5 Course Introduction English III, First Semester Welcome to English 3A! This course is a survey of the changes that took place in American literature from America’s beginnings until the mid-1800s. It is designed to foster an understanding or an appreciation for quality American literature. Have you ever asked yourself any of the following questions? Is man born bad or good? Does God exist? If so, what is His role in society? Should man listen to his head, his heart, or his instincts? How does nature relate to man? What is death like? These and other questions are the basis for the literature you will read for this course. We will delve into a wide variety of works, including journal entries, speeches, short stories, poems, and plays. In particular, we will stress the correlation between historical events and literary works. In conjunction with our study of literature, we will focus on critical thinking and effective communication. Certainly, we will not forget the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, which apply to all standardized tests. This course should be an enriching experience for you and should help you sharpen your reading and writing skills. It is my hope that you will enjoy learning how the American way of thinking about man, God, nature, society, and death has changed through the years.
