How many works of literature should an average high school English class be expected to cover in one semester and/or one school year?
I went to a pretty scrappy high school; I remember reading one novel each semester and then just a bunch of short stories or novel excerpts out of our textbook. This was from 2002–06 and I wasn’t in an honors class.
What was your experience? Was it too much or too little? Also, if you’re working in education right now, what do you think is an appropriate amount for your students?
