"Classics" Book Club
Before you finish high school…You should read…
(or should you?)
As we prepare for the regents, we will also be reading a classic text in book clubs. We are continuing to question what we read, thinking about it’s place on the canon of high school literature. These texts are the types of literature that may appear on part three of the regents, so they will help us practice discerning and communicating our discernment of this type of text.
- What is the American "canon" and should we pay attention to it?
- What do American "Classics" say about what American Society Values?
- What central ideas do we discern in our classic texts?
- What literary techniques/devices does the author use to communicate the central ideas?
