Teaching a Literary Classic

Jeanette Whittaker

The American Christian literature course is designed to build a love and appreciation for reading complete works of literature, cause the students to deepen their reasoning skills, encourage imagination, and cultivate good writing skills. These goals are accomplished by effectively presenting the background of the book and the author and emphasizing the literary elements – setting, characterization, plot, theme, and style. Specific direction will be given for class notes and daily work from a variety of classics, for various grade levels.
