This mini unit is designed to lay the foundation for the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. Written during the height of the Civil Rights Movement in 1960, and set during the 1930s, racial injustice is at the core of this novel, and in order for students to truly understand what the novel is about, they need to understand these issues.
