Engage your students with literature activities that appeal to them, and do it in a DIGITAL FORMAT! This resource is technology-driven for the 21st-century classroom and can be easily shared with your students using Google Classroom, Apps, or other password-protected Learning Management System. It is excellent for schools who are distance learning or for teachers trying to incorporate more technology in their classes.


Students use the digital reader's notebook to enhance their reading of the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. The notebook focuses on two essential questions:

  • What is the relationship between morality, behavior, and justice?
  • What is courage? What kinds of changes currently exist because of the actions of courageous people?

Chunked into 7 reading assignments, students read the text and interact with the notebook. For each reading chunk, work includes:

  • Introduction to a key idea from the chapter selection
  • 5 Review questions
  • Observations-Questions-Inferences-Reflections (O-Q-I-R) Reading Response
  • What's Worth Talking About? One-page writing journal
  • Essential Question Work
  • Relevant readings and analysis

Additionally, students think and respond to culturally connected topics such as Controversy, Otherness, Mob Mentality, Hypocrisy, and Coming of Age.

Incorporating poetry, text excerpts, short videos, and more, this notebook requires students to not only think about important issues but also to write about them.

A teacher guide with suggested answers is included.

This is thorough and engaging and your students will love it!
