Bad On Paper

Sep 14, 2022

This week we’re excited to interview two English teachers about what books are taught in High School English classes right now. We chat about what books are in their current curriculum, how books get chosen, what books students get excited about, and what books outside the curriculum are popular with high school students right now. 


Mary’s Books: The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Jane Austen, Emily Dickenson, Walt Whitman, Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde, Behold The Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue, and Antigone by Sophocles.


Caroline’s Books: Romeo & Juliet by William Shakespeare, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie, The Boy Who Dared by Susan Campbell Bartoletti, A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, The Hunger Games by Susan Collins, and Harrison Burgeron by Kurt Vonnegut.
