I had an idea to study Good Omens with my high school English students in AP Language and Composition. We got district-level approval, and now we just need the books! Neil Gaiman helped out by retweeting a request to his followers, and complete strangers have already bought us 37 copies; we're looking for some more complete strangers to help with the other 73. I'm sure that most of you remember English class as a place where you studied old literature by long-dead authors. While that certainly has an important place in English classes, contemporary literature also has an important place. However, in addition to relatively few contemporary titles on the approved reading lists, we have even fewer actual copies of approved contemporary novels to study with our students. Research tells us that studying contemporary literature can help to create more excitement and engagement in classrooms. Good Omens, specifically, deals with important ideas of human nature, religion, relationships, and ideals of the world we'd like to see rise from the proverbial ashes. It's also hysterically funny (in a way similar to Shakespeare, but in a language that's easier to high school students to understand).
