Product Description
In this engaging lesson, students use argumentative writing to provide a rationale for the study of banned or challenged books. Students participate in a short research activity to discover the charges against the books, then use a note catcher graphic organizer to help them identify text examples that demonstrate the educational value of their books. They annotate for life lessons, character connections, pathways to understanding, and real-world relationships. After gathering their text evidence, students are guided through the writing process with a series of handouts, eventually completing an argumentative essay. This resource also includes a fun bookmark extension activity.

The following handouts are included in the 15-page file:
-teacher instructions
-anticipation guide
-graphic organizers
-writing prompt
-peer review handout
-proofreading handout
-rubric
-bookmarks

This can be used as a culminating activity at the end of a novel study or as a stand-alone lesson for Banned Books Week.
