Battle Over the Books [electronic resource]: Censorship in American Schools

Ivanhoe Communications
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
John Scopes went on trial for teaching Darwin's theory of evolution; nearly 70 years later, an Illinois English teacher was confronted by protesters who demanded that J. D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye "not be assigned for reading"-adding that their demand should not be interpreted as "censorship or banning books." Whatever it's called, it means that books are under attack-from "Cinderella" to Huckleberry Finn. This program looks at how teachers can prepare themselves against attack, and looks at those who, in the name of religion or equality or whatever cause, are aiming the censor's gun at teachers and books.
