Banning Huck Finn

Students 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 instructional activity by researching the life and works of Mark Twain.
