Course Overview

This American Literature course explores how the United States developed its shape and character throughout the 19th century by way of the movement called the Westward Expansion. By reading and reflecting on the words, artwork, and novels that contain their stories, students will gain an understanding of the authentic experiences and perspectives of those who immigrated to the region, those whose families had lived on the land for generations, and those whose ancestors had been there for millennia. Students will develop insight into how people influence the land and how the land influences people.

Course Length: One Semester

Grade Level: 11, 12
