Celebrate Banned Books Week with this tech-friendly, whole class collaborative project!!
This presentation template can be used in Microsoft Powerpoint or Google Slides (it was created in GS and imported into PPT). Use the introductory slides (youtube video embedded on the title page) to introduce BBW and provide an example book slide to your students. Note: the info graphic comes from the annual ALA censorship report. They release a new graphic every year on their website, so this page can easily be updated annually.
Then, assign groups of 2-4 to research each banned book, using the links you provided as their research! All links and formatting should work within the template. If you are a Google-friendly school, once downloaded, the PPT can easily be converted back to Google Slides by opening a new Slide project and clicking "file-- import slides."
Ever notice your student's slides are boring and/or disorganized??!! The directions page includes screenshots from Google to show students how to format some of the "prettier" parts of their group's slide.
