COLLEGE BOUND - Outstanding Books for the College Bound
BANNED BOOK WEEK
Banned Books Week is an annual event that celebrates the freedom to read during the last week of September. This year's Banned Book Week is September 21-27, 2014.
This year's focus will be on Comics and Graphic Novels.
Each year Mrs. Kragenbrink shares with English II students the reason why Banned Book Week is observed. The class has a presentation expaining the difference between challenged books and banned books and then finishes with the students looking at some of the items that are on the Banned Book List that are in the libraries at MVCSD. None of the books that are shared have been challenged or banned at MVCSD. The ultimate learning target of the lesson is to help students understand part of the Library Bill of Rights:
Article V of the Library Bill of Rights states, “A person’s right to use a library should not be denied or abridged because of origin, age, background, or views.”
"Librarians and governing bodies should maintain that parents have the right and responsibility to restrict the access of their children - and only their children - to library resources."
