PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Bundle of my Best-selling, Classroom-tested units for American literature. With this set of resources, you will have a full year's worth of materials for teaching the canon of American literature from America's beginnings to today. Teach from Native American literature to Hemingway's realism to Bradbury's science fiction.

With each time period through the course of American Literature, I’ve provided complete teaching packs for some key canonical pieces to represent the time period. There is a mix of fiction, nonfiction, informational texts, and poetry. Throughout the course of these units, students will read, write, create, present, and most of all learn and grow. You can pick and choose what works for you, or use the entire curriculum to cover each CC state reading, writing, and speaking standard in a year’s time. Not only will students be reading great American literature, but also they will be researching and writing along the way. If you are new to an American Literature course/junior English, or if you are veteran teacher looking to make some changes, differentiation, or even modern connections, this comprehensive resource will provide you more than enough material to do a great job – with as little prep for you as possible! Each time period starts with a carefully crafted, classic PPT designed to frame the unit and explain to students why studying American Literature can enrich their lives. This resource will provide the rigor and relevancy you need with as much engaging and energizing elements that your teens will enjoy as well.
