Looking for something easy to do for Banned Books week? Try asking the following question:
I am happy with the results and I have watched it spark quite a few discussions among the teens. It is a simple way to get them thinking about having the freedom to read and what might happen if that is challenged or taken away. One of the No answers was -“I think that defending a book is important but there are more important things that I would risk jail time defending than something like Twilight.” (I might have giggled a bit over that response!) Another teen said Yes because “Taking away one freedom makes it easier to take away others.”
So.. Would you risk jail time to defend your favorite book?
