Teaching Resource on Censorship

Don C. Barnett presents a teaching plan called Censorship: Drawing The Line. The page is hosted by the University of Saskatchewan College of Education and it appears to be at a high school level. It is of value since it covers Canadian issues.

The purpose of the lesson is: "To explore the issue of censorship through the values question: To what extent should society censor citizens' expression of thoughts?" Included are some great questions and activities for students, as well as suggested ways of evaluating. Unfortunately, a number of links such as the Canadian Censorship Time Line are outdated. Other than that, this is a great resource for Canadian Secondary School Teachers and it could be modified for younger students.
