Information for lesson "American Literature AP/CLEP/CCE "
Description: The American Literature covers material that is usually taught in a semester survey course (or the equivalent) at the college level. It deals with the prose and poetry written in the United States from colonial times to the present. It is primarily a test of knowledge about literary works — their content, their background, and their authors — but also an ability to interpret poetry, fiction, and nonfiction prose, as well as a familiarity with the terminology used by literary critics and historians. Emphasizes fiction and poetry and deals to a lesser degree with the essay, drama, and autobiography. In both coverage and approach, the course resembles the chronologically organized survey of American literature offered by many colleges. It assumes that candidates have read widely and developed an appreciation of American literature, know the basic literary periods, and have a sense of the historical development of American literature. Explore literary works from several different genres and periods -Learn to read critically as you -Experience great literary works -Interpret those texts -Evaluate their quality and artistic achievement
