'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn ' should not be banned from schools. Much controversy surrounds this novel but the truth is, this book is historically accurate and in order to show our history we must show the truth, and the truth is often ugly. " If a book is going to be condemned because of a bad word. Baning books is an insult to the intelligence of students, who are expected to maintain their grades and function in the school envirement, yet are not trusted to draw their own conclusions about a novel. it is understanable that the schools wish to 'protect ' students from the innuendo 's expressed in this book, this hypocritical fight will succeed only in the decay of free thought students have left.
Would you recommend the book to another student or teacher? Considering the educational, historical as well as cultural value of reading Lack’s book, I would highly recommend another student or teacher to read it. As seen the book presents a comprehensive and balanced account of Texan revolution, one that is unequaled by many historical books. Besides, this well researched and clearly written book, albeit would not replace other related studies but would actively contribute to better understanding of the Texan history.
Meaning children will find interest in storytelling but adults will not although change does not occur with rediscovering what is now the reconsidering for the First President of U.S. which challenges the reader to invest in more research outside an average classroom. Another reason why the book is crucial is to learn more about the Father of the Country which we will never know about him. From his military history to his personal life, Lengel gives readers a captivated idea on Washington we may not ever read in textbooks. Lengel 's approach gives hope that Washington overall may have been the greatest person to undergo the constitution as
In conclusion, the thought of censoring in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is plainly idiotic. It suppresses the message Mark Twain is trying to send by, as Hetert-Qebu Walters says, “changes are another form of censorship, seeking to gloss over the complexities of life during a horrific period in American history.” therefore destroying the meaning of the novel. Children will not be tainted by the words used because they know why the words are used, because of education and the fact that they plainly won’t bat and eye at the words. People such as publishers who wish to reprint the book with censored words have no respect for literature and just care about printing more copies for more money.
In spite of being a great book, for me, it has just one aspect that I did not like very much about the book. Allan focused considerably in the personal life of FDR. I knew that the book was about FDR and how he changed the United States, but I wasn’t looking if he was cheating on his wife or if his wife was not satisfied as a woman because Franklin chose to use the method of abstinence to not have more children. On my opinion, these facts are irrelevant with the context that the author is
Ignorance is bliss. In the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury he tries to send readers a message that is saying knowing everything isn 't always good. We shouldn 't always try to know everything because sometimes the truth hurts or it causes pain and misery. It warned what too much knowledge could do to us and the harm it could cause our world. He wants his readers to get the message that the world may be a better place without advancements in technology.
“We stand against the small tide of those who want to make everyone unhappy with conflicting theory and though”-Captain Beatty (59). This quote showing that putting effort into learning and education is against what the majority of people want. Captain Beatty is against knowledge from books and what not because he thinks it serves no real purpose. Captain Beatty's view is similar to the view of the current generation of students in modern day society. Most people today will not read a book because they believe that information can be found so much easier through the internet.
However, the citizens of our society, similar to Fahrenheits, fails to recognize this issue because ideally people should not know of these occurring changes. In this novel, Bradbury portrays the powerful negative effects of technology that can lie upon society. Reading this novel set the tone of what our future can result in and provided a new insight on the events happening around us. For a successful future we must fight against the act of censorship and individualize ourselves from those that surround us. Once fulfilled, our society will stand as informed, and
Bill Cosby believes that it is crucial to learn the proper English language. He does not believe that African-Americans have fought this hard to get an education, for the younger generation to not take full advantage of leaning to speak English properly. I do not agree with Cosby because I do not believe that there is anything wrong with younger people communicating in African American Vernacular English. Although this is true, I can argue that Cosby is correct to a certain extent, because African Americans have fought to be educated while it seems that youngsters give up much easier on learning. I do not think that Smitherman would agree with Bill Cosby.
Authors often alter the account to make the story more compelling as explained in the article “If Truman Capote fibbed, does ‘In Cold Blood’ belong in the trash?” by Tuck Shaw of the Denver Post. Shaw suggests that a note from the publisher in forthcoming editions of Capote’s book should be included. This way the writer makes the account more captivating while the reader and the people portrayed in the book will know that the book isn’t meant completely factual. Regardless, writers should never lie in their account without acknowledging it. All in all, writers should always be truthful when writing a creative journalism novel.
There acts are also changed. While what religion they are changes a bit it doesn 't change that much. All in all there should not be a student book council because it can lead to drugs and pornography. It can also lead to deaths of people that didn 't have enough viable information. Finally since we are in the USA we need to abide by the Constitution.
However, the author needs to make sure that the information that they are providing is concrete and even if they are unsure to not alter it. For example, Gould did a great job in addressing that even though he thought that he clearly remember the things he did with his grandfather, he was completely off. Gould could have easily lie and ended the story without even addressing that his memory did not clearly happened, yet he chose not to. His ethics, scenery and voice helped make his story great and relatable to the
DuBois mentions “ Going to use history for our pleasure and amusement, for inflating our national ego, and giving us a false but pleasurable sense of accomplishment, then we must give up the idea of history either as a science or as an art” (DuBois 714). This quote stood out because it just goes to show how arrogant people actually are to teaching and how this actually resulted in a problem for DuBois because the knowledge he wanted to spread to people was limited. Nevertheless teaching now and teaching for this generation is still the same from my perspective because though certain topics aren’t touched on or are not even recognized that’s how it was in the times of Reconstruction as well. Moving forward to “ The Miseducation of the Negro Excerpts” by Carter G Woodson this article isn’t more so saying that they didn’t want to teach black education to students but more so that students of the same decent didn’t want to hear about their ancestry. Just as when it reads “It is true that many Negroes do not desire to hear anything about their race, and few whites of today will listen to the story of Woe” ( Woodson
This is partly unavoidable but no doubt also reflective of their bias” (Curtis 6). The author limit the breath of subject matter, which limits the scope of the entire picture of Christian history. The singularity of this perspective unbeknownst to the non-academic reader therefore creates a bias in the individuals reading of Church history. Comparisons of Strengths and Weaknesses Noll’s Book
Velasco clearly would not have wrote the letter had he not felt it necessary. The reason he wrote the letter is because he feels something needs changing and feels he wants his voice to be heard. Velasco although trying to get his point across while still attempting to show King Charles is still superior because it would be a criminal offense to disobey or bad mouth the King. The document is clearly a letter due to the direct approach of text “Your Majesty” he is writing directly to him. His story has specifically chosen words to impact the point he is making.
