Banned Books Week part 2


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?
