His main point is that he isn't a librarian and that he doesn't think it's his place to ban books. So he doesn't mind that his book is banned and he doesn't believe it's explicit but he sees how some people may have twisted it. I agree with his point. Also I think some authors may be offended while others really couldn't care less, like John green. If anything, it just makes his book more popular.
I agree. By banning his book it makes it more popular because people want to see why it's banned.
I like how you said it makes the book more popular. I agree with that completely. It would make people want to read it to see for themselves why it was banned.
Yah I agree with you. And what you said about some people twisting the content sometimes, and making the book more popular anyway.
I like what you said about how people twist it they just make it worse than it really is.
I like how you said it makes his book more popular
After finding out that it was banned, it makes me want to read it. I can't imagine how many other people feel the same way.
I like how you mentioned that even though the books are banned, they honestly just make the book more popular.
Green's main point is to leave the banning to the teachers and librarians as that is their job. I agree, they have went to college and know what and how to teach, leave it to them! I think they might be proud that not only is their book popular, but it is bringing challenge, which is the point of books.
Exactly, nowmore people want to read this book and see for themselves.
I like how you noted that books challenge ideas and that it is a good thing.
Is is that people that read the book don't read it for bad content but for the joy of the journey of the main character and to relate it to your own life. And I do agree with what is he saying because I read books for the excitement and thrills not the ill content. I bet he feeling really upset because now a group of kids don't have the chance to walk that adventure with the main character.
I agree! When we read a book, we go through the journey with the characters.
I like how you said books are for the adventure and that banning them can take that away.
A lot of times people who challenge books read from one page that isn't appropriate. Hey don't read the book as a whole and they don't see what it connects to. By banning books they take away the challenges and emotions that come from them. I agree. You can learn a lot about other people and things you might not normally do by reading. I think an author would feel kind of hurt about their book being banned. In a lot of cases they don't mean for it to be how some readers are taking it.
I could definitely see how some authors would be hurt by their book being banned.
I like how you pointed out how they read one page and not the book as a whole and see what the page connects to.
I think his main point was that after reading something that books get banned for, like jumping on trains or joining a gang, the reader is not going to actually do that. That's not the main purpose of a book. An author might either be offended or kind of honored for his/her book to be banned. It depends on the reason and the type of person the author is.
I agree with you that the main point of books is not to teach readers to go out and do dangerous things
I agree with you that the readers aren't going to do what the book did.
John Green's main point in the video is that books shouldn't be banned. I do agree with his point because everyone has different views on a novel and just because a few people don't like the book doesn't mean that it should be banned from the rest of us. I feel like an author would feel some sort of hate when their own book gets banned because that was clearly not what they intended for their book to convey about those emotions or scenes.
I agree with what you said, just because some people don't like one page of the book doesn't mean they should ban it from everyone.
I agree with you that the author didn't mean to intend some of the things hat people find offensive.
I love your reasoning behind not banning books! Very well written 👍🏼
John Green's main point was that books keep social order and that they make us better. I agree because books are what shares ideas that makes and keep social order. I would'nt care to much because a lot of good books are banned.
I wouldn't care either. It just means my book is popular enough to be banned.
I like what you said about how a lot of good books are banned. If they weren't good then they wouldn't have anyone reading them to get banned and offend people.
I definitely agree that books make us better and how many of the banned books are well written/interesting.
That most challenged books become challenged because people read a passage of the novel and don't continue on to know what the author is really talking about. Yes I agree. People read one thing they don't like and assume the rest of the books is like this or worse. I think an author would feel a little offended because they worked so hard to write this book that they want people to like and people don't like it so much they try to get it out of schools and libraries because they are so offended.
I agree. Authors put so much effort into their books and they have a meaning and purpose behind them and when people don't like their books they could get offended.
I agree. People shouldn't read just one passage and assume, they need to read farther in and see how good it is.
His main point is that we should leave the libararians and teachers to ban books because they were taught what's appropriate and what's not appropriate for students to read. I agree with his point. I think they might be glad that their book is popular and that it's just bringing a challenge which is a part of life and books
I think his some of his main points were that just because books contain certain content, that the content doesn't corrupt us and it doesn't influence us as much as people think, in a way to do things that happen in the book. He also points outs that people who have read the entire book have a better perspective on the context of the book and why things are said. I agree with what he was talking about, I liked how he used the example of Divergent and how when people read it th y don't just go and decide to jump on trains. I think authors might feel, offended or feel like they have to justify themselves.
I like how you said the books don't corrupt us. They open up doors to ideas but don't change who we are as a person.
I like how you said that the people who have read the entire book have a better perspective on it as opposed to others who have only caught "glimpses" of the novel.
That that you shouldn't just ban books because someone doesn't like what the author is implying. That and people don't disagree with the books that are being banned. I agree with Green because you shouldn't take someone else word for things until you read it and understand what it is actually implying. I thtink an author would be crushed that they had taken so much time to write a book so that kids can enjoy it and it got banned because someone reads into it to much even though the author didn't mean to imply it.
I agree that you shouldn't just take somebody's word for it and ban the book without reading it
I like how you said we need personal experience before we judge.
He is saying that people should consider the community rather than themselves before trying to challenge or even ban a book. I agree, because books let you feel different emotions that the main character might feel. Those people who challenge the books are taking all that away from everyone else who "escape" in the book. The author might feel pretty mad because he or she didn't write that book so that other people could ban it.
I like how you said that they should consider the community and not just themselves before trying to challenge a book.
I like how you said that we should consider the community instead of an individual.
That a books shouldn't be banned just because of one part or because one persons doesn't like it. I agree that a book shouldn't be banned because one thing tipped one person off. The author might feel he/she did something wrong when they didn't. That worked a long time on writing and thinking about the book, and I think that shouldn't be taken away.
I like how you worded the passage
I think his main point is that if you read the whole book and not just the one page that they think the book should be banned for then the reader would realize that the book actually is talking about something completely different. Yes I agree with him because it's like if someone was trying to give you directions and you only listen to part of them you're not going to go to the same place as you would if you listened to the whole set of directions. I think the author would feel kind of annoyed because they didn't even try to finish the book they just assumed that it was a bad book at that point and that no one else should read it.
I think his main point is that people try to get books banned without actually reading the whole book I agree with his point because people make biased desicions about reading and understanding the ideas behind the book. I think the authors feeling are hurt.
His main point (I think) is that books are banned mostly on the ideas or actions during a single passage/section. Also, the people challenging the book only really read that one passage/section and don't read the book as a whole, which leads people to make impartial decisions. One other thing that he brings up that people reading the book don't just take the ideas of a singular passage and run with it normally. They take the idea of entire story. So what I'm saying is that he wants people to make more entire opinions and not to limit the minds of others. I completely agree with his point because you always should make your decisions after you have all the information and limiting information to the mind is like limiting your intake of food, your brain starves. I feel like an author would feel proud of his or her writing because it has enough content to be interesting along with being banned.
John Green said that even though a book may have a bad thing in it, the reader won't want to go do that bad thing after reading it. He also said that the books being banned are based off of one persons point of view. I agree with his points. I think they would be happy because the people would be curious and want to read their book.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
