Response to yortsed snacilbuper (Original post)

5. When I was a junior in high school at one point during the year our teacher said,

"Now, read whatever you want but you have to write a paper about it" so I read The World According to Garp, which I know for a fact the Alaska school board would not have approved. But the point is I could have read The Exorcist if I'd wanted to, or Naked Lunch. She just wanted us to fall in love with reading. I hope some schools still teach that way.
