Top Ten Books We Thinks Should Be Taught in Schools
I made a list to range from middle school through high school.
1. The Hunger Games
2. Pride & Prejudice
3. Tuesdays With Morrie
4. The Lord of the Rings
5. The Book Thief
6. Little Women
7. The Help
8. Brave New World
9. To Kill a Mockingbird
10. Harry Potter 1-7
What do you think should be taught in school?
Great list! I would be so thrilled if they taught LOTR when I was in high school xD
Anniversary of Tolkien’s death is today 😦
This is a great list! I haven’t read all of these, but even the ones I haven’t I think could be good for a curriculum.
I SO wish Little Women had been taught in school. I would’ve loved reading it back then. As it is, I feel deprived that I didn’t discover it until I was an adult.
I love that book- wish I had read it in HS
What a great choice of books – they have my vote
Love these choices! I would have been thrilled to read Little Women in school, since I’d already read it approx. 1000 times. :p
I think I need to make YOUR list my required reading list. The Book Thief and Brave New World have been in my TBR pile for far too long.
I am doing a read along of The Book Thief this month if you have any interest!
Where the Red Fern Grows! It’s my favorite book of all time and it covers the importance of pets, hard work, family, pursuing a dream, bullies, and more 🙂
Great list! I had a Mitch Albom book on my list as well!
Great list – though I can hear the groans coming from the boys (and a few of the girls) when they heft the Tolkien. 🙂
