Salinger is a wonderful novel with rich educational content and it should not be withheld from students because of what is deemed inappropriate and “explicit” language and content. Moreover, The Catcher in the Rye is an educational book that should be included in the sophomore English curriculum because out in the real world, life experiences are not censored or banned to protect you, sophomore students are at the age where they are old enough to know what is appropriate and what isn’t and they can read a book that has bad words in it, and if a book is banned for such a thing as bad language, the students are the ones being shorted because they are missing the educational value of the
American literature has always been a form of entertainment and education. When slaves were introduced as characters in books, they were always negative, stereotypical characters, but not until 1883 when Mark Twain wrote The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was a change made. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a book about a southern white boy in the 1800’s that runs away with an escaped slave on the Mississippi River. For years, schools have been debating on if the book should be banned in schools or not, and it is already on a variety of banned lists. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn should not be banned in schools because it is an anti-slavery novel that teaches students valuable lessons and informs students of the past culture.
Banned Books are books that are prohibited by law or to which free access is not permitted by other means. Banning books is against the writers right for freedom of speech, which is the first amendment. Students have the right to read, reading is not illegal, so why ban books? If a reader is mature enough to handle some curse words or bad behavior then they should be able to read banned books. Some people believe books should not be banned in schools/libraries but just because you do not like it does not mean it should be taken away, that is the authors freedom of speech.
Throughout the book a lot of harsh language was used, along with ideas that may be considered inappropriate. This book should be taught to High School students across the country, and it should not be a banned book. To Kill a Mockingbird teaches students morals, and ethics. The book is still partially accurate to what some people go through even in today’s world, and what the books reads is still a part of history that should not be covered up and tucked away. To Kill a Mockingbird should still be taught in school systems, and should not be a banned book because the novel focuses on a part of history that should not be ignored.
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.
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.
Censorship The United States Government is finding new ways to censor citizen’s freedom. Are they taking it too far by removing online content and books that might be considered offensive to the general public. The government should not take away offensive reading content for three reasons. Firstly all citizens should not be limited to what books they are allowed to read considering we have been granted freedom from the government with the first Amendment. Secondly, books are people’s best teachers and provide real life knowledge for kids and adults who are trying to comprehend subjects that we not taught throughout the many years of education.
R is for refuse which helps the students build the confidence to say NO to offered drugs, E means for the student to explain why they chose not to take or do drugs, A describes how students can learn to avoid being put in dangerous situations with drugs involved, and L talks about how students can leave the scene and not feel the pressure to stay. This strategy within this campaign is very clear and to the point well enough for children of a young age with a smaller attention span. There is one weakness to the type of message strategy for this health campaign. Depending on where the course is taught within different school systems in the United States, there are different versions that emphasize vary resistance exercises and geographical cultural influences. This is a potential problem because the message that is trying to come across through the message strategy is altered away from what the message actual means to how it can be construed to fit a specific culture or geographical interest such as
Huck struggles to see the good in society because everyone he has ever lived with has not seen his great potential, he wants to be free of societal pressures which proves to be a hard task. Jim on the other hand is not a free man he is a slave, therefore freedom is very important to him. He has been a slave for many years and gaining his freedom will prove that he is a person and deserves to be treated like one. According to Huck, “...whoever saved [Jim] would send him back home so as to get a reward, then Miss Watson would sell him [for] sure.” Huck is beginning to realize that Jim is a human being and things that society has told him might be wrong. He is pulling more and more away from society’s beliefs and gaining a little bit of freedom each time.
Some children will follow that rule but with others, they wouldn't pay attention. I think it should me more of a parents responsibilities to teach their children about the good and bad of drugs, and that the parents should teach them when they deem it to be appropriate. Not have schools force children to learn about
