Thursdays 11-12:30–American Literature: 1860-Present
This course meets each Thursday and is comparable to the college-level courses of the same name. In this course, students read and analyze works of American literature from colonial to 1860 in the fall semester and 1860 to contemporary times during the spring semester. We will read a variety of literature, including poetry, short stories, novels, drama, and nonfiction. In addition, to literature, students will engage in an extensive review of grammar, usage, and mechanics skills utilizing practice exercises and various editing exercises. Students will continue to improve and develop their vocabulary through structured practice. Finally, students will take regular tests and quizzes as well as midterm and semester exams. These tests, quizzes and exams are essay assignments provide an opportunity for students to synthesize and apply information from the reading selections to show the ways that literature reflects the society from which it grows. In addition to test and exam essays, students will learn to write rhetorical analyses, and other kinds of essays, which appear on College Board examinations and to help prepare them for the rigor of academic writing. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be prepared to take the CLEP Test in American Literature to earn three (3) hours of college credit for this course.
