The CCSS say to "go deeper". This 38-page unit does just that. Besides the instructional plan showing standards and activities, it includes all of the materials students should use to tackle several standards: research, speaking and listening, literary text, and writing. While the unit is centered around two key standards: Literary text and the development of theme through complex characters and Expository Writing about that theme, it also includes materials that will help your students examine the novel closely. Please note that while this unit prepared for English 9-10, Mockingbird actually has a much lower Lexile level, so there are not a plethora of high level vocabulary words from which to choose. Therefore, the approach used is to teach the process of acquiring vocabulary while using close reading activities intended to help your students prepare for college readiness and next-generation assessments; it also includes reader's response topics and analysis of a poem with a similar theme. If you purchase this, you will want to also look for the To Kill A Mockingbird Writing Organizer and Character Development Charts, which were in a different format and, therefore, not easy to add to this unit. (As a result, I kept the price down.) Use To Kill A Mockingbird and these plans and materials for a deep-dive into reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
