Product Description
This PowerPoint discussion requires students to think critically about the names Harper Lee gives her characters. Plenty of background information is given regarding name symbolism in pop culture such as Star Wars, Batman, The Matrix, and literature such as The Grapes of Wrath and Animal Farm. Then students look more closely at the names of TKAM's major and minor characters.
I teach this lesson after reading chapters 1-5, but it can be used anywhere in the novel.
A writing prompt is also included.
