  12. 12. Conclusion Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] You now have a prior knowledge base to use as we enter into our study of American Literature. One question you might be asking yourself is, “Why are we studying American History in and English Class?” The answer is quite simple; our literature comes within the time we live, and so many times it mirrors what the society is experiencing. To understand the thought processes of the people of any given time period, you must first understand the time in which they lived. You now have a base for that understanding to begin!
