Product Description
American Literature Essay Prompts: An Expanding Bundle
This expanding bundle of essay prompts will cover all eras and movements of American literature -- from the pre-colonial era to the present. The rubrics make for quick and simple grading that are standards-aligned. Use them as in-class assignments, take-home essays, or the essay portions of exams.

Each is linked to 2 CCSS for grades 11-12 (one for writing and one for reading: literature or reading: informational text). Each contains:
• 2 essay questions
• 2 rubrics
• Link to the full text (when available)

Current Bundle contents:
• "Plan to Attaining Moral Perfection" excerpt from The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
• "Bernice Bobs Her Hair" by F. Scott Fitzgerald
• "To Build a Fire" by Jack London
• "The Fall of the House of Usher" by Edgar Allan Poe

Coming Soon:
• "A Rose for Emily" by William Faulkner
• "Walden" by Henry David Thoreau
• "The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe
• And many more -- request it and I'll add it ASAP!

A word on the bundle:
I don’t know how many prompts will be in this bundle in the end, because I can’t foresee an end. Topics for American lit essays are endless, right? The price of this bundle will increase as additional prompts are created, so I encourage you to buy it today!

Thank you for stopping to Read a Little Dream!
