Here are some Library Reading Lists that I like to use:
- 100 Picture Books
- Newberry Medal and Honor Books
- Caldecott Medal and Honor Books
- Sonlight Curriculum Readers
- American Historical Fiction
- World Historical Fiction
- College Bound Reading List
You can also look at the table of contents in reading textbooks to see what stories the text contains. Then, borrow the entire book from the library.
What We're Doing This Year:
Instead of buying an official Literature curriculum for my 10th grade son, I checked out some of the 10th grade Literature texts. I made a list of the books that were highlighted in the texts. Now, I'm going to have my son read about a chapter of each one and choose some of them to read in their entirety. He will be able to find the books at the library and online (if they are old enough). Also, I'm going to have him do some online research about the authors and find online study guide information about the books.
