The list of 12 pc classes that are bizarre includes a class of history on the American Dream. Death of a Salesman is a story most of my age group read in high school, but maybe they don’t teach it there anymore. I don’t know all the texts, so this might not be a very good class.
However, my chair and a history prof are offering dual classes in history and English on the American Dream. They’re both liberals, but I would expect that the course is full of important literary information, at least. Grapes of Wrath is a good one of these…. Of course in literature it is usually the unfulfilled American Dream.
