Banned Books Week is over, but as we are well aware the banning never stops. In Laurie Halse Anderson’s livejournal today she linked to this post written by a teacher who had to face censorship full on a few years ago. This post is so heartfelt and honest and inspiring. This woman is the type of teacher I hope to be someday. I’m bookmarking the post so that I can go back to it and re-read it whenever I, as a teacher, am getting discouraged.
Have you ever been challenged for the books you’ve had students or teens read?
