Banned Books Week is upon us!


Banned Books Week a Dorman from Cathy Nelson

Slide 1:  Look at how we are celebrating banned books week at Dorman

Slide 2:  We are advertising our activities on a sign in the library, but will upload it to the website and the Cavaliers Read blog.

Slide 3:  We used recycled paper for the display.

Slide 4:  There is a quiz online for anyone who wishes to participate. 

Slide 5:  We will have six books wrapped with strategic tears so students can try to GUESS the book that has been banned or challenged in other schools (but not our school!!).

Slide 6:  Our art department is creating a “wall of flames” to stand in front of for your photo op reading (of course) a banned book!!

Slide 7:   Here are the six books we want students to identify.  To help, we added a summary/description of each book. It’s pretty tough!!  But all the books are available in our Dorman Library.

Slide 8:  To make it easier her are summaries of the hidden books.  

Slide 9:  The next few slides are close-ups of the books.  Can you guess the title?

Slide 10 - 16:  Can you guess the title? 

Slide 17:  Our Banned Books Week Poster reminds us to stop and think how lucky we are at DHS.  

Slide 18:  Displayed in our library right beside our banned books week poster reminder you will find page after page of titles that have been banned or challenged in libraries all across the U.S.  Luckily, our library has MANY of these titles. We believe in the freedom to read and the freedom to choose.  

19:  If students choose to participate in any of our Banned Books Week activities, they might be rewarded with Cavalatte coupons, DHS Café discounts, free books of your choosing, and an invitation to join us at the Teen Read Week breakfast planned for October 19, 2012.
