Junior Certificate reading list

The day after last year's Junior Cert candidates got their marks, we're posting this year's III form reading list. Each year in the first term, III formers write a long essay comparing books, which goes towards 25% of their exam marks. An earlier version of the list of choices from our Library collection was published in the Spring 2007 edition of the Teaching English magazine, and can be read by clicking the Issuu version at the bottom of this post.

Included in the list are novels such Teresa Breslin's Divided City, M.T.Anderson's The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing and Margaret Bechard's Hanging on to Max. Pupils - you can read the entire list here, and also always under Department Documents (scroll down for the link on the right).
