Should music videos be censored to protect our youth?

Posted on

Should we be sheltering our youth from these negative influences? Or, should we allow freedom of expression and the right to view this inappropriate content?

The Wretched Stone by Chris Van Allsburg

Posted on

This great book poses more questions than it answers! The question I want you to try and answer is: What could the “Wretched Stone” be a symbol of or represent in our everyday lives? Supply evidence from the text and justify that evidence with your own ideas.

I look forward to reading your ideas.
