Salem Academy Curriculum


English III American Literature Eleventh Grade Year-long course

Overview


This course consists of a broad survey of American literature, beginning with works published in the seventeenth century and continuing on through writing published within the last twenty years. Students read selected novels as well as short stories, poems, plays, and essays from the Norton Anthology of American Literature. Students closely analyze and discuss these literary works in order to attain an understanding of the content of the work, particularly its main themes. Students also further develop their writing about literature, moving beyond the five-paragraph essay to longer assessments of literary works.


In addition to reading, analyzing, and writing about literature, the course also focuses on the research paper process: developing a topic, writing a thesis, gathering resources, arranging outlines, writing drafts, and editing drafts. Finally, vocabulary is studied in order to prepare students for the SAT.

Objectives


Students will:

A. Demonstrate the ability to write for a clear, unified, and coherent analytical purpose

B. Demonstrate an understanding of the writing process, which includes prewriting, drafting, revising, and editing, as well as the rules and regulations of the MLA style

C. Summarize effectively and accurately ideas from other sources

D. Demonstrate the ability to integrate ideas from other sources into their own analysis with proper MLA in-text citations

E. Demonstrate the ability to read, comprehend, and analyze literature

F. Demonstrate the ability to engage in critical discussions and debates about literature

Content


The readings in this course span the history of major American literature. Authors studied over the course of the academic year include John Smith, Thomas Jefferson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Edgar Allan Poe, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, F. Scott Fitzgerald, among others. The genres read include novels, short stories, poems, plays, and essays.


Coupled with the focus on reading, the course also focuses on writing. Students will build upon their previous experiences with writing five-paragraph essays and focus on creating longer, more in-depth analytical essays about literature and, also, about topics of their own choosing. Emphasis is equally placed between content and writing, between what is written in an essay and how it is written.

Methodology


The primary mode of learning is teacher directed lectures and class discussions. Teacher input involves asking questions to students about the symbols, themes, and motifs of the literature under discussion and then responding to questions posed by students. Students are encouraged to share their thoughts through discussion, personal responses, in-class essays, creative assignments, and group activities.
