Because Harper Lee's novel "To Kill a Mockingbird" is such a complex and multi-layered work, it's almost impossible to create a unit plan that covers everything without totally ruining the reading experience. As part of my unit on the novel, I focused my study guide on good character: what the characters' actions tell us about them; what the novel teaches us about being a "good person"; the importance of tolerance, acceptance, and empathy; and how we see the lessons of Atticus Finch in our own lives.
This study guide, which is 25 pages, is based on short-answer and open-ended questions, which the teacher sets up through discussion. (Those discussion points are not included, though I would be more than happy to send my PowerPoint, if needed. I have not included it on TPT because of copyright issues with images, etc.) I've tried to make my questions as diverse as possible, and the full guide is a mixture of summarizing, opinion, analysis, synthesis, and making connections.
I do not claim this study guide is perfect or as complex as it could/should be, but it served me well during the 2 months I taught "To Kill a Mockingbird," and I will be revising it as I continue to teach it.
*NOTE: The main graphic organizer for this unit is not included in the study guide but can be found through my store, free of charge. It's called "To Kill a Mockingbird: Character Chart," and it's posted with a description of its use.
