This unit contains two outside reading units for American Literature.
The first unit is the Native American experience in which students read either The Deerslayer, The Last of the Mohicans, or Bury My Heart at Wounded Knew. They then choose from a list of creative projects which they can complete on their novel, including podcasts, character playlists, and app design.
The second unit is the Modern Experience in which students read either A Time to Kill or The Greatest Generation. They will then write a five-paragraph essay based on prompts from a given list.
