The historical development of American literature from the colonial period to 1900 is the central theme of this course. Through this course students gain an understanding of the ideas that fostered the growth of the United States and the ways in which its literature became distinctively American. Many of the works studied are non-fiction, including letters, written histories, essays, sermons, biographies, autobiographies, and persuasive speeches. In addition to reading, students will develop composition skills by analyzing the literary selections and applying the basic organizational pattern of a good essay.
