Today’s topic is: Back to School time! Create a reading list for the imaginary English Lit class you’ll be teaching this semester.
If I’m an English Literature teacher, I’m going to assume I’m a college professor. The goal of most literature classes vary, but they usually cover classic stories. In my English literature class, most of the featured stories were short stories, actually. I was rather surprised. If I was the professor, I would want my students to read a variety of reading styles that were excellent examples of their genre. I would probably include:
The Taming of the Shrew(my personal favorite Shakespeare play)
Of course, since most students don’t even read the books in class, they probably wouldn’t realize they were missing out on amazing literature. However, if more teachers chose interesting books for their students to read, perhaps reading wouldn’t be such a chore. If all students had to read were boring classics like on the 100 “Best” Novels of the 20th Century that Time Magazine put out, it’s no wonder that no one likes literature class.
What do you think of my choices? Anything you would add/take away?
