This quote proves that banned books have lessons to teach too. This quote, for example, is teaching that if you always be kind to people and you will have many friends. These are the two different sides and how they could solve their differences to make both sides happier, a compromise. The first two paragraphs were all about how banned books are bad, how they are all horrific and not something you would like to read. However, in the third paragraph, we find that is not the truth that banned books can be good for people to read as well.
Banned Books: Good or Bad? Should students be exposed to the real world through books or should they be shielded from it? There are many people who agree that banned books should be banned because it is ethical, and valid and it prevents students from emotional stress. On the other side of the argument, people argue that students have the right to read whatever they want. Many books are challenged and banned in schools because they contain inappropriate content or bad language; however, some people have a strong belief that these books are worth reading because they represent ideas of free speech and other important lessons that students will need throughout their lives On the pro side of the argument, there are many reasons why some people support banning books in schools.
Alan Gribben, the editor of the new edition, asserts, “Seems to me I'm doing something constructive by simply eliminating a word that's a clear barrier for many people”. However, the word ‘nigger’ itself does not cause any problems; it’s the intolerance of people exposed to it that makes the word secluded from society. The setting where this issue is most prominent is in high school classrooms. While the use of ‘nigger’ may cause inappropriate behavior by mischievous students, the censorship does more harm than good. It would prevent readers from understanding the word’s prior applications.
This movement has become very popular with both parents and students. The idea is that if everybody continues to opt out from test eventually schools will realize that testing is not working and they will change the ‘norm’ of education. However, the only issue is that they do not provide a good alternative method, their main objective is to raise awareness on how stressful test situations are not the answer. They are on the right track but you can’t just wipe out testing and expect students to magically do better. The solution I am proposing is a whole new school system.
David Brooks successfully persuades his audience through his presentation of his claim, his persuasive writing style, and his usage of emotional appeals. The Other Education written by David Brooks identifies how society lacks the studies of non-scholastic curriculum. Yet, he defines curriculum as a broad term in this article. When thinking about scholastic aspects people ponder the thought of school subjects, however Brooks wishes that society would look past the direct studies. Brooks himself writes, “…Such and such classes, such and such grades, and amassed such and such degrees.” In making this repetitive comment, Brooks dismisses the importance of the syllabus-based education system.
Some people believe books should not be banned in schools and libraries because taking away the First Amendment right, by banning books is not right. First, the freedom of speech and press is taken away when books are banned. To begin, “When librarians and teachers reject works that may be ‘emotionally inappropriate’ for children, they’re adhering to the traditional and mostly prevailing view that children’s literature should avoid controversial topics,” (Ringel). Keeping children from using their voice
Olga Khazan recommends an alternative to a typically unmentionable topic, how parents choose to punish their children for problem behavior, with intentions of informing and persuading said parents on how to more successfully achieve desired behavior from their children. Khazan initially highlights the issue he endorses by posing the question “The answer is to punish them, right?” and then introducing Alan Kazdin by stating, “Not so, says Alan Kazdin … Punishment might make you feel better, but it won’t change the kid’s behavior” (Khazan paragraph 1). Khazan obviously strives to solve humanities problem of disobedience. Khazan interviews Alan Kazdin for more insight on the proclamation. Interviewing Kazdin specifically, Director of the Yale Parenting Center, Khazan establishes Kazdin’s qualification for being able to make such acclamations and
If I were to ignore this core value of respect, I would not be a good role model for my pupils. They might think that since I do not value respect, it would also be 'okay' for them to do so, and thus it might result in them behaving badly and disrespecting their classmates, their teachers, and even their family members. Respect is the foundation of a good and trusting relationship, and since I want my pupils and their parents to trust me, I should treat them with respect for them to learn that it is a valuable moral necessary for good
The topic is if schools should ban books, well I kind of get why teachers and professors would want to get rid of books but think about the students you're taking away good books from them. Sure there might be things that might not be as suitable for the kids, but sometimes they're going to have to run into bad things in the books. I ran into a book and my mom didn't want me to read it, I didn't, so basically what i'm trying to say is their parents should handle what they read. The books should have labels that tell you the level it is and what the book is about on the back. In this prompt i'm going to give you three reasons why teachers shouldn't ban books and why.
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Should be Banned From Schools In school are students supposed to learn about bad language and how to treat people poorly?The fiction novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain should be removed from schools. Twain writes about serious topics as a satire so many people do not realize the intensity. The language, alcoholism, violence, lying, and breaking the law are a few reasons for this novel to be banned from schools. Mark Twain writes about many questionable subjects but does so as a satire which makes it slightly more acceptable. Huck has good morals and is very openminded.
Superintendent Elliott made some errors in this situation. A couple of the errors were responding to the parent complaint without referring him to the proper level and failing to listen to the principal. The complaint that was made by the parent is something that should have been handled by the building principal. Instead of trying to take care of the situation himself the superintendent he should have led the parent to the correct building level channel first to come to allow them the chance to come to a solution. The building principal should have been able to build a stronger school community relation with this parent by being honest and handling his mistake.
There are good and bad in school advertising. These two letters are describing how people feel about school advertising. Let’s read the letters and find the tone of each letter. After reading letter A, I realize the tone of the letter is sad and disappointing.
