OOPS–Your Timelines are NOT Due Tomorrow :) I had assigned them to be Due January 23!!! So make them even better :)

Semester Final — American Literature Timeline (DUE January 23)

I need you to make a timeline for what we have studied so far this year. It needs to include each authors date of birth and death, as well as when the main works that we have read in class were published. That will help you put all this in perspective. Also put 4-5 significant historical dates on the timeline–things like American Revolution begins, American Revolution ends, when the presidents were elected, and when the Civil War began. Easy Peasy. It needs to be big enough for me to read it. So I would suggest using a big poster board or taping about 3 sheets of white computer paper together. Color also helps the brain to process and store information so you will get a higher grade if you use color on your timeline. Also feel free to glue pictures onto the timeline too. Just don’t let them get in the way.

Authors to include:

  • Anne Bradstreet
  • Nathaniel Hawthorne
  • Jonathan Edwards
  • Phyllis Wheatley
  • Thomas Paine
  • Edgar Allan Poe
  • Frederick Douglass
  • Harriet Beecher Stowe
  • Emily Dickinson
  • Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
  • Walt Whitman
  • Washington Irving
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • Henry David Thoreau
