In our work with Harper Lee's classic novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, we will focus on how characters grow, change and learn as a result of their experiences. Students will read independently to get the gist of the story, then work in small and large groups to build understanding.
Key questions include...
• What is happening here? How do we know?
• Who are the characters? What do we know about them? How do we know?
• What moments strike you as most significant to the text? Explain why those moments are significant.
• Locate passages you find difficult to understand. What is it about these passages that you find difficult? Work to untangle the difficulty.
