Censors may say that it only teaches kids bad things and will give them the wrong idea. However, the “bad things” in the book can be used as examples of what not to do, so it turns into a good lesson for middle schoolers. And, the story has a good moral so no one should keep that from middle schoolers. According to Allison McDonald on scholastic.com, “Censorship is not protecting your children; rather, it's merely a way to avoid lessons you could be teaching them no matter what your beliefs may be. Instead, read these books with your kids and explain why you agree or disagree with the content.
The book was and is mainly objected to being banned by parents who did not want their 14-16 year old child to read such foul language. On the contrary, many teachers find that the book’s profanity is not an issue for parents or students to distress over. Joseph Millchap, a high school English teacher, has taught Of Mice and Men for the past five years. He believes once the book is understood and explained, that the profanity is not a problem by saying, “there’s a lot that might make parents worried for their child, but once they see the purpose—that we’re not throwing something at their kids for shock value, then it becomes a safe environment to discuss issues that the students are going to have to deal with in life” (Millchap 2). He later goes on to express his firm belief that this book provides study for many types of literary techniques such as sentence structure, further proving the point that profanity is not something for parents and students alike to stress over.
According to the article “The First Amendment: Censorship,” speech is routinely censored due to bias, or personal issues with the content (First Amendment, 3). Also, in the article “Censorship Goes to School,” Nancy Day discusses how advocates for removing “hurtful and dangerous” books believe that they are protecting children, and that is more important than access to free speech (Day, 4). Because integrity in education is important, teachers should stay within the bounds and follow the requirements of education (First Amendment, 2). Author Zibby O’Neal said “We try to teach young people the first amendment rights, but then deny them a book” about repeated efforts to ban The Chocolate War (Day, 3). You would think the people who educate would be open minded, they are actually the most critical (Censorship, 2).
On the issue of banning books, it seems that the parents know the right things and others do not. In reality every book read in a high school, a parent is always going to state why the child should not read such and such a book. It 's simply opinionated. I believe that if a book has some good moral or is taught in a manner that projects good morality then it should be allowed to be part of the school 's
This is your time to get a better relationship with him and your time to testify with the Lord. This is the time to really encourage your friends and classmates to pay attention and listen in on what is happening in chapel and bible class. Before I was in eighth grade i always used to mess around and laugh with my friends, but i soon realized how important it is. This will set you off on either a righteous path or a non righteous path that will determine how your life will be
So, it could have no role in reducing or Increasing dropout rates. School teachers can effectively bring hip hop into the classroom, by using rap songs to understand math problems, or break down science concepts. For example, English teachers can have the students analyze hip hop song to discover similes and metaphors in the song. Challenges that teacher might face when bringing hip hop into the classroom is the controversial topics that hip hop discusses, or parents that don’t approve of the use of hip hop in
Which leads to “some parents, politicians, and educators have questioned whether making condom available should be the job of the school” (Ascd). This group feels that school is for learning subjects such as math, reading, and others not learning how to put on condoms in science class. But little do these people know high school is the main places to inform about sex and give condoms because there are teachers and educators that are ready to inform students. Sex education and condoms will help increase teen sex, this is not true because United States teens are having sex at a younger age without using some type of protect from STDs and pregnancy. Some children may think it 's ok to have sex just because they have a condom but a condom is not always hundred percent.
However, the closing text in the ’’Children’s Picture Bible’’ is certainly ambiguous, in Nebuchadnezzar indicating ’’ No one is to say a word against this God again’’. While the text may be at an independent reading level for senior classes in primary school, the value underlying the story is still at its core, and deep-rooted interpretational ability is crucial. Robinson (2011) implies that a disadvantage to such an open, interpretive approach is in that of ‘’encouraging uniformed naivety’’ (Robinson, 2011, 176) through disregarding any sense of depth in children constructing personal meaning.
Some people may argue limiting the amount of technology helps them with homework and class assignments. This all could be possible if parents listen to all the listed. Their argument is weak because children could use books instead of the internet. Others may argue teaching the negatives of cyber bullying may interest the kid to cyber bully, but by teaching them cyber bullying is wrong, they wouldn’t want to go
According to Lincoln.edu, “Religious freedom includes the freedom to worship, to print instructional material, to train teachers and to organize groups for their employment and school in which to teach, including.” Funny that freedom of religion states that it can be in taught in schools, but the only schools were religion is taught is private and Christian schools. When a student sneeze, teachers don’t even say “God Bless You,” they simply shorten it to “Bless You.” Many public schools do not allow prayer in the schools or not even religious conversations to take place in the classroom because they are afraid of some students being offended. One of my high school years, we happened to have a religious debate in my English class because my English teacher was a Pastor, the next day we got to class and one of the students had gone home and told their parents that we were attacking them because they didn’t believe in God like the majority of the class did.
Fahrenheit 451 is ironically banned in many schools, but why would someone ban a book that promotes individuality and respecting knowledge? Fahrenheit 451 emphasizes on important topics that every teen should have the possibility to learn and read about. The main theme that is primarily connected to this book is censorship. In Fahrenheit 451 Ray Bradbury makes it a point that regular people aren 't allowed to read books. I think it is important for teens to read this book because it allows the readers to see how important it is for people to stand up for what they think is good for them, even if it isn 't accepted by society.
I do not see this as censoring students from novels. I believe this to be more of an outward show of providing students with literature that is in their zone of proximal development. Any literature outside of their zone of proximal development can hinder students
Children may be taught to love Christ and to devote themselves to him, yet their meditation comes from routine and memorization and not religious zeal (Hunt). Bible classes require for students to memorize verses that the students may only study to make a grade (Hunt). On the other hand, a public school will force to students to commit to their religion because they are faced
Do you think teenagers should read a story that has killing or a lot of inappropriate content and violence? Others think it's good to have them read it but I think teens shouldn't be reading this because “The Call of The Wild” and “After an outpouring of literary outrage, N.C. Country Reconsiders Book Ban” prove to me that these books are bad.
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. Instead, it suggests that many different factors could combine to create this result.
