The five-volume STUDENT’S ENCYCLOPEDIA OF GREAT AMERICAN WRITERS is the landmark reference to the greatest writers in American literature, written specifically for high school students and correlated to the NCTE standards. Featuring more than 180 of the authors taught most often in the high school curriculum, this comprehensive set contains alphabetical entries, from 2,000 to 20,000 words each, divided into sections on the author’s life and on the author’s major works. An additional section in each entry provides topics for discussion and writing, many of which refer to other writers or works, helping students make connections between texts (a key component of language arts standards).
