Product Description
These lessons can work as a standalone mini-unit to introduce students to Banned Books Week and censorship, or it can be incorporated into a larger unit about censorship. In the first 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. On the next day, they analyze an argument for censorship and discuss how Alexie might respond to these proponents of censorship.

Included in this resource:
-Lesson plans for three days
-Graphic organizer


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