What books should students have read by the end of Year 10?

4 Feb

I have a fantastic group of students in my Year 10 class.  Class participation levels are high and most students are trying their best to produce quality and detailed work.

After class, I was approached by some students asking for some book and short story recommendations.  I am in the process of compiling a list for them now.  Below are the inclusions on the list thus far:

  • Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austen)
  • The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian (Sherman Alexie)
  • The Outsiders (S. E. Hinton)
  • Fahrenheit 451 (Ray Bradbury)
  • Haroun and the Sea of Stories (Salman Rushdie)

Any other texts that I should be adding to the list?
