Political Resistance in the Current Age | Duchess Harris, Myra Faye Turner

Pickpick

(2021) Last one (today) I promise. Here's another from the list that Matt Krause wants banned from libraries. It's a notably even-handed discussion of recent political resistance movements, for an elementary-school audience. By "even-handed" I mean it includes impartial background on protests across the political spectrum, from the Women's March and protests against the Iraq War, to the Tea Party and protests against the ACA.

Readergrrl I‘d like to say that I‘m astonished by this, but I‘m not. I fear deeply for the next generation. 4w

Here's another from the Krause list of books too dangerous for libraries. It has two parts: first, a message with bold layout explaining that there exist black authors, artists, athletes, and more, and that their lives have mattered and continue to matter; then, a collection of biographical sketches of 116 black historical figures. Dangerous stuff.

Just saying: Read #BannedBooks

(2021) I'm not in the target audience, but I picked it up because it's on the list of books that Texas legislator Matt Krause wants to remove from libraries. What's so offensive about it? Well, there's ....

I mean, read #BannedBooks, y'all.

#ThingsWeHaveInCommon first pick is Be Dazzled, definitely helped that it‘s on our good friend Matt Krause‘s list of 850 books he wants to ban! #BannedBooks

(2021) Three teenagers wake up in and around a damaged spaceship, not knowing how they got there or why. Adventures and romance ensue. It's light (mostly) and moves fast (always) and I enjoyed it.

It's also another from the list of books that Texas lawmaker Matt Krause wants to remove from libraries. So thanks Matt for the rec and bless your little heart.

Read #BannedBooks , y'all!

Look what‘s next up in Maya‘s 8th grade ELA class?

I love her school. #bannedbooks #readbannedbooks

marleed I‘m thrilled she gets to read this as a class project. It gives me hope! 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @marleed me too! Now I just hope she feels safe in the discussions, considering many of her ancestors (on hubby‘s side) were killed in the Holocaust. Her ELA teacher sometimes forgets that there are students in the classroom with closer connections to things. There was an issue in Jan during class of the YRE of Omnivore‘s Dilemma when she didn‘t realize her language around food was problematic and triggering for students with an ED. 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @Sarahreadstoomuch I plan on reading it too! 2mo
