Banning Huck Finn

Learners read an article about the decision by some schools to bann "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn". As a class, they discuss if it is appropriate to use the "n" word. In groups, they share their opinions on whether they should be able to read books with racial slurs. They end the lesson by researching the life and works of Mark Twain.

As an online high school teacher, LP has helped me tremendously with extra resources! I have been able to use additional supplemental materials from here and students are able to gain more knowledge and a different perspective.
