Keep Them Reading

Scales On Censorship [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Keep Them Reading by ReLeah Cossett Lent,Gloria Pipkin Book Resume:

Keep Them Reading is a concise handbook for teachers, librarians, administrators, and district personnel about how to prevent censorship in a school or district—and what to do if it happens. Written by two award-winning authors who have devoted much of their careers to anti-censorship work, this book discusses the overall importance of reading in all academic endeavors and demonstrates how challenges and censorship can derail even the best literacy program. Each chapter contains practical tools, advice, and resources for building understanding about issues of intellectual freedom and for creating a plan to help all parties work through challenges before they turn into damaging censorship incidents. The last chapter contains advice from authors who have dealt with censorship, such as Judy Blume, and experts on the subject, such as Joan Bertin, executive director of the National Coalition Against Censorship. Book Features: Procedures for dealing with censorship challenges before they arise. Protocols to help teachers and librarians meet challenges and resist censorship. Samples of actual letters teachers can use to defend their selection of a text. Detailed suggestions for conducting meetings with parents and district personnel. Helpful lists of books dealing with censorship, relevant court cases, and national organizations offering support and resources. “The first academic freedom book of 2013 . . . an excellent one.” —Read the article on the Huffington Post Education Blog “There are no easy answers, but there are lessons to be learned from the ‘good fight’ of classroom teachers who have been victims of the censorship wars. . . . Keep Them Reading offers sage advice and guidance about what to do when the censor calls.” —From the Foreword by Pat Scales, past president, ALSC American Library Association “Sooner or later every reading and literature teacher will encounter someone who wants to limit students' experiences with a text Keep Them Reading lays out a very common-sense pro-active mechanism that is both respectful of parents and community values and students' and teachers' rights. Every teacher and administrator should read this handbook and then establish the processes that Lent and Pipkin recommend.” —Nancy G. Patterson, co-editor, Language Arts Journal of Michigan, Associate Professor, Literacy Studies, College of Education, Grand Valley State University “The real heroes are the librarians and teachers who, at no small risk to themselves, refuse to lie down and play dead for censors.” —Bruce Coville, bestselling author “The topic of this book—censorship—can strike fear in any educator's heart. So it is a delightful surprise that what seeps through these pages is love: love for the families whose concerns for their children, Pipkin and Lent remind us, are occasions for respectful engagement; and, above all, a deep love for books and the readers who are comforted, challenged, transported, and transformed by them.” —Maja Wilson, author of Rethinking Rubrics in Writing Assessment

Government Internet Censorship Measures and International Law

Scales On Censorship [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Government Internet Censorship Measures and International Law by I-Ching Chen Book Resume:

Internet governance is a simple term without a simple definition. In the name of Internet sovereignty, nations have begun to implement various regulations to control the flow of information within or across their virtual territorial boundaries. The unique interconnected and multilateral characteristics of the Internet renders it impossible for one nation alone to provide adequate solutions to managing the Internet. The author argues that many of the issues related to Internet governance should be allocated to international institutions and a nation's sovereign power over the Internet should be bounded by its commitments and responsibilities under international law. In the absence of a coherent regulatory framework, this book examines whether the existing international legal systems are sufficiently generic to accommodate the challenges brought about by technological developments.

Censorship and Silencing

Scales On Censorship [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Censorship and Silencing by Robert Post Book Resume:

Censorship was once a predictable topic, dividing liberals and conservatives down the middle on issues like obscenity and national security. Today, the debate over the regulation of speech offers no such easy dichotomy, with feminists joining forces with religious fundamentalists to control pornography, and abortion rights advocates seeking to restrict clinic demonstrations while prolife groups defend their freedom to picket. Underlying this trend is a fundamental intellectual shift--exemplified by the work of Michel Foucault--that holds that the state is not the only agent of censorship. The thirteen contributors here explore the topic of censorship from the viewpoint of numerous disciplines and viewpoints.

The Censor's Library

Scales On Censorship [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Censor's Library by Nicole Moore Book Resume:

The first comprehensive examination of Australian book censorship, this enlightening and enthralling discussion is based on Nicole Moore's discovery of the secret "censor's library" in the National Archives. Combining scholarship with the narrative tension of a thriller, the book exposes the scandalous history of censorship in Australia. Built and maintained to ensure the books it held were not read--from the "Kama Sutra "to Lawrence's "Lady Chatterley's Lover "and Joyce's "Ulysses--"the censor's library was kept to negate the function of libraries: 793 boxes kept safe and intact for six decades. Through courtroom dramas and internecine bureaucracy, stolen libraries and police raids, authorial scandals and moral panics, this is a provocative account on a subject that continues to attract heated debate.

Theodore Dreiser

Scales On Censorship [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Theodore Dreiser by Theodore Dreiser Book Resume:

Hardly shy about himself or his work, Theodore Dreiser knew the value of publicity. Over four decades he often consented to interviews, answering questions about his fiction, his politics, and even previous interviews. Throughout his life Dreiser raised a storm of protest with his realistic novels, blistered public figures and other authors with untempered criticism, scorned pieties masking brutality in law and economics, and expressed a few contradictions of his own. This volume collects for the first time more than seventy interviews. As a group, they show Dreiser dealing with an array of literary and social issues, as well as his lifelong incapacity to mince words. Dreiser is revealed in these interviews as a public figure of epic proportions.

Freedom of the Screen

Scales On Censorship [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Freedom of the Screen by Laura Wittern-Keller Book Resume:

At the turn of the twentieth century, the proliferation of movies attracted not only the attention of audiences across America but also the apprehensive eyes of government officials and special interest groups concerned about the messages disseminated by the silver screen. Between 1907 and 1926, seven states—New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, Kansas, Maryland, and Massachusetts—and more than one hundred cities authorized censors to suppress all images and messages considered inappropriate for American audiences. Movie studios, hoping to avoid problems with state censors, worrying that censorship might be extended to the federal level, and facing increased pressure from religious groups, also jumped into the censoring business, restraining content through the adoption of the self-censoring Production Code, also known as the Hays code.But some industry outsiders, independent distributors who believed that movies deserved the free speech protections of the First Amendment, brought legal challenges to censorship at the state and local levels. Freedom of the Screen chronicles both the evolution of judicial attitudes toward film restriction and the plight of the individuals who fought for the right to deliver provocative and relevant movies to American audiences. The path to cinematic freedom was marked with both achievements and roadblocks, from the establishment of the Production Code Administration, which effectively eradicated political films after 1934, to the landmark cases over films such as The Miracle (1948), La ronde (1950), and Lady Chatterley’s Lover (1955) that paved the way for increased freedom of expression. As the fight against censorship progressed case by case through state courts and the U.S. Supreme Court, legal authorities and the public responded, growing increasingly sympathetic toward artistic freedom. Because a small, unorganized group of independent film distributors and exhibitors in mid-twentieth-century America fought back against what they believed was the unconstitutional prior restraint of motion pictures, film after 1965 was able to follow a new path, maturing into an artistic medium for the communication of ideas, however controversial. Government censors would no longer control the content of America’s movie screens. Laura Wittern-Keller’s use of previously unexplored archival material and interviews with key figures earned her the researcher of the year award from the New York State Board of Regents and the New York State Archives Partnership Trust. Her exhaustive work is the first to discuss more than five decades of film censorship battles that rose from state and local courtrooms to become issues of national debate and significance. A compendium of judicial action in the film industry, Freedom of the Screen is a tribute to those who fought for the constitutional right of free expression and paved the way for the variety of films that appear in cinemas today.
