The last reason is that it will get rid of children’s first amendment, and the authors first right as well. Some people believe that books should not be banned from schools because they need to learn what happened. The first reason is that the books can be about our history and they used some words that are know bad. In the book Animal Farm “The three hens who had been ringleaders in the attempted rebellion over the eggs now came forward and stated that snowball had appeared to them in their dreams and incited to disobey napoleon 's orders” (Orwell 84).The book Animal Farm by George Orwell is a good book, but on page 84 the leader of the farm murdered 3 hens because they were rebelling to save their kids.Some people think that Animal Farm should be banned for having murder in the book but thats what happened back then during the russian revolution.“There is some Gore in the book that makes people uncomfortable,”(avi selk 16 ).If the book makes people uncomfortable than they should not read the
From its first publication in 1939, John Steinbeck’s novel The Grapes of Wrath has become a classic in American history and literature. Yet Steinbeck’s use of intercalary chapters has always faced criticism. Because they depict stories separate from the main plot, many readers think that they detract from the story of the Joad family. Steinbeck defends his choice, arguing that they only add to the story. He also argues that the intercalary chapters provide insight into the society for which the narrative chapters do not allow.
Have you ever read the novel Of Mice and Men? In the novel Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck George and Lennie wanted to live in the American Dream, but Lennie kept getting into trouble, so George had to make a decision about how to make Lennie stop getting in trouble. George made the right decision to kill Lennie, so Lennie wouldn’t get into anymore trouble. George made the right choice because it let Lennie go through a painless death, it stop Lennie from making more mistakes, and Lennie can now live in the American Dream like he always wanted in heaven. Some may argue, that George made the wrong decision because Lennie was all that George had.
This cartoon was originally published by Jack Ohman for the Sacramento Bee in 2016. Ohman, finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Award drew this cartoon to portray Americans and the inability to decipher what is truly dangerous. The cartoon about Ebola and other causes of death shows that the main concerns of our everyday lives should not be focused on the “breaking news story” of the newfound deadly disease, but it should be focused on the lack of effect that the everyday bad habits have on us. American awareness of the importance of living a healthy life is lacking, which is what Ohman was trying to achieve with the cartoon. The cartoon shows an obese American holding items such as fast food, tobacco, and alcohol, but the character holds a fearful
In the “ Letter to Martin Luther King from a Group of Clergymen” Martin Luther King Jr. used rhetorical techniques such as logos and asking rhetorical questions to show his audience the value of civil disobedience. On page 7 Martin Luther King says “ Since we so diligently urge people to obey the supreme courts decision of 1954 outlawing segregation in the public schools it is rather strange and perodoxical to find us consciously breaking laws.” This is persuasive because it’s a fact, the truth. We break laws on a daily basis, minor ones, and know it but yet obeying the courts decision about segregation doesn’t phase us. This is giving a logic statement about obeying the courts decision. On page 7 “We started having workshops on the non-violence
In his article, “Banned Book Awareness: To Kill A Mockingbird” (2012), Wolf Baldassarro explains the argument of people who are opposed to the alleged “Racist” book To Kill A Mockingbird. Baldassarro supports this explanation by showing the claims made by numerous schools wanting a release of the book from required curriculum. Baldassarro purpose is to help those who don’t support the book in order to prepare students for the real world which is what education is supposed to do right? Wolf Baldassarro uses a sarcastic tone with his young and non supportive audience. This source is useful by means of kindly explaining how people find the book inappropriate.
He explains how society has changed, new technology, and moral changes. In his novel, Fahrenheit 451, Bradbury explains that because of society getting attached to technology and other topics that don’t require deep thought, they have ruled out reading, and with that, books. Society has taught people for years that books are simply bad. Everyone knows that books are not allowed, which is one of the reasons why Millie decided to turn her husband in. We can use this as an example to justify Millie turning in her husband because she was brainwashed by society.
Winston just finished a frustration conversation with the old man about what life was before the revolution. He then realizes that the Party is deliberately trying to weaken people’s memories in order to make them unable to challenge what the Party says about the present. If no one remembers what life was like before the revolution, no one can say that the Party has failed them by forcing them to live in conditions of hunger, filth, poverty and ignorance. The Party instead used history books that have been rewritten in order to prove their good
The most significant character they met was the King and Duck, the con artists, who help to show the growth in Huck 's moral while creating sorts of problems. Along with many discrimination, Jim eventually earns his freedom at the end of the book. The novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain should not remain a staple in high school curriculum by its possibility of causing the negative emotional effect on students, creates more problem to the relationships between black and white people, and too difficult for students to understand the main idea of the book. Reading The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in
However the true facts is that these texts, which are represented by famous publishers like McGraw-Hill and Prentice Hall are ignoring the facts about slavery and slave patrols. These text stride to give you the best context on the American judicial system, but did not talked about the event that started it all. Criminologist discuss in the journal that police officers are getting the most attention and given today’s policing history is essential to understand this systematic racism we called law enforcement. This journal deserve an 8 because it gets a good look at the lack of education about slavery in textbooks. I wish there was more history on slave patrols, but the criminologists made me think about policing today.
