This is a guiding principal of English curriculum in MA:
Guiding Principle 2
An effective English language arts and literacy curriculum draws on literature in order to develop students’ understanding of their literary heritage.
American students need to become familiar with works that are part of a literary tradition going back thousands of years. Students should read literature reflecting the literary and civic heritage of the English-speaking world. They also should gain broad exposure to works from the many communities that make up contemporary America as well as from countries and cultures throughout the world. In order to foster a love of reading, English language arts teachers encourage independent reading within and outside of class.
