Thread Name: Anyone here had to recite?
Subject: RE: Anyone here had to recite?
I'm curious about the distribution of reciting to national school systems to years that it was required. In other words:
When were you required to do these recitations?
Where (Country) were you at the time?
What were you required to recite?

In other words, it is obvious that only a United Statesian would be required to recite the Declaration Of Independence. Were any of you from the US and also required to recite, say, Gray's Elegy? Were any of the British contingent required to recite Longfellow?
