# Survey of American Literature: Eng 253

Unit 4 begins with the struggle for American independence and ends with issues of domestic liberty.  Students will read seminal works by Paine and Jefferson, engage in self-analysis with Franklin as their model, and move into the sphere of sentimental fiction with Susanna Rowson's "Charlotte Temple."  There are several sample assignments and discussion questions as well as quizzes and suggestions for group work.
