An ideal introduction to a diverse mix of genres and styles
With Exploring Literature, students begin to appreciate a wider scope of literary works. The newly updated and expanded text includes a full range of selections to draw readers in—from fables, myths, tall tales, and legends to short stories, nonfiction, poetry, and drama. Students experience the works of classic and contemporary authors, including Mark Twain, Gwendolyn Brooks, W. W. Jacobs, Shakespeare, Yoshiko Uchida, and other respected American and international authors. New authors featured in this edition are Barack Obama and Natasha Trethewey.
Now even more visually appealing, the revised Exploring Literature text focuses students’ attention. In addition, the Teacher’s Edition offers numerous ELL activities and instructions for integrating graphic organizers into the lessons. Many activities for increasing learning are also provided on the Teacher’s Resource Library.
