Purdue literacy education does not support censoring literature: we support the freedom to read and learn. This section is a resource for banned and challenged books. Using the resources below, we encourage educators to read and share diverse books, as well as demand that our students from diverse backgrounds possess the right to learn about their own cultures, identities, and experiences. Thanks to the efforts of instructor Inna Abramova, the current banned books teaching resources were created by undergraduate students in the course: Literacy in the Intermediate Grades.
