SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate to Advanced
Journeys through American Literature introduces students to the best of modern American literature while enhancing their reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. The new volume focuses on 19th and 20th century American prose and poetry, and includes a section taken from The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros.
Both texts help students formulate and express their own preferences and opinions about a variety of literary works. The exercises and activities are intended to improve language skills and critical-thinking skills, with the focus on the student's response to the reading.
Each instructor's manual includes lesson plans and answer keys among other helpful material.
