What would you do (as a teacher) if you weren’t afraid?
Being inspired by this past week, without being afraid of losing credibility or even my job, I would include more banned books in my curriculum.
Books that I’ve taught in the past that have been banned:
- Looking for Alaska
- The Crucible (play)
- Slaughterhouse Five
- The Perks of Being a Wallflower
- Their Eyes Were Watching God
- Nickel and Dimed
Pretty rebellious anyway, huh?
Books I would like to add to my curriculum:
- The Handmaid’s Tale
- Brave New World
- The Absolute True Diary of a Part-Time Indian
- Will Grayson, Will Grayson
