Default Basic Type Vocabulary

Folks-

It has been some time since our last "desert Island list" thread, so I figured I'd stir things up a bit....

At the school where I teach, we are trying to build a basic type vocabulary for our students. So, we are presenting them with 6 typefaces for each of 6 quarters.

I'm building the list, and I need some suggestions.

Here's what I've got:

Helvetica
Times
Gill Sans
Garamond
Bodoni
Clarendon

Franklin Gothic
Univers
Caslon
Futura
Brush Script
Palatino

Eurostile
Lubalin Graph
Benguiat
Optima
Avant Garde
Bookman

New Cent, Sch.
Courier
Baskerville
Caflisch Script
Copperplate
Snell Roundhand

Trebuchet
Verdana
Impact

I need 9 more--suggestions?
