What is This Product?

This product is a bulletin board/ wall display activity to accompany a whole-class read aloud or novel-study of Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson. The included printable pictures, headings, and directions are designed to help you and your students keep track of Walter McMillian's case and the people involved via more than three different display options!

What is Included?

  • Pictures of almost all the people & places involved in Walter McMillian's case (a few people did not have available pictures)
  • Headings to help create a bulletin board or wall display in 3+ different designs
    • A CSI-style case/ 'conspiracy' wall (think mind-map)
    • A timeline to sort the events in the case chronologically
    • Headings to sort people and evidence to recreate Walter's trials
  • Directions for how to have students track information and create the wall display using the included stuff and index cards
  • A chapter-by-chapter character list to help you assign your students a person to track

How Can I Use This Product?

This display activity would work well with either a read-aloud or whole class novel study. Students are assigned people from the story to track through each chapter, and they add information about the people and their roles in Walter's case to the wall display the class creates together. This is a great way to encourage active listening while helping students make sense of all the moving parts in Walter's case and creating a really cool wall display together as a class.
