Freedom to Read week – Feb. 21 to 27

bannedbooks2016This week is Freedom to Read week, a time to stop and reflect about our rights as readers. Intermediate classes were shown some of the banned and challenged books that are in our school library and were taught what about censorship. It was very informative and enlightening for some classes and the discussions were interesting. Some of the students were surprised to see that some of their favourite books and medal winners had been challenged or banned by individuals and/or organizations in the past in different regions of Canada and the USA.
