I don't think the OP is wrong to get upset about being told to teach a novel. That is one of those things that looks good on paper, but in practice would be a nightmare.

Its one of those bright ideas agreed upon by a management that has no experience of esl or teaching such material themselves.

In practice its very hard to teach something as complex as a novel to undisciplined classes with very limited vocabulary that you are not allowed to control.
Catch my drift?
