Mrs. McFadden's Banned Books Assignment

Thanks, Mrs. McFadden, for bringing the important issue of banned books to the forefront!

The assignment:  Students are to list the 25 most banned books of 2009, list two quotations about book banning, and list three arguments for and against banning books in public schools.

Did you know that the DICTIONARY was challenged this past year? See a list of other challenged books here:

Please also visit the library's Intellectual Freedom page to get a lot of general information, including the American Library Association's home page, the ultimate experts in intellectual freedom.

To find arguments for and against banning books in public schools, please visit this page of our Opposing Viewpoints database. You will need a username/password  to get in because this is a paid service. The username is our school mascot (plural) and the password is the word "remote."
