Banned Books: Past and presentSlide2

WHAT IS A BANNED BOOK?

A banned book is a book or other printed works (such as an essay or play) which is prohibited by law or to which free access is not permitted by other means.

The practice of banning books is a form of censorship.

Motives for banning books include:political

legal

religious

moralcommercialSlide3

What is a challenged book?

A

challenged book is a book that a person or group has attempted to remove or restrict access to.  Challenges do not simply involve a person expressing a point of view; rather, they are an attempt to remove material from the curriculum or library, thereby restricting the access of others.

  Due to the commitment of librarians, teachers, parents, students and other concerned citizens, most challenges are unsuccessful and most materials are retained in the school curriculum or library collection. 

A

banning is the removal of those materials.Slide4

The Things

they carried

Tim O’Brien

The reader is introduced to Lieutenant Jimmy Cross, the leader of a platoon of soldiers in Vietnam. He carries physical reminders of Martha, the object of his unrequited love. A death in the squad causes Cross to reconsider his priorities, and, heartbroken, he burns all reminders of his life outside the war in order to stave off dangerous

distractions.Slide8

THE ABSOLUTELY TRUE

DIARY OF A PART-TIME INDIAN

Sherman

Alexie

The book follows one school year in the life of Junior, a fourteen-year-old

boy

living with his family on the Spokane Indian Reservation near 

Wellpinit, Washington; it is told in episodic diary style, moving from the start of the school year through the major holidays and through to the beginning of summer, and it includes both Junior's written record of his life and drawings he makes, some of them comically commenting on his situations, and other more seriously depicting important people in his life.Slide9

thE

BLUEST EYE

Toni Morrison

 The story is about a year in the life of a young black girl named

Pecola

who develops an inferiority complex due to her eye color

and skin appearance. It is set in Lorain, Ohio against the backdrop of America's Midwest during the years following the Great Depression. The point of view switches between the perspective of Claudia

MacTeer

, as a child and as an adult, and a third-person omniscient viewpoint.Slide10

WINNIE tHE

POOH

A.A.

Milne

Christopher

Robin

and his

boy animals, led by Winnie the Pooh, have

one

adventure

after another

—everything from filching honey from the

angry

bees to

welcoming

Tigger

(a very bouncy animal),

and consoling

Eeyore

(the gloomy donkey

).

Everything is related in extremely childish (but by no means "cutesy" terms), including bursts of poetry, rudimentary logic, and a great deal of remarkably in-depth character study. Each animal has a district personality: impulsive

Tigger

, neurotic

Eeyore

, no-nonsense Kanga, self-important Rabbit and Owl, humble Piglet, and, of course, direct and simple Pooh. The animals might be any group of typical siblings or playmates and teach, through their adventures, many real life lessons.Slide11
