Quick poll of our readers who teach English, or who work with people who do:
When I was in high school, we read 9-10 books a year, with a paper on each one. I’m given to understand that the number of books has either been drastically reduced, even in honors classes, or that we were reading some insane number of books even for the time.
How many books (and if you know, what lengths?) are taught each year to English classes at your school?
This is just for my own curiosity, though it may end up in a blog post in the near future (before Joanne gets back and takes away all my toys).
