American Literature | 0.5 credit | ACCN LTH5130
This American literature course is designed to engage students in understanding and appreciating representative literary works from the various periods of the American experience. The American temperament, the search for values, and succeeding waves of immigrant groups to the American literary tradition provide possible thematic continuity for the course. Focus is on personal, interpretive, and critical responses to this literature. Writing and oral communication support students’ exposure to and experience of the selected works.
