Through a broad range of stories, poetry, and novels, this course encourages students to explore the universality of human experience, while also considering how different genres and literary themes reflect North American culture through history. The first half of the course focuses on American literature, including two novels, To Kill a Mockingbird and My Antonia. In the second half we move north of the 49th parallel to explore Canadian literature, including the novels Never Cry Wolf and Forbidden City. As students will come to understand, the study of American and Canadian literature is simply another means to a better understanding of these two countries, their character, and how Christians can seek to live godly lives in North American society.
North American Literature is a full year ONE credit course typically done by students in Grade 11 or 12.
