As its home page states, this site "provides professional development and classroom materials to enhance the study of American Literature in its cultural context." Sixteen units organize American literature in a new way that smoothly integrates the works of canonical and non-canonical authors. There are sixteen 30-minute videos which may be viewed on demand or purchased in DVD or VHS form, and each unit has an Instructor's Guide which may be viewed online, downloaded as a .PDF file, or obtained in print form. The Study Guide material intended for students is also available in print form or online, and there is an extensive and easily searchable Archive section that supplies photographs, sound files, and a rich variety of other illustrative material. A slide show tool allows students or teachers to create online slide shows using the Archive materials. The sixteen videos feature major authors and critics discussing the works covered. Interesting creative response and problem-based learning assignments are included for each unit. The materials are designed to coordinate with and support the Norton Anthology of American Literature, but they can be used with other texts as well.
