    1. When do the old stand by's like Great Gatsby, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Lord of the Flies finally become to old to use? The messages are still relevant, but they don't seem that way to the youth being forced to read them. Are there not newer well written texts that bring up the same principles that could be substituted. I think this helps perpetuate the idea that students 'don't like reading', they may not like older books like the ones mentioned above, but they would be likely to be engaged and find a love of reading if they were offered texts that were more youthful and more interesting to them.
