Welcome! This course is designed to expose you to a wide variety of American authors while surveying the historical context in which they are written. We will work diligently to build key skills and read critically to engage deeply with these texts. Updates and assignments will be posted to our Google Classroom page. Please check there regularly.
Below please find the rubric and template for your final project.
"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."
Henry David Thoreau
