This is intended to be a thought provoking reading guide that your students can complete upon finishing Harper Lee’s novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. The questions will prompt your students to recall information from the text, form opinions on what they read, and use evidence from the text to support their points of view.
I successfully used this assignment in various formats. The questions are quite lengthy and would make a wonderful assessment grade for one student. I found that these questions were a great way to tell if my students read and understood the material. I also used these questions when facilitating group work. Groups of three to four students will do a great job answering the questions and sharing lively discussion over the material. Lastly, I used these questions to facilitate one large classroom discussion. In all three formats, the students were actively engaged in discussing the material and sharing their knowledge.
