Banned Books

Hi all! Had this posted on www.lhvlc.com last month during Banned Books Week. Thought I’d keep it here because:

  1. I think it’s awesome, and
  2. I think it lends itself so well to student discussion: Why do you think people feel strongly about removing books from schools that they see as in some way inappropriate? Do people have the right to make those kinds of decisions for the entire community? How might you compare website filtering to  banning books?
