The primary goal behind the International Baccalaureate Language and Literature course is to expose the students to voices from backgrounds that are different from their own. My goal is to teach as many female voices from as diverse of backgrounds as possible to help the students experience thinking that bucks the traditional, dominant culture presented in high school literature courses. These books will present my students with women's voices ranging from a Persian immigrant to the West, an anglophile Nigerian who meditates on her nation's relationship with its own and the colonial culture that has been thrust upon it, and a powerful black woman's voice from the US's late 20th century who predicted many events of the last decade with startling accuracy. As the students read these novels, they will be considering the cultures, perspectives, and identities through the lens of how time and space and the reader's and author's identities influence the reading and understanding of a text.
