To Kill a Mockingbird: Character Analysis Activity
This Harper Lee novel is one of my favorites, particularly for studying characterization. Lee crafted her characters not only in a way that makes readers feel like they know these people personally, but also to conceptualize the societal norms of the time period in which she wrote.
One of my main goals for teaching literature is to make sure students understand that literature is born out of a time period. It showcases the societal norms of a given period.
With this project, I push my students to see Lee’s purpose in utilizing specific characters, but I also want them to recognize those character types within our society and within their own lives.
I use this set of questions in multiple ways:
*as an end-of-novel project
*as an end-of-novel discussion station rotation
*as a discussion springboard each time a character has been introduced enough that students could answer the questions thoroughly
In this set, you are receiving:
*a 26-slide digital version
*a 26-slide task card version
*suggested answers for the questions presented
You can also choose to print this set. Simple instructions included for this option.
