Learn language arts through studying classic literature! Featuring works that represent the best of American writing, units are organized around the major forms of writing: the short story, the novel, the essay, and poetry. Readings must be obtained separately and are not included in the book (list below, or the in the 'companion products' box above).
This book is divided into two sections; the student half is at the beginning and the teacher notes in the back. The teacher section features notes for each unit as well as a list of reading assignments, objectives for the unit, and terms to identify; line-listed answers for each unit follow, along with two essay checklists.
The student portion of the book is written directly to the student; it is suggested that they keep a notebook for writing assignments, vocabulary words, definitions for literary terms, and short story/essay assignments. Lessons are comprised of a series of questions in an outline format. Questions cover elements of literature, the story and themes in the writing, and personal reflection exercises.
With literature at its center, the Gold Book: American Literature will enhance your high school student's ability to read and understand literature in all its varying forms.
