; non-consumable as answers must be written separately from the text.

This second edition differs in that it contains all-new lessons to Colson's Born Again, Kipling's If, McEvoy's If for Girls, and The Witch of Blackbird Pond. All of the readings used in Challenge I are now included in this volume. This edition has also been expanded and updated.
