Banned Books Week
I created a special bookshelf display for Banned Books Week, only to discover I don't have that many challenged/banned books in my classroom library. I had to borrow some Harry Potter and Twilight series books from a colleague! In some classes, students saw the display and asked about it before I mentioned anything. They were all interested to know what it is and what books have been challenged/banned (and why).
The ALA web site is a great resource for Banned Books Week! It helped me explain why I care and why they should care about banned and challenged books.
