LIT 263 - Early American Voices

4 Credit(s)
Contrary to some stereotypes, the area that became the United States yielded a rich and diverse literature before white settlement. This course surveys early Native American voices as well as the literature of explorers, slaves, and colonists. It surveys, too, changes in patterns of literary imitation, as well as theme and style, from the colonial period through the early decades of U.S. independence. A variety of teaching and learning practices are included in this course: e.g., traditional lecture, oral readings, group discussions, creative and/or analytical writing, listening activities, oral and/or dramatic presentations, visits with authors, interviews, internet and off-campus activities, research practice, etc.
