Today’s question: If you were a high school English teacher, what five books would you put on your reading list?
This question is kind of a hard one for me. I don’t feel like I read enough books that have a deeper meaning and such that can be discussed and taught in a classroom setting. I am also just not very good at picking things and making choices. Other than the good ones that are already being used like To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee .I think some newer works such start to be incorporated in the educational systems that cover more current topics. I guess one that I think would be Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. That is the only one I can think of by name. I know there are some important books about bullying and LGBT matters that I think would be good to start incorporating into high school.
Does anyone have any good ideas (since I am not good at it and failed answering the question)? What books would you put on the reading list?
