11th Grade-Implications of Literature PIONEER LEVEL
Pioneer Level–Grade 11
The Pioneer Level explores American literature in the form of short stories, speeches, poetry, folklore, and much more. The Pioneer Level draws from familiar authors and speakers such as Martin Luther King Jr., Nathaniel Hawthorne, Emily Dickinson, Frederick Douglass, and Charles Lindbergh, along with numerous less familiar sources. Beginning with a quick 16-page review of key historical moments and influences over the last 500 years in America, the Pioneer Level enables readers to gain a deeper understanding of the impact and context history has provided to the American literature we read today. The activities in the Pioneer Level encourage high-school students to sharpen the skills needed for standardized tests and proficiency examinations, especially the clarity of written expression so critical in the newly-formatted SAT examinations.
