Hello! For your final reading project, you will be working with the book or movie “To Kill a Mockingbird,'” using this theme borrowed and adapted from the 2012 page of Paper Starter (http://www.paperstarter.com/mockingbird.htm (originally from Nicole Hemsoth, 2003) which is repeated below with your specific instructions for our class.
Character Analysis of Atticus Finch
From Nicole Hemsoth, “One of the most inspiring characters in 20th-century American literature is Atticus Finch. A morally upright lawyer, a committed and loving father, and an overall good citizen, Finch is regarded highly by most citizens with a sense of justice.”
In this reading project, you will be working with a storyboard. A storyboard is a tool which you may use online to combine text, visuals, and commentary. You will find many storyboards from Storyboardthat which previous teachers and students have created to discuss plot (you can find them and get some visual ideas by googling “storyboard to kill a mockingbird.” In this project, you will NOT be discussing the plot. You will be doing something completely original.
If you have difficulties creating your storyboard, please upload your work to the shared Google slideshow at this URL: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1iUxArshDvYrR4_Tma5sOvvZJAO7nzvROO6n2uMgd7nk/edit#slide=id.g1bdbb3293b_0_0
You will create four cells minimum in your storyboard to include four different quotes from the story. Each cell will contain:
- a quote from the story or movie (for instance, you might take a portion of the courtroom speech),
- an original picture from the movie (in which case you will have to include your resource) or caricature that you create, and
- an explanation why you chose the quote to analyze Atticus Finch and how it reflects his character
This outstanding essay about Atticus Finch’s character may give you some ideas. http://www.articlemyriad.com/analysis-atticus-finch-to-kill-mockingbird/
