Paper Towns and Looking for Alaska Challenged

fishingboatproceeds:

Earlier today I received an email from a high school English teacher in Strasburg, Colorado who plans to teach an elective Young Adult literature course. A group of parents created a petition to “cleanse” the book list, claiming that the majority of the books on the curriculum, “are profane, pornographic, violent, criminal, crass, crude, vile, and will result in the irreparable erosion of my students’ moral character.”

Paper Towns and Looking for Alaska have been targeted in particular, and the press attended the most recent school board meeting. The motion has been tabled for the next meeting at 7:00 pm on April 9th at Strasburg High School: 56729 e. Colorado Ave, Strasburg, CO 80136.

Please join me in emailing letters of support of the teacher at Strasburg who has heroically stood by her curriculum and stood alone at School Board meetings defending the books. It’s important to keep your letter as civil as possible, even if this kind of thing turns you into a giant squid of anger.

Letters should be addressed "To the School Board" and emailed to StrasburgYALiteratureCourse@gmail.com. It would also be a great help to attend the next School Board meeting if you live in the area.

I am extremely grateful to those who have come out in support of my books on the various occasions they have been challenged, who understand that I am not out to corrupt teenagers, and who further understand the importance of reading books critically and thoughtfully as a whole, rather than focusing on individual scenes ripped from their context. Thanks for supporting my books, and thanks for being awesome.

Full proposed curriculum below the jump.

hey you! 

sooooo… i know that you don’t want to go to school tomorrow, 

but

if it makes you feel any better

all you have to do is survive three weeks 

and then 

it’s winter break

and that means

you get to sit inside, watch netflix, and cover yourself in blankets!!

YOU CAN DO IT BABE 

I BELIEVE IN YOU AND I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH

Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking by Nathan Myhrvold

CRAZY FUCKING AWESOME. 

ALSO CRAZY EXPENSIVE. 

IT’S MOSTLY A SCIENTIFIC ANALYSIS OF THE COOKING PROCESS. IT GIVES LOADS OF KNOWLEDGE ON HOW AND WHY THINGS DO THE THINGS THEY DO, BUT GIVES… BASICALLY ZERO RECIPES THAT THE AVERAGE KITCHEN COULD MAKE. 

SO IF YOU LIKE SCIENCE, THIS IS GREAT!

IF YOU JUST WANT TO COOK SHIT, IT’S PROBABLY NOT FOR YOU~

Oh hey, if anyone is interested in this sort of thing but also doesn’t want to drop wads of cash, edx currently has a science and cooking course which should theoretically cover the same things. It’s free, easy to sign up, and also, you don’t have to do the assignments if you’re just interested in watching the lectures or reading the transcripts or w/e. Also the hands-on assignments are designed to be p basic and easy to complete with stuff you have in your kitchen already and maybe a couple other things to get at the store. (I think; I haven’t done any yet.)

Disclaimer: I personally don’t really like the lecture format, which is broken up into a series of short videos that altogether are about an hour long; idk, it just really pisses me off to have to click through. If you’re like me, there’s ur warning, but if that sounds aces to you, have fun : >

*HAPPY NOISES BECAUSE I FORGOT THAT SITE EXISTED*

"Most things about me are hard to explain, I guess, like how I’m mostly delusional and live in a half-imaginary world but am also a realist to the core. I’m just a bunch of contradictions most of the time and I don’t like it, but I also do."
