Celebrate the FREEDOM to READ this week!
In honor of Banned Books Week, I'm showcasing some of the books that have been banned or challenged over the years in my classroom.
Students are always amazed to see the many titles that make the lists. How could their beloved childhood favorites possibly be offensive? We discuss the reasons they are challenged and have great debates that usually end with students grabbing up the books and wanting to check them out.
Truly, Banned Books Week is a great way to get kids interested in reading (anything that seems remotely "forbidden" or offensive to adults arouses interest in teens).
