  • Classics As The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn
    523 words
    Thesis: The banning of Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn from public schools and libraries is unjustified. Mark Twain wrote The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn long after the Civil War during a time when slavery was no longer instituted in the United States.

  • Strand Of Silk
    778 words
    Do you know the process that goes into making silk Many people over look this fine, luxurious garment. When I first heard that we had to do an I-search, I was overwhelmed by the choices. I made many changes before finally settling on this topic. When I first though of how to make silk, I didn't think that it would be that hard with the right tools. Although I knew that the fibers came from the silk worm's cocoon I still didn't know how they got it unraveled. I also thought that they only made si...
  • Time My Reading Habits
    552 words
    My Reading History If one were to look at my varied reading habits, they would be struck by the diversity and over all unusual ness of my mind's library. I hardly remember the plot of the first book I read, but it was called Lonesome Dove. It wasn't the actual first book I read, but I don't really count the McGregor Readers from kindergarten. I read it in first grade because of my Grandmother's fascination in the T.V. mini-series that was playing during the time. I wanted to be able to talk to h...

  • Censorship Of Books In School Libraries
    1,517 words
    Censorship in School Libraries The most debatable and controversial form of censorship today is the banning of books in school libraries. Banning books that educate students is wrong and selfish. Censorship of books in school libraries is neither uncommon nor an issue of the past. Books with artistic and cultural worth are still challenged constantly by those who want to control what others read. The roots of bigotry and illiteracy that fuel efforts to censor books and free expression are unacce...

Bloom claims that althoug...

  • Materials And Facilities The Library
    971 words
    To Judge a Book by its Cover For as long as the quill has been able to catch thoughts on paper, writers have created socially disturbing material. Years ago, the acceptability of a book was either met by beheading the writer, or honoring him with a seat at the queen's table. How times have changed. America, home to freedom of intellect, speech, and expression, has created an environment that allows objectionable material within easy reach of young children. The framers of the Constitution could ...
