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."

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.
