When I was an intern teaching Catcher in the Rye, a teacher a few towns over lost her job because she could not tell parents why she was teaching the same novel. I took notice and made sure I knew why I was teaching it.
When a few of my students opted out (making the teaching more difficult), I decided to create an assignment in order to address the issue. It was as much for me as for them, in some ways. I had all groups choose Catcher as their book for the presentation, and I had plenty of evidence for teaching it after their presentations.
I took the Catcher references out so that this assignment can be more wide-ranging. And more interesting to sit through the presentations. The download provides a 15-slide template for presentations that has students considering the banning of books. As do most of my assignments, this assignment does not force students to agree with the teacher, school board, or anyone. But it also makes them figure out why they think the way they do, as well as when they might be wrong.
Since I didn't have all the requirements set up this way when I taught it, the rubric can be one point per slide or ten. Many of the pages require 2-3 answers, so you can make some slides in the presentation worth more. Have them create a PowerPoint or a Google Presentation. Even a Prezi if you like those.
This is so extensive that you might even cut it back a bit depending on time. It's an assignment I only used once as a practice teacher, but I should have used it each year, especially when teaching a controversial book.
Even homeschool teachers can benefit from this assignment. Just try it and see. ALA's Banned Book Week is usually late September, but you can do this project any time.
