McDougal Littell Literature (British Literature), Grade 12 Student Textbook (2008)


McDougal Littell Literature invites students to explore the world of art, literature, and life’s big questions. The unique organization around clusters of standards allows for the teaching of major literary concepts across genre. Standards that belong together are taught together. Students analyze fiction, nonfiction, poetry, drama, and media across clusters of standards. Special features support visual and media literacy, along with research strategies.
Art in the program supports learning. A full-page of fine art or photography at the beginning of every selection builds background, sets cultural context, and supports literary study—without giving away the ending. Every level includes an entire unit devoted to research.
