American Literature: Engagement and Diversity

Help me give my students the opportunity to read diverse works. The copies of Maus, Born a Crime, and They Called Us Enemy will be used to engage students in reading that is of high interest. Thank you!

My Project

Thank you for taking the time to look at this project. It is my hope to bring interesting texts to my students. These texts will be used in courses that teach American Literature.

My students have vocalized that they enjoy reading works that are relevant to their lives and that engage them in lessons of diversity.

I believe that the Maus, Born a Crime, and They Called Us Enemy are three texts that will engage students. These books will be used alongside classic literature to emphasize themes found in American Literature.
