Banned Books Week 2014

BBW13_CoverArtThanks, SDR, for reminding us of Banned Books Week, coming September 21-27. As ELA teachers, let’s find a way to celebrate this, and reading, with our students.

The American Library Association’s website has many suggestions for ways to participate, as does the NCTE’s website. Remember: few things seem to excite teens to read more than someone telling them a book is so dangerous it must be taken off the shelves.

A challenge to each of you: tell us what dangerous book you’re going to read.
