Product Description
The context of how poverty and Jim Crow laws had a significant impact in the American South is necessary background information for the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. Too often, however, students cannot visualize the way that African-Americans or others were disadvantaged during the Great Depression. Feedback from students has been positive with these activities, as they each provide a different perspective of the 1930's through visuals, real-life interviews, or sharing through group work.

Included in this bundle:
- Jim Crow Era Web Quest
- Great Depression Interview
- Great Depression Frontloading Poster Activity

I usually used the webquest, interview, and poster activity as frontloading before reading the novel. Pictures from the webquest activity and information from the interview and poster activities can certainly be analyzed in class according to the following:

- What students notice as patterns in pictures/firsthand accounts
- What students predict might happen in the novel based on what they discovered
- How they can connect the information they found with themes in the novel and the impact of the novel on the human experience
