Course Description


Let’s travel American’s “purple mountain majesties” as we read from a selection of American authors – such as Mark Twain, Edgar Allan Poe, Steinbeck, Pearl S. Buck – doesn’t get any better than this!!

We will also explore various cultural customs and influences of our own country, brought here by the immigrants of 200+ years ago.

Who invented ice cream??? (I dunno, but I’m glad they did!!) 

This is rich!!!


Textbooks and other classroom materials are supplied by the teacher out of the Materials fee. These are purchased at the best possible value. Students are encouraged to keep their books at the end of each semester in order to start building their own personal library.

All Literature books are chosen from the Georgia Department of Education list of books for high school graduation and college-bound students. Great consideration is taken when making choices for my students.
