PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This resource was used as an enrichment activity in my 9th grade English Classes during our study of Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird.

This activity was created using the "Close Read" instructional strategy. My students read this selection 3 different times inside of one class period. For each "read," students were instructed to find text evidence that supports or answers the overall question for each read. There are several questions you can ask, based on the academic performance level of each class. Some classes may be able to understand the text without asking EVERY one of the questions, but other classes may need the extra questions to scaffold them to understand the "big ideas."

I generally do this activity with my whole group of students, but it could easily be manipulated to small-group work or individual work.

Within the text, I have linked informational resources to help students understand the author's allusions.

You can use this resource as a Close Read, or you can just present your students with the text and the questions for completion.

Included:
"Leaving Identity Issues to Other Folks" by Phillis Allen
Text Dependent Questions based on the text
Linked Informational Resources to help students understand the cultural allusions.
