Product Description
As we are studying the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, many themes should become apparent. Issues of racism, prejudice, parental love, innocence lost, growing up, and living under difficult conditions are all central concepts to Harper Lee's novel. One thing that we see very little of, however, is the African American perspective on these themes. A film which has many parallels to To Kill a Mockingbird, but is told from the African American point of view is Once Upon a Time. . . When We Were Colored. Watching this film, you can gain that other perspective. The settings of the two stories are slightly different, but the feelings, problems, and joys are similar.
As they watch the film, this sheet asks the students to write down three examples of each of seven categories (Racism, Growing Up, etc.) in order to make a stronger connection to To Kill A Mockingbird.
