In this Webquest, students explore the topic of censorship. They explore articles concerning the effects of censorship on news reporting and the music industry. Then they select one specific topic and search for other sources presenting differing viewpoints about the same topic. They will condense this information and report their findings to the class.

Introduction

    Is everything that happens in the news? Why are some songs censored? As part of our censorship unit, you and a classmate(s) will be conducting a webquest to explore censorship as it relates to the news media and/or music. You will select a topic that interests you, and then you will search for other related sources with differing viewpoints on the same topic. Then, as a group, you will determine how to best present your findings and opinions to the rest of the class.
