Feature and Follow (9)

Here’s this week’s question: Back to school. Create a reading list for the imaginary English Lit class you’ll be teaching this semester.

Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The purpose is to meet new people and gain more followers in the book blogging community.

But more the fact that every book was a 'classic', with big wordy sentences, and overly long descriptive paragraphs that went way over my head (especially since I had reading difficulties.

So if I was to choose a mix of books to teach high-school kids, I would choose slightly more modern contemporary books, that hopefully would keep them fully absorbed while also teaching them about themes, character development, and literary metaphors. My choices would be:

  6. Nice list! I have Thirteen Reasons Why on my list too - it is absolutely amazing. I've see a lot of lists with classics, so I like that you have a more modern novels that would get a majority of students reading.
