Readings in American LiteratureTo understand the full scope of American history, one must acknowledge and respect the significance of the ongoing undercurrent of artistic contributors. Students should be encouraged to think and explore the world of literature. An appreciation and understanding of fine works of classic literature, poetry, and essays, as well as the development and contribution of the literary segment of our population throughout America's history, will serve only to enhance a student's academic career and perspective on the world around him.

Following each literary passage are several multiple-choice and open-ended questions. These questions are designed to highlight and reinforce important points about what the students have read, and help them to apply reasoning and critical thinking to the literary work. By asking students to immediately recall and consider facts and concepts they've just read about, the aim is to affix in their minds the overall ideas and some of the more essential details of the themes about which the selected authors wrote.

This workbook series can also be used as a companion to our The History of American Literature, a comprehensive history of the subject in workbook form.
