I'd remove all of it. I'd still allow for grammar and creative writing though.

Conformation. It's needed in the Western world. But let's not go domestic terrorist too much here.

It is needed like you say, but we literally learn all that we need by 8th grade. Everything onward in the US is just uneeded analysis. They haven't even taught us all that we needed and I'm in the top 1% of schools in the US. Everything has to be learnt outside of school in terms of grammar. But the 9-12th grade english of the US isn't needed.

Idk, it's rather sad to learn about Chinese poets and literary works and go to school and find there's nothing of the sort being taught there.

You want to learn that then it should be in a separate subject and lumped into "English". Probably called literary history and analysis.

GOOD GOD.Bam, I think you're also in the US with us if I'm correct. We really don't need that. As Tangster said, I'd destroy all of it and allow creative writing and grammar. Put all of the lit that has historical significance like the muck raker's things and put them in history for a touch. Just to know about the book and be exposed.

Nope, I'm in Canada. We haven't been exposed to ANY of the 17-18th century literature in high school. Just Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe (who just died) and Fifth Business by Robertson Davies.

I dunno, crossdressing is actually pretty fun...at least when your parents aren't around.

As long as you guys are exposed to grammar, that's good enough. Trust me. You don't want to have any of this.

 

 

My dad just yelled. He sounded like Hitler. It scared me.

We had an extensive library. I tended to read around subjects/topics that interested me. Mostly classical greek and roman literature. Didn't read much 17th C stuff except Coleridge's poetry(Rime of the ancient mariner is a favorite of mine).

We're barely exposed to grammar. I took a English writing course last year in 1st year uni and we were pathetic when it came to the grammar exercises.

That's quite bad. That said, if I was given a bunch of exercises on proper use of the semi-colon, I'd probably score pretty low.

I might as well be dead. Dead in bed. I'm still a bit fever-ish.

Aww :( That's too bad. Get better soon!
