McDougal Littell Literature (World Literature) Student Textbook (2008)


Beginning with the striking covers, 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. 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.
