American Literature for Distance Learning

In this distance learning course, students read chronologically through American literature from the 1600s to the present, focusing on four major literary periods: early American, Romantic, Realistic, and Modern. Reading a variety of authors, students note the writers' influence on society as well as society's influence on them. Students develop an appreciation of American literature by seeing the fundamental elements of literature illustrated in specific works. The course builds on instruction from previous years to demonstrate the development of literature.

About the Instructors

Miss Jennifer Martini, BS, MA

Miss Jennifer Martini, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMiss Martini thoroughly enjoys reading and is excited about the opportunity to teach American literature and to share her love for the subject. "Ever since the fourth grade, I’ve never been more than a stone’s throw away from a book. During high school, my English teacher channeled my love for reading into a more disciplined approach which allowed me to glean much more from my reading. My goal for my students is that, even if they do not ‘love’ reading, they be able to develop the skills necessary to understand and explain the literature for themselves. These skills will allow them to develop a discerning eye toward whatever material they read. More importantly, my desire is that they apply these literature skills to their own personal Bible study. The Word of God can come alive to them in ways that they might not have experienced before taking this class. Having just completed the study of the elements of literature, it is now time that they begin to understand what the literature is saying and the purpose the authors had for their writings."
