This is my first Steinbeck book. I don't count Grapes of Wrath because I didn't actually read it when I was in school.

Interesting that there isn't required reading anymore. I don't know if I like that. I think it gives a teacher a very vast catalog to choose from and sometimes required reading helps them narrow it down.

Interesting.

But now... see that is your city/county/state.

Is that the same in ours?

I agree.

Also, I had one cool teacher who linked the period of the book with a group project and each group researched a topic about the time.

Like, when we were The Great Gatsby we researched the 1920s. My group researched fashion. My friend's researched the food of the 1920s and put on a restaurant skit.
I forgot the others. Maybe entertainment (radio, cinema, theater) ???

That's just our school district. I don't know about other states.
Do you know any English teachers?

There wasn't a test. It was suggested summer reading. I gave up on the book and watched the film.

Don't know any English teachers, sadly.

At least I didn't embarrass myself in a book club.

That is a massive guide.
