*At the pre-1A level as well as in 1A, we recommend that non-fiction be used; that if fiction or
autobiographical works are assigned, they be analyzed for issues and themes connected to other
readings in the course rather than for literary aspects; that a combination of book-length works and
short essays be used to provide a variety of models.
