We have secured two new American literature classes in response. Students taking American literature are welcome to wait for the lessons to be completed or to switch to either Elements of Literature (designed for 7th-9th grade) or American Literature in Historical Context (designed for 9th-11th grade). All 36 weeks of both of these classes have been submitted by the teacher and will be made available over the next several weeks. We apologize for this inconvenience. Please contact Customer Service with any questions.  [/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”How to Use This Course” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” google_fonts=”font_family:Open%20Sans%3A300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C600%2C600italic%2C700%2C700italic%2C800%2C800italic|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]American Literature is more than simply reading classic pieces. It is also a study of the men and women who shaped the times those pieces were written in. This course draws on numerous historical sources to provide a rich and engaging look at the people, places, and literary works of the 1600s-1800s.[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”Course Introduction” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” google_fonts=”font_family:Open%20Sans%3A300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C600%2C600italic%2C700%2C700italic%2C800%2C800italic|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]This interactive course offers two ways to complete it—through an interactive online platform built into Schoolhouse Teachers or through a downloadable PDF.

Written assignments are also included.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Course Outline” tab_id=”outline”][vc_column_text]Unit 1: Colonial Period
