For the high school homeschooling do you have your children read books that the high school reading books list (to kill a mockingbird, romeo and juliet) from public schools?

wow, just saw this now. mine are in 9th this year. no, we don't use the suggested books from school. i actually downloaded a roster of books that men (i have twin boys) of all ages say had the most profound impact on them when they were teens. i choose from that list. just google "books men recommend" or something like that if you want. we just finished A  Separate Peace. Really good. I can usually find questions online about each chapter in the books we read. so i just pirate them.

I Googled books for high school boys and found Books for Boys & Other Children Who Would Rather Make Forts All Day.  I also used Book Adventure to create a list.

DS has since developed a liking for science fiction classics.

I had him do To Kill a Mockingbird last year.  He will probablly do The Iliad or The Hobbit this year.

My son is using Exploring America by Ray Notgrass this year, and since it encompasses his history, LA, and Bible all in one, he will be reading the books listed as part of the curriculum. I absolutely do not agree with PS ideas of what is appropriate or even NECESSARY reading for children. I mean, have you read about the accepted 11th grade 'Common Core' book The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison?
