Each chapter has five lessons with daily concept-building exercises, warm-up questions, and guided readings The final lesson of the week includes the weekly exam, as well as essays developed through the course of that week’s study, chosen by the educator and student to personalize the coursework for the individual learner.

Intense but Worthy
Review by Mary
This college level-esque course is not for the faint of heart, but if your child loves British Lit, is a voracious reader and rises to a challenge, this is a perfect fit. I am impressed with the depth of thinking the assignment questions evoke. A wonderful curriculum for those dedicated to learning.
Looks awesome!
Review by Heather
My daughter completed American Literature this year and has loved it. Both of my high schoolers, my son and daughter, are going to be completing this course during the next school year. The book choices look interesting. They are excited about it!
Good, but a lot of reading!
Review by Cara
This is full of good info, and selections of books. There is also a huge list of books that the guide says the child needs to have read all of those in full before they cover that chapter from the Literature book. (You buy them or rent or listen to audio etc.) One thing that I was surprised to find was that this does NOT have a 180 daily lesson guide. Disappointed with that. Hoping my child will enjoy this class and not be overwhelmed. :)

Well rounded literature course
Review by Andrea
As an English Lit major in college I was super excited to find this curriculum for my 11th grader. I love the way it covers actual books, not just excerpts. I feel that it teachers the student how to analyze a piece of literature and prepares them for college level courses. Highly recommend this course.
Lots of Reading
Review by Jennifer
I bought this because I was excited about the literature and history paralleling each other. The history looked interesting, but the literature had a huge list of books to read. Our library isn’t very big so I’d have had to buy the entire book list. We decided to go with something else. But if you have a great library and love to read a lot of books, this would be a fantastic program.
