Literature and the American Story

In this academy students will engage in a careful reading of important works of American literature. Along with short stories by American authors, the great texts for this academy will include works like Frederick Douglass’ Narrative, Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn, or Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird. 

Students will see how American authors aim to teach us important things about America – its principles, its history, its character, and its aspirations.
