My 'mailbox' - my bookbag, actually - is brim-full of potential novels for my tenth grade class, on loan from our school book room. I've read them all before, of course, but this weekend and next are devoted to re-reading each one as I confirm my choices for next semester.
Take a look at my potential picks:
Rather a dark lot, no? But boasting plenty to compel and to question...
Do you recall reading these in high school or thereafter? Which ones stuck with you and which meandered off into some distant corner of your memory?
And, just out of curiosity, which of these novels would you choose to (re)read yourself?
If you could read only one of these with a group of teens right now, which one of these books would you recommend?
Of course, I harbor my own predilections about which are the most teachable and the best fits for my students' needs, but I'm also quite curious about your views... Who knows, I might just be swayed if you champion one of these venerable tomes!
