American Literature - Curriculum Review
The course promotes independent learning from the student. Literary content covered in the course includes works by: William Bradford, Edgar Allan Poe, Frederick Douglass, Emily Dickinson and many more! It is a VERY thorough course that will equip students to think critically about philosophy and trends in culture. They will also learn to articulate their worldview through writing.
Each weekly chapter has 5 daily lessons with clear objectives, concept-building exercises, warm-up questions, and guided readings. It will take approximately one hour per lesson. There are weekly test to help assess student learning.
I know when it comes to high school a lot of homeschool parents begin to worry whether or not they will be able to homeschool through the highschool years. This curriculum will help put you at ease. It is such a complete and thorough American Literature curriculum and the fact that it is well laid out for the educator is an added bonus. You can check out more about it at masterbooks.net
