THE 11TH-GRADE COURSE OF STUDY IN AMERICAN LITERATURE PRESENTED IN THE STUDENT PACKET FOR THE NEBRASKA ENGLISH CURRICULUM BEGINS WITH A UNIT ENTITLED "INDIVIDUALISM AND IDEALISM" IN WHICH STUDENTS ANALYZE SPIRITUAL AUTOBIOGRAPHIES BY EMERSON, THOREAU, WHITMAN, AND DICKINSON. NEXT, THE THEME OF SIN AND LONELINESS AS IT LIMITS INDIVIDUALISM IS EXPLORED IN "THE SCARLET LETTER,""BILLY BUDD,""THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN," AND "THE UNVANQUISHED.""BABBITT,""THE GREAT GATSBY," AND "THE WASTELAND" PROVIDE THE BASIS FOR A CONSIDERATION OF SATIRE WHICH EXPOSES MATERIALISM AND CONFORMITY. CATHER AND FROST ARE STUDIED IN "MY ANTONIA,""THE WITCH OF COOS," AND "NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY" AS WRITERS WHO SEARCH FOR A FORM INTRINSIC IN THEIR SUBJECTS.
