    Student Workbook and Teacher's Edition

    Mastering Great Works of American Literature through Critical Thinking, Reading, Analysis, Writing, and Hands-on Activities

for grades 8-12 - Student Workbook and Teacher's Edition (2 separate volumes with over 250 pages each)

The Teacher's Edition contains everything in the Student Workbook including answers to all workbook questions and seven Vocabulary Tests with Answer Keys and five Literary Terms Tests with Answer Keys. (In the Teacher's Edition samples rendered in PDF below, we have given a sample from the Vocabulary Tests and the Literary Terms Tests without the answers.)

Read with the Best is a 34 week curriculum that includes literature, extensive vocabulary, critical reading, critical analysis, critical thinking, writing (including an MLA style research paper), and SAT/ACT preparation. It is an accompaniment to our award winning writing curriculum Write with the Best Volume 2. Write with the Best is used for all writing instruction in this literature curriculum except for writing a research paper.

The features that make this literature curriculum different from the others on the market are 1) It uses a college text book The Norton Anthology of American Literature as its reading text to not only prepare students for college but also to equip them to take two AP exams or CLEP exams and exempt freshman English in college. It was written using the AP and CLEP reviews as guides. 2) It teaches hundreds of SAT/ACT vocabulary words and literary terms now found on the critical reading portions of these tests, as well as the 25 minute SAT essay and other expository writing. 3) It exposes students to 27 early American literature authors and the historical time periods they lived in. 4) It includes hands-on activities that appeal to all learning styles and other activities that bring the passages to life for these high school students. 5) It includes mainly whole books and whole works instead of small excerpts. 6) It uses literature that teaches, inspires and encourages the students to make critical and moral judgments. 7) It was written by a high school English and literature teacher of 30 years and a home school mother of 20 years. 8) Students who complete the course receive 2 and high school credits. Read with the Best- the Student Workbook and Teacher's Edition come in soft-cover. (The target date for the release of Read with the Best - American Literature II: 1860-1960 is January 2014. Read with the Best - British Literature is targeted for June 2014. Read with the Best - World Literature is targeted for release in 2015.)
