9th Semester Reading Guide for Classroom Discussion

5 Dec

Remember ‘To Kill a Mockingbird?’ I do! And I would like to share with you some themes that you might want to keep in mind as you read. Only by reading the book honestly will you be able to respond appropriately to our classroom activities, which will happen before we break for vacation this month. We will be covering up to and including the end of the trial, which is the climax of the story.

The following themes will be at the center of our literacy activity:

  • Good vs. Evil…is it okay that Justice is not always fair?

  • Having morals…should people be able to have opinions that harm others?

  • Prejudice and Social Inequality…how can biases be harmful?

  • Birds and Mockingbirds

     

  • Keep fighting, even if you know you are going to lose…what are different ways people can show courage?

We will be working in teams again, and this time you will not be able to choose your theme; it will be assigned to you. So, keep on reading.
