When school libraries ban books students are left with books about only positive things and an unrealistic picture of the world. If a book like To Kill a Mockingbird is banned students lack the intelligence about such topics taught in the book. To Kill a Mockingbird teaches about bravery, the real world, treating others with respect, and many other things. If a student is never exposed to this he or she will not know about racism or other unfair and unjust things in the world. If students are “protected” from real world situations they will not succeed in life.

The trouble was I’d been finding that door my own self because I got scared of being lost so long and went to hollering so they could track me” (Kesey 132). As readers have seen in the past, the fog is known to hinder Bromden’s ability to remember events from the past. On page 130, it is evident that when Bromden finally gains an understanding of the fog machine’s purpose, he is able to remember a huge part of his early life that he had forgotten about while undergoing treatment by Nurse Ratched. A few pages later, the analogous shift in Bromden’s confidence is seen with the lack of fog, as he finally realizes that he is capable of resisting the
I remerber the first time I learned how to read. That was the hardest things I’ve ever learned. Because, when I was in kindergarden, I wasn’t a smart boy. I just wanted to play and play so, when my teacher asked me to read, I couldn’t do that because I never review my lesson at home. After that, my teacher told my mother to take me to a private class and also have to pay more to my school.
They call it: Speech. At least, that is what my parents called it. I did not like being pulled out of class just to go to this one thing I could care less about. "I do not want to go to Speech today," I whined to my parents. They were worried about me not receiving the help.

In a future where books are banned and destroyed by the government, Guy Montag, a fireman in charge of burning books, meets a schoolteacher who dares to read and a girl who tells him of a past when people did not live in fear. Fahrenheit 451 was a hard book to understand. Censorship played a big role in this. Fahrenheit 451 doesn’t provide a single, clear explanation of why books are banned in the future.

Within the excerpt The Old Woman Burns from the novel Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, one is portrayed the central idea of the situation regarding the old woman in possession of books. The reader is able to identify the essential theme, through the actions of the old woman, which demonstrates that one should be insurgent against a corrupt cause in order to support their individual perspectives and values. Bradbury conveys this central theme through the literary device known as conflict. Initially, the old woman encounters numerous tribulations with Captain Beatty, as she does not desire in abandoning the books in which she possesses.

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, it is a very controversial book and rightfully so, It contains many themes that aren't often discussed nowadays, including racism and the harmful effects of society. It told the story about a boy named Huckleberry Finn and a runaway slave named Jim, and their adventures down the Mississippi river, and it contained many themes that may offend people. I feel that The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn should not be censored and should be like it was 130 years ago. I believe censoring it would erase history and it’s important culture, and censoring would be useless because others could just choose to ignore it.
In some ways, organisms, people, cultures, as well as ecosystems change their habits and their ways of life to better themselves.

Some individuals are influenced by others to change, while others change on their own. However, some don’t feel influenced to adapt because they think that they don’t need a change.
