By reading Huck Finn students will begin to see how these harsh words affect others. An article written by Peaches Henry states the ideas that “if we fail to challenge established ways of knowing, contrast viewpoints, and broaden perspectives we fail to do our job”. If teachers do not allow students to think in many different viewpoints, then they are not

This will also reassure those parents whose first language is not English, and will lead to less concern about their child’s progress.
