If you're searching for an interactive, informational, student-directed research project before reading (or even while reading) To Kill a Mockingbird, this is the assignment for you! This is a quick background research project for small groups to learn about important topics of discussion related to the text. This product is a student handout which contains instructions for the research project as well as a standards-based, customized rubric.

This project can also be adapted to suit your class's needs. I have students research using computers and create an Power Point or Prezi style presentation, but this would be extremely easy to make into a poster presentation. I have even created a whole class Google Slides Presentation and shared the link with my classes so that it forms one giant presentation instead of many smaller ones (I find that my inbox can get cluttered easily if I have too many presentations shared with me)—I would highly recommend this method as well.

Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Make strategic use of digital media (e.g., textual, graphical, audio, visual, and interactive elements) in presentations to enhance understanding of findings, reasoning, and evidence and to add interest.
Present information, findings, and supporting evidence clearly, concisely, and logically such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning and the organization, development, substance, and style are appropriate to purpose, audience, and task.
Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.
Gather relevant information from multiple authoritative print and digital sources, using advanced searches effectively; assess the usefulness of each source in answering the research question; integrate information into the text selectively to maintain the flow of ideas, avoiding plagiarism and following a standard format for citation.
Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects to answer a question (including a self-generated question) or solve a problem; narrow or broaden the inquiry when appropriate; synthesize multiple sources on the subject, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation.
