2 Comments on “Presentations

  1. Erin, I just read your excellent article “Just Open the Door, Banned Books (and a Librarian!) in the Classroom, from Spring 2007. I know it was ages ago but I have been trying to track down the banned books resources you mentioned in your article. I was particularly excited about the idea of a Mock Trial for Banned Books. I am a student at William Paterson University in the Media Specialist Program and I manage our school library and computer lab for grades K-6. Any help you can provide would be awesome!

    • Hi Karen! I’m looking through my files to find what I can for you. Feel free to email me any time, that way I can reply with my handouts and activities. Thanks for reading!
