This activity asks students to define 54 words from To Kill a Mockingbird that the ordinary reader might find difficult to understand because they are older words, words pertaining to legal matters, words that pertain mainly to the South, or allusions. This project should be completed as the students read the novel. It would also make a great extra-credit project. The words and names are easily found online.
