Honors Texts for American Literature

Honors Texts for American Literature (E3)

American Literature: Excellence in Literature: English 3

The Honors Track for American Literature is outlined in the study guide, and involves additional reading and writing and an optional exam. Another way you can use the honors texts is if you’ve already read a focus text for a module, you may substitute an honors text.

Visit Everyday Education to learn more and purchase American Literature. You’ll also find pages of widgets for the focus texts and honors texts there.

NEW! Add the ebook to your purchase for only $15 more per level.

You and your student will have the print book for reference and evaluation, but the student will be able to view the modules online, and click links (on most computers) to the context resources, rather than typing out the URLs.
