This product to supplement your To Kill a Mockingbird unit provides five different writing prompts for each of the five sections of the novel outlined below.
From thematic connections like, "What/who could be considered a mockingbird in current day? What mockingbirds are being attacked in present day?" to personal connections like, "Atticus takes an unpopular position in the town when he decides to defend Tom Robinson. Describe a time where you took an unpopular stand," to arguments of agree/disagree like, "Agree or disagree with Miss Maudie’s belief: “People in their right minds never take pride in their talents” (Chapter 10)," each of the prompt sets allows student choice, deeper analysis into issues in the novel, and individual reflection.
The twenty-five prompts could be used for weekly writing, warm-ups, paragraphs, essays, homework, and class discussions, as well as breaking the class into five groups, where each group is responsible to discuss the prompt and then present their conclusions to the class.
The five sections of the novel are broken down in the following manner:
Part One, Chapters 1-5
Part One, Chapters 6-11
Part Two, Chapters 12-15 (Before the Trial)
Part Two, Chapters 16-21 (The Trial and the Verdict)
Part Two, Chapters 22-31 (After the Trial to the Ending)
Be sure to open the preview for the complete sample of prompts for Part One, Chapters 1-5 and Part One, Chapters 6-11.
