While I don't teach literature for our Logic school, I am helping with an overhaul of our Logic literature curriculum. What books do you teach to your Logic School students? Right now we have staples like Lord of the Flies and Tom Sawyer that work well for this age group. What books have worked for you, and which ones haven't?
To Kill a Mocking Bird is a great one. What about short-stories like Ransom of Red Chief?
I would be interested in some ideas of quick books or other short stories for a range of homeschool co-op kids that meet once a week for an hour. I think they want to be able to read the book in a week? That is why I thought of short stories. At this age, to use "quick books" I think of, would probably make them feel like they are reading "kiddie" books. So I am trying to think of meaty stories, but that are still quick to read?
