Excellence in Literature Complete Curriculum Print and eBook together
BEST VALUE! The Complete Curriculum print and ebook together for $199 + $5.95 shipping (just $10 per level more than the print version alone).
This print and ebook set allows you to use the print volume for planning and reference (especially the frequently accessed chapters on “How to Read a Book,” “How to Write an Essay,” and “Discerning Worldview through Literary Periods,” and “Formats and Models”), while allowing your student the convenience of clicking links to context resources (on most computers), rather than typing them in.
Want to change the order of Excellence in Literature
modules to match your history sequence?
You can do it!
Now you can get all the study guides in one big binder: Excellence in Literature Complete Curriculum: Literature and Writing for Grades 8-12, a self-directed, college prep English curriculum. During five years of study you will cover (complete descriptions of each guide’s contents can be found at the individual book page):
- Introduction to Literature
- Literature and Composition
- American Literature
- British Literature
- World Literature
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.
There are nine study modules in each level. These outline readings and a week-by-week lesson plan for each of the classic works being studied. In addition, you will find reference resources, including instructions for evaluation, reproducible rubric and assignment sheets, and more. A Formats and Models chapter provides detailed instructions for each type of paper, along with a student-written model so parents and students can see exactly what is expected.
You can see an annotated listing of each of the introductory and reference chapters at the “What is included in Excellence in Literature” post.
With the binder 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.”
