There are several steps you could do
1) 1-3 min. Try to activate the learner’s background and prior knowledge of American literature with familiar images, quotes, or illustrations of many different kinds of American literature.
2) 2-3 min. Establish goals and objectives, along with an essential question.
3) 3-4 min Provide background and context for an activity for them to do.utilizing whatever American literature sources they have available.
4) 8-10 min Have them perform an activity with help from you.
5) 8-10 min Have them perform an activity with no assistance from you.
6) 5 8 min. Provide them with an interesting assessment to gauge their learning.
7) 1-2 min Reflect on what they have learned and its significance and meaning in their daily lives.
That should be 28-40 min of activity depending on the needs of the class.

Check out the UDL Guidelines. It's a framework where student engagement is at the forefront, and it makes a big difference in instruction. Start by examining the Guidelines, and then go from there. When I adopted the framework 5 years ago, my students became so much more invested in their learning.
