Read MoreA syllabus written for every school child, a course for every adult, is no longer necessary.
It has become the default syllabus at the nation’s most selective colleges and universities, and the American Literature program is no exception.
With the aid of the World Literature Association, the syllabus of the American Literacy Initiative, and a host of other resources, students of all ages and backgrounds can now take their college-level reading and writing skills to the next level.
The American Literature Program is the culmination of years of research, analysis, and development by the World Literacy Alliance, the American Council of Learned Societies, and American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
The World Literature Alliance is a nonprofit organization of scholars, teachers, and students dedicated to expanding literacy and creating new modes of literacy for a more peaceful and prosperous world.
The American Council for Learned Society is a not-for-profit, nonprofit organization that provides support for the American Library Association and the Association for Education in Literature, Culture, and Art.
The syllabus is based on the best-selling books of the past century and is a guide for students, teachers and parents alike.
It is the first of its kind for the College Board, the educational testing and certification company that has been testing and certifying more than 1.2 billion students since 1999.
“We have a very rich, diverse, and highly diverse curriculum,” said the World Language Association’s James Haggards, who is the president of the program.
“We’ve put together a syllabus that really provides a great foundation for students to develop their writing and reading skills and develop their understanding of literature.”
Students can read a selection of texts, including classic classics, to help them develop their vocabulary, to write well in a class, or to get a taste of what it is like to read a classic work.
The reading and comprehension portion of the syllabi is based around a list of books that are recommended by the American Academy for Literature and the Arts.
The students who choose to take this reading and reading comprehension course will get an overall grade of 100.
Students who take the American Language and Literature syllabus will receive a grade of 70.
“There are lots of really great books in the world, but there are so many of them that we’re trying to teach them in this syllabus,” said Haggs.
“What we want to emphasize is the importance of learning to be critical and not just be able to read.
What we want students to see is the way literature works in the lives of the people who write it,” he added.
“What we’ve been doing is teaching them to be interested in writing, but to understand it in a way that’s not reductive and is not just an academic exercise.”
Haggs said the syllabis will be available through the college admissions process beginning in the fall.
“The American Library and the National Library of Medicine have already been very helpful to us,” he said.
“It’s not a complicated thing, and it’s very easy to use.
The college admissions office has been really helpful.
It’s a really easy, short process.
We can’t wait to get started.”
