From the Media Center at Woodlawan Middle School, March 2016
Should this book be banned?
Eighth grade advanced learners analyzed censorship law and whether the book The Killer Angels (which students read in ELA class) should be banned in school due to some of the language in the award-winning novel. The media center lesson focused on whether students could state a claim/opinion and then support it with evidence from either U.S. Supreme Court rulings or guidelines from the American Library Association (ALA). The lesson is being expanded to reach more students in April, which is National School Library Month.
