Banned Book Week and the First Amendment: Exploring the Freedom to Read and Exposing the Dangers of Censorship
7/27/15
This thoughtful cross-curricular piece was inspired by the American Library Association's Banned Book Week Challenge, challenging students to interpret the First Amendment and multiple perspectives on banned books in order to assess the dangers censorship poses and to expose the value in the freedom to read. Preparation included research and reading, critical thinking, parent involvement, video production, and analysis of tweets from a variety of sources. Under the guidance of their parents, students chose a banned or challenged book to read, and used this knowledge and the study of the First Amendment to produce videos of their own design to expose the dangers of censorship or celebrate the freedom to read.

Submitted by T.S. King Arts-Technology Magnet in Los Angeles Unified for the 2015 Digital Voice Awards, this project won for Secondary History/Social Science Video Production from a Student Team and Best Overall Middle School.
