1165 Class 3 – Work & Blog

Start here

Advertisements

Hello 1165,

Two classes down! Only 12 more to go! I put in a call about the room, we will see what happens. Hopefully, as the weather cools down so will the room.

House Business:

If you have not heard from your TA, check your other emails/spam, etc. If still nothing, contact Rodwell at rodwellta@gmail.com, ask him for your TA’s contact. Then YOU contact them giving them your blog info.

Remember, all posts are due before 12pm Wednesday.

Any and all extra credits are due by week 13.

I sent out a blog assignment that is due in mid-October. You can start it as soon as possible or wait, but the work is there for you. Hope you love the album as much as I do.

Readings for Class 3:

Rodman’s Chapters 3 & 4.

2nd Blog Assignment:

Read the following article and watch the video/article –

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/answer-sheet/wp/2016/12/03/the-top-10-books-most-challenged-in-schools-and-libraries/?utm_term=.a0fa2d23f733

What to Write About?

What are your thoughts on banned books? Do you believe books should be banned in elementary, JHS, High School or college?

Have you read any of these books? Thinking back – do you understand why they were challenged?

There are some obvious question here — should a book with offensive language or racial slurs be read in school? Who should get to decide what books are allowed/banned?

Look at the challenge by reason chart – what do you think? Are these valid?

Why do you think parents want books banned? Can you put yourself in a parent’s shoes and understand why they would want to ban books?

What are your thoughts on censorship?

Don’t just limit your blog to the questions above, explore the work. Don’t just agree, say yes or no… give me the WHY.

Anything else to add – feel free!

Word Count: Around 500 words

Have a great rest of your week.

Professor Dunphy
