To Kill a Mockingbird
offers our students so many ways to make connections that it's the perfect opportunity to have them write a personal narrative. Writing a story that makes a connection allows students to not only wrap their heads around the characters and themes, but also helps them to understand the universality of Lee's messages.
While this product is not a detailed lesson on the genre of personal narrative, it does guide the students to follow the steps necessary to write an effective, compelling story. They will have the opportunity to do pre-writing to develop their ideas and to complete tasks that will help them focus on the elements of narration. There is also an optional handout that asks students to make more specific connections to the novel, with quotations that illustrate the connection. You can read about how and why I use this assignment in my own classroom HERE.
