9th Semester To Kill a Mockingbird review

29 Dec

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/

Once you create your storyboard, please share the URL from your creation by uploading the embed code in a comment to this post. Include a short comment and your name.

      The text section in a storyboard should contain very few if any mistakes. I suggest you revise your texts. Your word choice in all three cells convey the meaning you want to share; however, there are many instances in which you use the wrong form of the word. (wf). You may correct the texts and add them as a comment response to this comment if you cannot edit the storyboard itself.

      To edit and revise the texts, it might be a good idea to put your text on a different application, such as Word, and put English as the predetermined language in order to see the mistakes clearly.

        Good morning, teacher; thank you so much! I have done some changes, I edited the storyboard itself. It was an excellent idea to put the text on a different application (I used Word).

      There are several mistakes in your texts. Please review them and correct them. If you put them onto a Word document with the predetermined language in English, it might be easier to see where they are.(missing subject, word form, incomplete sentences)

        thank you teacher, I corrected the mistakes I could detect.
