Topic: Censorship in High Schools
Purpose: Why should great literature be kept from young adults in need of education? Are high school students ready for the material present in some literature/novels? How do we expect teenagers to grow up if we shelter them from books that speak of the truth in the world?
Audience: H.S Teachers, Students, Authors (famous and inspiring) The audience is passionate about the argument for and against censorship. It has been an ongoing debate for years.
Context: The Controversy- Parents disturbed by material, teachers fight to teach the great words of great authors, School board put in the middle of the fight, Students too sheltered? Fear to sparking conversation amongst young adults.
