This lesson can work as a stand-alone plan to introduce students to Banned Books Week and censorship, or it can be incorporated into a larger unit about censorship. In this lesson, students consider why people censor, examine a list of frequently challenged books, and then closely read an article in which Sherman Alexie argues persuasively against censorship.

Included in this resource: Lesson plan, text-based questions organizer for students, quick write.

UPDATE: "Why the Best Books for Kids Are Written in Blood" can now only be accessed with a Wall Street Journal subscription.
