My goal in this research was to find ideas, teaching aids, or lesson plans to help teach students about Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. I was interested in this because it is an area of focus for one of my classmates Bri Zabriske. To do so I went to the MLA bibliography online database. This database is a detailed bibliography of articles, books, book chapters and dissertations. The electronic version dates back to the 1920s and is home to 1.8 million indexed works.
RefWorks. Such a great tool for those who are in school or put together scholarly works.)
This article isn't exactly the angle or medium that I was looking for from the start, but I think it presents an interesting way to teach Huckleberry Finn. Douglas shows how by showing that a book was once censored from public schools drives kids to want to read it to see why. I think that this article has validity because it points out that a natural curiosity (even if its morbid) will always supersede and artificial sort.
