This product features all the materials you need to conduct a thoughtful and engaging "HOT SEAT" for To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. The hot seat is set up essentially like a talk show, however in order to allow for full class participation, there are multiple interviewers and multiple character guests. Through role play, this lesson tests your students' understanding of the novel and allows them to showcase their knowledge of the characters and the relationships between them. Your students will be having so much fun that they will not even realize the high-order thinking skills they are applying.
- Meticulously Explained 2-Day Lesson Plan
- Character Instructions
- Interviewer Instructions
- Sample Chart
- 8 Character Signs
- 3 Fire Signs
- Student Example
This is the perfect activity for when a school vacation is coming up and you’re scrounging for lesson ideas. I always like to use it prior to a break; while so many other classes are watching movies, you have a practically hands-free lesson that your students (and administration) will love!
