High School Reading

Reginald Said:

What is the name of this book I read for high school summer reading?

We Answered:

Not sure about the book, but the movie version was called Same Time, Next Year.

I thought it was a play by Bernard Slade. They usually met every year but the story jumps ahead by larger gaps. Sometimes they missed a few years, like one would come but the other couldn't or vice versa.

It sounds really similar to 6 Rms Riv Vu. Same Time, Next Year's plot has A man and woman meet by chance at a romantic inn over dinner. Both married to others, end up in the same bed the next morning questioning how it happened. They agree to meet on the same weekend each year. The two are seen changing, years apart, always in the same room in different scenes. Each usually appears on schedule, but as time goes on each has some personal crisis that the other helps them through, often without both of them understanding what is going on.

Tim Said:

how to find high school required reading lists on internet?

We Answered:

It varies depending on the level of your Literature class. For example, British Literature is different than Honors British Literature. Also, you are contradicting yourself saying "i dont want your reading lists" and "just give me suggestions". Summer reading books are also required reading books in school.

Anyways, a few books I had to read (That i can remember) were:

9th grade Lit:
-The Odyssey

Honors British Literature:
-Sisterhood of Traveling Pants
-All Creatures Great and Small
-Lord of the Flies

Honors American Literature:
-The Adventures of Huckleberry Fin
-The Grapes of Wrath
-Raisin in the Sun
-The Scarlet Letter
-The Great Gaxby
-The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail
-The Secret Life of Bees

I'm still a junior, so i'm not sure what the Seniors read. The only book i remember seeing that they read are, Joy Luck Club and Confucius Lives Next Door, and Fast Food nation.

Francis Said:

What was your favorite high school assigned reading?

We Answered:

'Of Mice And Men' was great!

My favorite was probably 'Animal Farm'.

Veronica Said:

Is the book Anna Karenina often read in high school? I was thinking of reading it?

We Answered:

It's often on the HS assigned reading list, but not always. I think if you want to read it, you should so even if it's assigned in HS later. You'll be so much ahead of your classmates and it won't take you as long reading it the second time.

Alex Said:

Teachers- Can you recommend a cheap reading program for high school student who needs to increase levels?

We Answered:

I agree that Be a Better Reader can be good. They are leveled. Others that I like come from Jamestown books -- especially the timed readings. Even those written for very low readers show that they have an older student in mind. The Wild Side books are also very fun from the same publisher.

This publisher will also send you a perusal copy before you decide to buy.

Stanley Said:

Can any1 recommend a book by an american author at the high school reading level?

We Answered:

twilight - stephenie meyer - Now this is going to sound bad but it's actually amazing and they're making it into a movie. It's about a girl who moves from Arizona to the small rainy town of Forks, WA. She meets this beautiful but bizarre boy who turns out to be a vampire. The whole time he's telling her he's too dangerous but they fall in love (now I know it sounds lame, I wouldn't read it at first) but it's an amazing romance and it's addicting. Give it a try, it's fantasy for those who don't like fantsasy and those who do.

Uglies - Scott Westerfeld - Tally lives in a place where at 16 you get comsmetic surgery and move to the "pretties" town. Some of her friends realize the shallowness of the practice and try to find a new way of life.

Terrance Said:

Do you think High School turns people off from wanting to read? Most the reading material is so boring?

We Answered:

I think kids should have developed the reading habit well before high school. I also strongly agree with Rachelle that parents should start reading to their children as early as possible. Even then, I know from experience how frustrating it is when the things you like to read (or want to learn) aren't the things being taught.

On the other hand, I find it very disappointing when high school or college students post questions about books that I read for fun and clearly want someone to help them avoid actually reading this or that book. In many cases it's plain that the teacher or someone farther up in the system has chosen a book that he or she thinks the students will actually enjoy, and they're still trying to find someone to do it for them.

Finally, I think one problem is that many high school students lack the maturity to get enough out of literary classics to enjoy them.
