Week 5, Day 2
Objective: Students use comprehension skills to analyze how texts work together in various forms to impact meaning. Students will continue to apply earlier standards with greater depth in increasingly more complex texts.  Evaluate how messages presented in media reflect social and cultural views in ways different from traditional texts.  Evaluate the objectivity of coverage of the same event in various types of media.  Discuss influences that cause some books to be banned.
  1. Bell Work:  What is your opinion on censorship?  Is it ever okay?  If so, when?  If not, why not?  What is your opinion of banned and challenged books?  Why do you think some books are banned?  Explain your reasoning.  
    1. In your spiral, at least 40 words, and use at least two SAT words
  2. Discuss Bell Work as a class
  3. On your own, or as a class (however Mr. Galvan wants to do it) Watch Banned Book Videos
    1. Lauren Myracle Interview
    2. 100 Banned Books
    3. BLEEP
    4. Banned Books
    5. "Religious Nuts in Texas..."
    6. Katie Couric on Banned Books
  4. Banned & Challenged Classics
  5. Challenged Classics with Reasons
    1. Using the lists on the website, make a list of 5 books you'd like to read and 5 you've already read.  If you come up with more...that is okay!
  6. If time allows, look for videos on YouTube that are about Banned Book Week.  
  7. By the way, I'm STILL working on the online textbook...not having a very fun time getting everything straightened out.  Hopefully, after 3 calls to the company, we are FINALLY getting somewhere!!!!  Just wanted you to know that I haven't forgotten about it!!!!!!!!!
