Leanne (leannesophia5) | 17 comments I'm just getting started, but so excited! I teach ELA 9-12 (in Saskatchewan, Canada) so I've read quite a few of the classics, but I've always had a hankering for World Lit. I want to start creating my list, but I'm wondering if there are any must reads out there? Right now I'm going to spintheglobe.net to determine my flight plan!
