V. Works Cited
By banning books, it creates a very negative effect on kids and possibly even eliminate the teachings of life lessons for students.
going through life without the knowledge of what else is out there besides "rainbows and lollipops" can be pretty detrimental, as kids would not be able to handle life too well in the real world, if the whole time when they were younger they were being protected from all the "bad things"
many people decide to do what they think is best for the safety of children, but sometimes it harms them in more ways than helping them.
books shouldn't be banned from society.
On the other hand,
some books have suggestive content or profanity.
when you keep the so-called negative parts of the books in, kids gain knowledge of what and what's not good to do, say, or act.
books should not be banned from society. Books are peoples way to escape reality for just a moment time.
While books shouldn't be banned from society,
some have a lot profanity.
this would be taking away rights of citizens through the First Amendment. (1) The first Amendment says that we have the freedom of speech and press, not the freedom of reading what others allow us to read.
many books have suggestive content that might encourage bad behavior.
And be that as it may,
(2) banning or censoring books doesn't allow kids to have their own censorship and let them think about what they should and shouldn't do.
Not to mention,
(3) it also ruins the opportunity for the parent to teach their kids about censorship themselves.
books should not be banned because it allows kids, or any body for that matter, to be able to escape reality. (4) Some kids may not have a good life at home and when they read it allows them to forget about things for a while. This can apply to school too, if someone doesn't have a lot of friends, they are able to dive into the book and feel like they are apart of something bigger.
Another example is,
(5) literature is art, it's how author's express themselves, and that would take that opportunity away from them. Taking that away from an author is like taking away their ability to speak.
2. Analyze your writing using these keying techniques:
•Label the claim and counterclaim in your introduction. Are they supported by the evidence in your body paragraphs?
•Find your topic sentences and underline them. Are your points stated in clear topic sentences?
•Number each piece of evidence. Do you have solid evidence that supports your points?
•Highlight each transition. Are your ideas connected by transitional words, phrases, or thoughts?
3.Look for any areas you can make improvements. Ask yourself:
•Is my information clear and easy to follow?
•Did I use enough transitions to keep my speech flowing from one idea to the next?
4.Try reading your body paragraphs aloud to see how they sound. If you find places where you need stronger support or your ideas need a smoother connection, go back and make revisions.
5.Wrap up your argument with a strong conclusion. Remember, in the conclusion, you tell your audience: •"what you told them" but briefly
•remind them of the importance of your topic
•restate your claim addressing any counterclaims
"Throughout history, nations, peoples, and governments have censored writers and their works on political, religious, sexual, and social grounds. Although the literary merit of the majority of these books has been proven time and time again, censorship efforts are still in place today. From Animal Farm to The Grapes of Wrath, The Koran to The Talmud, Ulysses to the Harry Potter series, The Canterbury Tales to The Bell Jar, this revised edition examines the many struggles these books faced in order to be read"-
120 Banned Books: Censorship Histories of World Literature
People should be allowed to read whatever they want, as long as they know what they are reading, and are mature enough to handle it. If they are kids or teenagers, if they have their parents consent, that would also be okay. When you choose to read a book, you would have to know what you are reading about, and if you know the content in the book, then it is your choice to read it or not. Banning a book will not solve the problem, as people will just keep fighting harder and harder to find a way to read the book. The Harry Potter Series, that was stated in the quote, is in many libraries and were even made into movies!
Although many books have profanity, suggestive content, and violence
that doesn't mean they should be banned!
Literature is art, kids need to escape every day life sometimes, parents need to be able to teach their kids about censorship on their own!
Given these points,
it's impossible to keep people from reading what they want to read, it's extremely import to not ban or censor books, as it would do more harm than good!
