Our students have to read some of the very best works of literature for their English classes. It’s hard not to feel a little jealous. While some students may not quite appreciate the works they are assigned, as teachers, we know one day they’ll understand.
Wait. Were you like them? Did you fully appreciate and experience what those books had to offer when you were in school?
Just in case, we’ve complied a list of five novels we suggest all educators read again as adults. You’ll have a brand new perspective on the themes and characters, and even be able to engage your current students in a literary dialogue.
