In the passage you are about to read I will tell you some reasons why books should not be banned from any libraries. First, the children reading the book have probably heard the words before. So they should learn to use the words appropriately. Also, the children should learn not to say the words as a joke because many people can be offended by the words being said to them. I understand that you might think that people should watch their language around children.
Such as parents banning books so their children do not have to read books that they think are inappropriate. I believe books should not deserve to be banned in Liberty High School because we Junior High School students deserve to read unique kinds of books so we can experience the different qualities that books have. For instance, in my high school career, I have read books that have been banned but there are two specific books that I’ve been concerned of; which is Flowers for Algernon and Romeo and Juliet. A number of parents have banned these two specific books
The parents of these children have read these book and most likely learn things the don't even relies came from the books they do not want the kids to read. banning books is one of the worst things that could be done; moreover, it is unlawful and takes away from learning. In this day and age if the
Chris Street wrote an original research article, “Expository Text and Middle School Students: Some Lessons Learned”, and tells us that middle school students face difficulty reading expository texts because they were not taught how to read in this fashion while in elementary school. While in elementary school, they read short novels and chapter books, whereas, in middle school they are expected to read content area text. According to this article, teachers can help their middle school students overcome reading deficiencies by developing a student’s former knowledge on a subject before reading it. Street provides very good strategies on how to engage students with expository text, which consists of: before reading, during reading, and after reading. Before reading strategies include developing
Also, it will make students wonder how people could actually believe these things. However, in the book Fahrenheit 451, there are points that will make students question why they should bother learning. In the novel, Fahrenheit 451, there are points in the book where students will obtain the point of view from where they can see how controversial reading can be. They get this point of view from the following quote, “‘Where’s your common sense, none of these books agree with each other…Snap out of it’” (38)! This quote can give readers the thought that rather than books being beneficial to the
Literacy in My Life When I was young, my parents read to me a lot to help me read better for when I started school. Once I started school I was a pretty good reader but I was not very good with writing. The teachers would make us write all the time, and I thought it was useless. I am not a very good writer because I would choose to do the very least I could do to get by with writing prompts throughout my elementary and middle school years. In high school, I was worried about the writing test before and after I took the test.
I didn’t realize this book went over so much different things, like how the Ku Klux Klan got started, and Drug dealers living with their parents, I would recommend this book for everyone to read it was very interesting to me. I didn’t realize Macroeconomics would fall into this. One thing that I didn’t know was that teachers would cheat to get there grades up to get a better bonus; I guess I just came from a small school. I would have to agree with the Author of this book, that there is so much stuff that goes on in this world that we don’t think about. We stay in our own little community, and not think what is going on outside of it as long as we are happy and safe.
Following his lectures, educators would confide in him that they felt uncomfortable teaching a work to children with such offensive terminology. While I agree with Gribben that one word shouldn't prevent American schoolchildren from having access to a literary classic, I'm not sure that ridding Huck Finn of the N-word is the solution. Certainly, I'm not suggesting that teachers
An exemplar of this is Mordecai Richler's novel, Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz or Margaret Lawrence’s Stone Angel. Furthermore, Fifth Business, published over four decades ago, is still on many courses of study in Gr. 12 classrooms. Again, while some teachers allow students to focus on more modern Canadian books for their ISP, the real classroom experience is limited to studying these archaic novels that are irrelevant to today’s Canadian society. The current curriculum is rapidly turning off students from reading Canadian literature ever again as the content that they are exposed to is not of their interest and does not appeal to the masses.
When parents say their concerns about banning the book it makes other people realize that maybe it should be banned, but they don't see the lesson being taught underneath all the demeaning language and situations in the novel. Parents should think deeper when they read The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn since they are not thinking hard enough to see the literary worth of this novel to students. However, this novel should only be read by students who are in middle school and in high school because it gives the students a clear idea of what a good novel is. A novel that contains all literary worth and it can broaden their way of thinking about the real world. Also, something to consider about parents being concerned about this novel was probably the fact that they are scared of what the past contained.
