The Glencoe Reader Course 6 (American Literature) Workbook

 
78

CAVEAT: The quality of the scan leaves a bit to be desired (slightly blurry and unclean in places), but all of the content is readable.

The Glencoe Reader is a special kind of book - one you can actually interact with and make your own. Go ahead. Circle, underline, or highlight parts of a selection that grab your attention or that are hard to understand. Jot down words you want to remember. Fill the margins with your own thoughts and questions. You can mark up this reader in a way that works for you - a way that helps you understand and remember what you read.
