To Kill a Mockingbird is full of rich descriptive language, but some of that language can be hard for students to understand. This reading guide allows students to dissect the language used in the first three chapters of the novel, and provides opportunities for class discussion about the meaning of this language. This requires students to cite the page number where they find answers to the guided questions.
This reading guide provides vocabulary and previews for each chapter to help support students in reading this challenging text.
Two versions are provided, one with helpful scaffolding for students who have IEPs, or who are language learnings. This version provides more detailed previews and moreTier 1 and Tier 2 vocabulary words. Additionally, there are sentence frames to help support students who struggle to independently answer comprehension questions.
