Product Description
John Steinbeck dedicated his novel, East of Eden to his friend Pat. He wrote:

Dear Pat,
You came upon me carving some kind of little figure out of wood and you said, “Why don’t you make something for me?”
I asked you what you wanted, and you said, “A box.”
“What for?”
“To put things in.”
“What kind of things?”
“Whatever you have,” you said.
Well, here’s your box. Nearly everything I have is in it, and it is not full. Pain and excitement are in it, and feeling good or bad and evil thoughts and good thoughts- the pleasure of design and some despair and the indescribable joy of creation.
And on top of these are all the gratitude and love I have for you.
And still the box is not full.
John


Here is my mahogany box.

Part One:

• 15 pages of Guided Notes - beautifully illustrated, yet extensive in analysis and detail and littered with textual evidence. (answer key included)

• 112 PowerPoint slides - sister product of the guided notes. More vibrant than the notes and includes extension activities. Virtually every slide includes appropriate CCSS for that skill.

• 10 page test (43 multiple choice & 1 constructed response) + student answer sheets - All questions are Common Core aligned with plenty of textual evidence. Constructed response includes a rubric to help students succeed and teachers to seamlessly and objectively score literary analysis. (multiple choice answer key included)/ There are two versions of the same test. The questions for the original version are weighted (for example, questions requiring multiple answers are worth more than those that only require one answer). This can make scoring tests a little more difficult, therefore I created an option in which all test questions are weighted the same.

• Creative project with rubric. This project was created with the PARCC Narrative Writing Task in mind. For this project, students retell an event (Chapter) from the perspective of a different character. Project includes: student directions, plot map, and rubric.

• Detailed, though easy to follow day-by day Unit Plan


Part Two:

• 15 pages of Guided Notes - beautifully illustrated, yet extensive in analysis and detail and littered with textual evidence. (answer key included)

• 162 PowerPoint slides - sister product of the guided notes. More vibrant than the notes and includes extension activities. Virtually every slide includes appropriate CCSS for that skill.

• 9 page test (40 multiple choice & 1 constructed response) + student answer sheets - All questions are Common Core aligned with plenty of textual evidence.(multiple choice answer key included). Again, there are two versions of the same test. The questions for the original version are weighted (for example, questions requiring multiple answers are worth more than those that only require one answer). This can make scoring tests a little more difficult, therefore I created an option in which all test questions are weighted the same.

• Creative project with rubric. This project was created with the PARCC Narrative writing task in mind. For this project, students create a Newspaper with three articles: an objective summary of The Tom Robinson Trial, World/National event based on the actual day the trial may have occurred, and B.B. Underwood's Mockingbird Editorial on the trial. Project includes Montgomery Adviser Newspaper Template (Word doc.)


Extension Activities:

• Pre-reading Group Activity -
NOTE: I used this activity for a Compass Evaluation and received a Highly Effective rating as a result.
In this activity, students rotate to 5 stations in which they will obtain background knowledge on key concepts necessary for understanding and appreciating Scout's tale of childhood and social prejudices. Concepts are: background on Harper Lee, Jim Crow Laws, Expectations of Southern Women, Lynching & Mob Mentality, and The Great Depression). After absorbing the information provided, students select a higher order thinking question slip at random (each station has 4 HOT questions which allow students to respond to the information on a deeper, more meaningful way). Reflection slips are glued to a response sheet and discussed as a group though responses are individual.

• "Putting Yourself in Someone Else's Skin" activity - In this activity, students look back on Scout's first day of school by not only recording details from her perspective, but also by making inferences on how her day would have been different had she been given Atticus' advice ("You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view--until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.") beforehand.

• Poetry activities - carefully selected poems and analysis to connect to key events of the book (Tim Johnson incident & Tom Robinson Cross-examination)

• Atticus Finch Body Biography activity - Students analyze this complex character in a visual way. Activity includes character analysis guidelines (written), character analysis instructions (visual) + silhouette of Atticus Finch, and a directions on writing a "I am" poem.

• "Who's the Mockingbird" Analytical Paragraph Center - Students work in groups to develop a detailed analysis arguing how a specified character can be considered a mockingbird (characters are assigned randomly). Characters include: Tom Robinson, Boo Radley, Scout, Jem, Dill, Mayella Ewell, and Dolphus Raymond. Set includes: random selector cards, station markers/directions, TEPAC model materials (Rubric and Sentence starter suggestions sheet), and student organizer chart.

• Say•Mean•Matter: Famous Quotes of To Kill a Mockingbird activity. Students look into a deeper understanding by paraphrasing key quotes from the text and discussing the relevance using these 17 quotes slips.

• Testimonial Evidence Chart - Keep your students organized with the need-to-know details of each testimony.

• Say•Mean•Matter Chart - Analyze the importance of key details from the trial. Students choose evidence from the text, paraphrase that information, and analyze its importance.

• "Ain't I a Woman" - Before analyzing Atticus' power closing statement, allow students to practice with Sojourner Truth's famous speech. This activity includes two sources to build background knowledge, plus a reliability checklist that helps students choose the most dependable source. Additionally, this set includes Sojourner Truth's speech, "Ain't I a Woman" and questions which lead students to analyze the structure and purpose of the speech. I've also included an illustrated cover page if you choose to organize this activity into a folder.

• Atticus' Closing Statement - Students breakdown what makes this closing statement so powerful (and timeless) by analyzing the structure and intended effect his carefully chosen words have.

• Sensational Trials - In this group activity, students read case summaries of 4 real-life sensational trials which are thorough in detail, but secretive in identity and result. Students will then predict the verdict of these trials while providing textual evidence to support their claim. Once teacher reveals the verdict, students discuss and respond on what made these trials so sensational (much like the trial of Tom Robinson).

• Think•Pair•Share: Responding to the Verdict of Tom Robinson - Allow students the time necessary to process and reflect on the verdict of Tom Robinson, individually and in pairs or small groups.

• Accusation Discussion - It's difficult to teach this book and not face questions on morality and sensitive issues. This packet helps you approach the topic of false accusations and its affect on rape in a professional and objective way by providing students with opinion pieces which guide them into looking at several facets of the discussion. File includes charts for organizing information and ideas.
