Banned Books Week

lsfink Novice
Currently Being Moderated

Banned Books Week, which runs September 22-28 this year, draws attention to the issue of censorship and how it can best be combated. NCTE, through its Anti-Censorship Center offers advice, helpful documents, and other support to teachers and schools faced with challenges to texts (e.g. literary works, films and videos, drama productions) or teaching methods used in their classrooms and schools.

 

Join NCTE as they kick off Banned Books Week with a twitter chat at #nctechat on Sunday, September 22, at 8:00 p.m. ET. The chat will be hosted by Teri Lesesne and Laurie Halse Anderson who will also be featured speakers during the NCTE Annual Convention this November in Boston.

 

Be sure to check out the ReadWriteThink.org lesson plan A Case for Reading -- Examining Challenged and Banned Books, which introduces students to censorship and then invites them to read a challenged book and decide for themselves what should be done with the book at their school.
