6-12 English Language Arts Required Reading Lists

Springfield School District celebrates the many voices of the world through its selection of a diverse required reading list. We aim to introduce students to a variety of perspectives and genres. Walking alongside the canon are modern authors celebrated for their writing styles, new takes on classic narratives, and authentic depictions of cultural realities. We strive to create language arts classrooms that reflect the communities we serve and where everyone feels empowered to express their full, authentic selves. We are committed to creating an inclusive curriculum that represents many different cultures, backgrounds, and viewpoints.
