A Few Additional Notes
There are three writing assignments in this unit, each with the purpose of informing, persuading, or expressing personal opinions. The detailed writing assignment sheets guide students through the assignments. The first assignment is to inform: students write a letter from Dill to his mother telling her all about his new friend, Scout. The second assignment is to persuade: following the reports and discussion, students take a stance regarding one of the themes the class has discussed, based on the information given in class and the students' own personal reflections. The third assignment is to give students a chance to simply express their own opinions and be creative: students do a group writing assignment in which they either outline the plot for To Kill a Mockingbird II, or outline a plot for To Kill A Mockingbird set in a major city in the current year
These materials are geared for whole class use but are very easily adapted for independent study work, lit circles or book groups, home school use, or tutoring. If you have never taught this book before, this manual will give you a great foundation of materials on a variety of levels. If you have taught this book before, you might like to know that many veteran teachers have told us they have found our LitPlan Teacher Pack manuals to be much more thorough and more helpful than other materials they have used.
