Want to change the order of Excellence in Literature
modules to match your history sequence?

You can do it!

Now you can get all the study guides in one volume! Excellence in Literature Complete Curriculum eBook: Literature and Writing for Grades 8-12, is a self-directed, college-prep English curriculum. During five years of study you will cover (complete descriptions of each guide's contents can be found at the individual book page):

It's easy to customize high school English by mixing and matching modules. Although the five levels of Excellence in Literature graduate in difficulty, based on the complexity of literature and assignments, there is a great deal of flexibility. Each module throughout the curriculum stands alone, so it is easy to select literature to coordinate with history studies.

With this format, you can custom-select modules to fit your needs. The pages are thoughtfully laid out so that each module begins on a right-hand page, so that you can pull them out and create custom study paths without accidentally leaving a page behind.

"Students completing these courses should be miles ahead of most of their high school contemporaries in their ability to read and analyze literature at a sophisticated level. 

The challenging writing assignments also promise to develop student skills in composition to a high level."

From a detailed review by Cathy Duffy


Why choose the ebook format for Excellence in Literature Complete Curriculum eBook?

Many of the context resources in each module are links to online articles or videos. Having the ebook allows your student to click links instead typing them in.

Ideally, the chapters on "How to Read a Book," "How to Write an Essay," and "Discerning Worldview through Literary Periods,"as well as the "Formats and Models" chapter would be accessible in print, because those are items that will be referred to quite regularly.

It is also very helpful if the parent or teacher has a print copy of the book for reference and access. To make this possible, we offer a steep discount on the ebook when you purchase the print version along with it.

Print Plus eBook learning advantages:

  • Printed guide is best for frequently referenced instructional articles and models
  • eBook add-on can be one more than one device for use by others in the family
  • eBook add-on allows students to click context resources links on most computers, rather than type in URLs (any link updates will be listed on the Excellence in Literature resource site in the Curriculum User Content)
  • Extra copies of reproducible forms can be easily printed from the add-on

The best deal is the set! The Complete Curriculum in a binder is $149 + $5.95 shipping. You may purchase the print and ebook together for $199 + $5.95 shipping (just $10 per level more).

This allows you to use the print volume for planning and reference (especially the frequently accessed chapters on "How to Read a Book," "How to Write an Essay," and "Discerning Worldview through Literary Periods," and "Formats and Models"), while allowing your student the convenience of clicking links to context resources (on most computers), rather than typing them in.
