You can see an annotated listing of each of the introductory and reference chapters at the “What is included in Excellence in Literature” post.

You and your student will have the print book for reference and evaluation, but the student will be able to view the modules online, and click links (on most computers) to the context resources, rather than typing out the URLs.
