Product Description
The historical elements from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee are so rich and absolutely essential to truly understanding the full context of the story. In my experience, students don't understand the elements behind the story. I designed this to bring about understanding and started using this inquiry-based group research project. I noticed a huge difference in the enjoyment and comprehension of the real issues from this story. Some of the topics covered in this project include: the Great Depression, the Stock Market Crash, the Dust Bowl, Racism in the 1920s-1930s, Jim Crow Laws, the KKK, the Scottsboro Trials, White Supremacy, JFK's New Deal, Southern Culture, Gender Expectations in the 1920s-1930s, and how the mentally handicapped were viewed during the time the book is set. All of elements greatly impact the overall unit and understanding of To Kill a Mockingbird. This project comes complete with a rubric for grading and resources for citing sources accurately following MLA format. This complete project is ready to print and hand out to your students.
