Question: Back to school time! Create a reading list for the imaginary English Lit class you'll be teaching this semester.
Answer: Okay, I've got to say, I'm really excited for today's question. Like, dancing around with fireworks excited...
I'm going to be a junior this year and I'm currently majoring in English Education, which means I'm only two years away from actually having an English class of my own! Hopefully I'll be teaching high school English and, believe me, I've thought A LOT about what books I would love to teach my students. If I could have the power to actually teach my students these books, I would love my job even more than I know I'm going to. I can't wait until graduation and I can finally have my own classroom! But until then, here are some books I'd absolutely love to have on my curriculum...

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

The Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
