(2016) Marion County Text Book validation of objectionable materials found in other school districts

Marion County Text Book validation of materials found in other school districts
This confirms ” at least some” of books with objectionable obscene material found in Collier, Brevard and Volusia Counties are in Marion

Novels in Question: Our school libraries have the following titles:

Angela’s Ashes

The Women of Brewster Place

The Awakening

Clockwork Orange

The Bluest Eye

Beloved

The Truth About Alice

Dreaming in Cuban

Killing Mr. Griffin

Almost Perfect

 However, only The Awakening, The Bluest Eye, Body Rituals Among the Nacirema, and Clockwork Orange are used in classes.

The Awakening, and Clockwork Orange are read over the summer by International Baccalaureate (IB) Students at Lake Weir High, and The Bluest Eye  is read in IB English Literature. Vanguard High School IB and Advanced Placement (AP) students sometimes choose these three books as independent reading to use as comparative work in their IB and AP Literature Classes.

Dunnellon High School AP English Literature classes read: The Awakening, The Bluest Eye, and Beloved.

Forest High AP English Language classes read: Body Rituals Among the Nacirema.

 

Here are the books we use in Social Studies 6-12 with the ISBN.  We do not have a book in K-5.  This year K-5 is using Studies Weekly, a newspaper and digital based curriculum.

Looking at the list, these are the titles I think may be a match based on title and publisher alone.  We have the Florida edition and the titles do not denote the Florida editions so I do not know if they are the same.
