The last week of every September is Banned Books Week. Today all of my students started with this warmup (we are reading The Crucible): Giles says Martha is “so taken with books” and that she has been arrested simply for reading them. Even today, some books can be controversial, and attempts are frequently made to ban some in our schools and libraries. What makes a book “dangerous” in your opinion? We had a great discussion about this today. If anyone has a current issue of RHI (The Random House magazine for educators) the entire edition is dedicated to banned/censored books and has articles by great authors. What are you doing this week to bring light to this topic?
