select their favorite, coolest, or most intellectual books, they just use the one they are currently reading. This is the book I'm reading right now--- Title: Lit Up: One Reporter. Three Schools. Twenty-Four Books that Can Change Lives. by David Denby Book Beginnings:
The First Days of English 10G: A teacher was speaking. "As we develop a community here, and I see you thinking about a text, your voice is as important as my voice. What you say is as important as what I say."
The discussion turned to happiness. The people in Huxley's new world are drugged and sated. But is it real? Can there be such a thing as false happiness? "Leonardo," Mr. Leon said, "would you rather be unhappy or falsely happy?"
Comment: I WISH I had had a good English lit class. I hope to learn a ton from this book.
