Hello there, and I will be the new Subject Leader of English, Media and Film after the Easter holidays, and I haven't the foggiest idea on what novel I should teach my lower ability set of year 10 English. Also, with this management this also includes all the rest of the teachers who have to teach set 4 & 5 English. I was thinking of "The Kite Runner". I've haven't read this book before, has anyone else? The reason why I have no idea on what to teach them is because I haven't taught year 10 set 4, nor 5 in a couple of years *excluding this one). I do not want to teach Of Mice & Men, because to be quite frank, I am sick-to-death of reading that novel. I can't stand it!!! You have no idea how horrible I find it! I know that may be bad for an English teacher, but I've been teaching that novel for 8 years STRAIGHT! And as you can possibly imagine, I can't be bothered to teach it aha! So does anyone have some good suggestions that I can take on board to what novels from Different Cultures I could read and teach to my year 10's, set 4 & 5? Thank you in advance.
