As a teacher of the novel 'To Kill a Mockingbird' I found it difficult to find Chapter questions and activities for the novel that weren't just based on a comprehension of the events of the novel and that weren't, quite honestly, just boring. I also found that there weren't questions and activities that really brought out the powerful themes that the novel includes, got students to think critically about the events and characters of the novel, and that also made the book really relatable to students' lives. So through the 5 years that I've taught the novel, I wanted to make a resource that did exactly that. Have a look below as to what this resource includes.
In this resource you'll find 22 pages of chapter questions and activities for Chapters 1-4, 6-26 and 31, and a court case journal where students not only record the key points of the court case but also 'step inside the shoes of others' and write from the perspectives of those involved in the case.This resource also provides students opportunities for creative writing based on the novel, for debates on key themes, moral questions that the novel raises, and also on important quotes.
