In Cold Blood: Educational or Inappropriate? When brainstorming inappropriate subjects to discuss with children at school, topics such as murder, violence, inappropriate language, or affairs may come to mind. The question is raised that if it benefits the child to converse about these matters, should books about adult themes, like murder be allowed in schools? Many novels, including In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, arguably should be banned, because it contains gruesome details about real life murders. Parents are mostly concerned about letting their children reading this book, while the majority of teachers approve it.
On the inside of the book, there was a list that had the race of the student and the condition of the book when it was issued to the student. On the last line, it said ¨Race of student - nigra¨ and for the condition it had ¨very poor.¨ Little Man saw that and it made him upset. He asked his teacher for a new book because that one was dirty. She scolded him and Cassie pointed out the words on the inside of the book, and she got in trouble. On page 26, the book says ¨Holding the book up to her
The play Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare has been taught in school for many years now. Some say that we should continue to allow our teens to read this tragic love story, while many argue that this play should no longer be allowed in schools. The issues concerning this tragic love story are the inappropriate jokes, the unrealistic view of love, and the promotion of suicide. These issues will indeed prove why Romeo and Juliet is ill suited to be taught to freshmen. Ninth graders should no longer read Romeo and Juliet because it is has very inappropriate jokes that should not be associated with school.In the beginning on the play two of Lord Capulet’s servants Gregory and Sampson are in the streets of Verona.
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, why this book written by Mark Twain should be on the banned books list in schools and why it is too mature for it’s students. This book is full of situations that honesty students are not able to handle, leaving inappropriate impressions about racism and how to treat people and is going to cause teenagers and young adults to repeat the language and personalities seen in this, to other groups of this century that are fitting now The problem with Adventures of Huckleberry Finn isn’t that it is a bad book, not that maybe it is poorly written or isn’t a learning experience. The fact of the matter is that students do not hold the attention span or mental capacity to be forced to deal with this. While some may use to excuse that high school students may have enough knowledge over these situations, or if explained, people would enjoy the moral of the story more, that is not always the case. Students in high school already are expected so much of.
Ever wonder about real life lessons and what comes with having them, well the essay you 're about to read will teach you about them. First of all many lessons from older times have been taught today in school, some may not have been. To kill a mockingbird is a great lesson that teachers shouldn 't teach today for example the book has old fashioned and very sophisticated writing like on pg(31) “Jems free dispensation of my pledge..”, what high schooler in 10th grade is going to know what that word even means.If teachers are going to teach a lesson to their students then the kids should actually be able to understand the writing. Another example why to kill a mockingbird shouldn 't be taught in schools today is because kids would read this book and most likely not even be able to relate to the book, the whole racism thing we wouldn 't understand mainly because in our times everyone is treated the same, color doesn 't matter. Back then it was a big deal, we didn 't grow up in those times how on earth could we even understand what that sort of thing is like.
But ever since it has been published, the book has gained a reputation for being inappropriate, and not suitable for schools. The Color Purple by Alice Walker should be kept in school libraries because it conveys the importance of family, shows examples of overcoming hardship and discusses serious topics such as rape and death. The Color Purple is an inspiring, beautiful, and powerful read for teens.

In many high schools, 9th graders read stories from different times and of different genres in their english classes. Notably, one of the most prominent stories read by high schoolers is The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. However, there is controversy that high schoolers should not read this Shakespearean play because many argue that it is not relevant to what teens deal with on a daily basis. Despite the fact that the tragedy takes place in the 14th century, teens were no different back then. As a matter of fact, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet presents topics that present-day teens still struggle with such as brain development, tunnel vision, and how to correctly approach suicidal teens.
The film, “Walkout” is based on real incidents in East L.A. about teenagers in high school walking out of schools to protest the unjust rules against chicanos during the 1960s. It was a movie dealing with racist school boards, discrimination against Mexican-Americans, and teenage revolution. The students became fed up with the way they were being treated in school so they started a movement that would gain their freedom. The movie is inspiring and educational because of its subject matter and true to life feel. It blends the use of english and spanish well.
They may seem like they help, but school uniforms aren't what we're looking for. They are both a restriction on student rights and schools don't have the power to enforce clothing on students. Making uniforms mandatory is useless and won't solve the problem.- (Forster and Geier 1.)
