Publisher Description:

This kit contains the following items:

American Literature (3rd ed.) surveys the works of more than seventy-five authors in a chronological study, connecting their lives and beliefs as they are revealed in their writings. Students will examine Colonial, Revolutionary, Romantic, Realistic/Naturalistic, Modern, and Contemporary periods and themes relevant to each period.

Category Description for American Literature (Bob Jones):

A very thorough study of American literature, including an examination of the works in relation to the authors' lives and beliefs and in light of the literary period in which they wrote. More than 75 authors are included, and attention is given to Colonial, Revolutionary, Romantic, Realistic/Naturalistic, Modern, and Contemporary periods. The content is very interesting, especially in conjunction with American History studies.

Category Description for BJU Press Literature:

Once reading skills are mastered, the Bob Jones reading curriculum becomes one of literature study from a Biblical perspective. Literary constructs and techniques are learned and explored in the context of both Christian and secular literary selections. There is increasing emphasis on the evaluation of literature against a Biblical standard. As in the lower grades, reading selections are carefully chosen and represent a variety of genres at each level. Many of these are excerpts or short stories. Grades 8 and up also include one full-length work as part of the course. In response to requests for more studies of complete works, new Study Guides have been added for The Scarlet Letter and Julius Caesar. These can be used anytime during high school. The Teacher's Editions for these studies contain the full-sized text with marginal notes as well as background information, commentary, discussion and/or essay questions, and project ideas. As the course emphasis at each level is a little different, we've further described individual course contents below. All of the Teacher's Editions contain a complete copy of the student text. In the 9th and 10th grade books, these are full-color with marginal notes and answers. All other grades have the reduced student pages in two-tone, again with marginal notes and answers. It seems like it would be difficult to share the student text - especially during discussion time - but it is possible to do so.

Testpacks include ready-to-use tests. Answers are found in the Testpack Answer Keys. Essential materials that are included in Home School Kits are listed first by grade level, followed by asterisked (*) support materials. Multigrade resources are listed together at the end.

Information overload. That’s not how you learn to appreciate classic literature!

I have used the 10th grade BJU literature curriculum and absolutely loved it; however, the 3rd edition American Literature curriculum for 11th grade is disappointing. The supplementary material is very weak. There are no reading quizzes to help prepare for the unit exams. The teacher's edition notes are not organized for easy use as in the 10th grade literature text.
