Teaching Challenged and Banned Books
Author Chris Crutcher, an adult of young adult novels has been a crusader for the right of children and teens to read freely. A number of his books have been challenged over the years. A Guide to Teaching Challenged and Banned Books is available at his web site along with a history of challenges to his books. Also interesting is CC Answers the Censors, his response to the people who would remove his books (and others) from schools and libraries.
