Focusing on the idea of “courage,” this is a Common-Core based lesson asks students to summarize and annotate, concentrating on literary devices, and the reading strategies of making inferences and questioning.

This resource engages students in close reading strategies to examine six excerpts from the novel To Kill a Mockingbird.

Additionally, there are metacognitive thinking stems that allow students to make personal and real-world connections to the text.

Finally, each excerpt give students writing practice in which textual support for their ideas is required.

The 6 excerpts come from Chapters 1, 6, 11, 15, 24, and 30.

Additionally, a "Courage Chart" is included for students to keep track of additional examples of courage through their reading. An essay prompt has been added, as have several models of the annotations.
