This lesson plan focuses on government controlled censorship in China through the form of a mandated computer filter which does not allow “harmful information” to be viewed. Is China using this filter to merely shield young people from harmful language, images, and content, or is it, rather, a way to control anti-government publications, websites, and discussions?
