This permission form was designed for an academically talented and gifted class. Since, several of the fifth graders were reading at seventh and eight grade levels, I had to find challenging books that would engage them during their literature circle discussions. However, these books would create developmentally appropriate issues. After communicating with my principal, this form was created to provide parents a choice and provide adequate time to review the books. Parents seemed to like this option, and as educators, it is our responsibility to serve the community and respect its values. The permission form provides websites to help parents thoroughly review the books and see what other professionals and parents have stated. The website links were edited for copyright reasons, but you can figure them out. You should be able to edit it and make it your own.
