Banned speech paper | American history homework help

Each student will select a book or movie that has been banned somewhere in the United States. After reading the book or viewing the movie, you will do some research to determine the pertinent history surrounding the controversy.

A key component of this assignment is that the project MUST be about a work that was banned somewhere in the USA. This can be in a state, a city, a county, or even the library in one particular school. As long as it was banned somewhere in the USA, you’ll be good to go. Some works that students have chosen in the past include To Kill a Mockingbird, Huckleberry Finn, The Moon Is Blue, Thirteen Reasons Why, The Handmaid’s Tale, Beloved, James and the Giant Peach, Scarface, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, 1984, Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Kite Runner, The Grapes of Wrath, The Last Temptation of Christ, Our Bodies Ourselves, Of Mice and Men, Catcher in the Rye, etc. This is by no means an exhaustive list! Feel free to choose any book or movie that fits the requirements of the assignment!
