What did you read at school?

I've had a thought today. I want to teach English (I'd rather classical civilisation, but they don't tend to do it outside of grammar schools here, and I'd rather teach comprehensive school students. It'll be harder, sure, but it fits better with the reasons I want to teach in the first place), and so I thought that I should probably start reading the books that students study at school to get a feel for them. I haven't touched that sort of thing since I left when I was sixteen (and I didn't properly read the book I was supposed to in my final year, either).

I remember, when I was at school, reading Of Mice and Men, Macbeth, and To Kill A Mockingbird.

Can any of you on my flist tell me what you read for school when you were aged 11-16?

Ooh, thank you :)

A lot of people here are reading many more books than I did. Or perhaps I don't remember all the books. I do remember studying Mockingbird for ages, so we didn't read anything else in class around that time.
