Students will need to obtain a copy of the book. Available at most libraries, local booksellers, and online retailers.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Banned books deal with difficult subjects such as violence, racism, underage drinking, profanity, witchcraft, gender identity, anti or pro religion. Families should research the books before enrolling to determine if the books are appropriate for their child.

As facilitator for this class we will address these subjects using critical thinking and context so learners will understand why the problematic and/or inaccurate ways of referencing people is not appropriate. Showing learners examples of biased language in a safe space will aid learners in developing their critical thinking skills so that they can identify bias in books on their own. 

FROM: Outschool...
While our open community is our greatest source of strength, it also brings challenges. It is important to us that Outschool is a safe space for our users. Our members should treat each other without bias or prejudice across all pillars of diversity including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, religion, and gender identity.
