Freshmen Read To Kill A Mockingbird

Freshmen Read To Kill a Mockingbird

by Emily Schnelle

   During the month of March, freshmen read To Kill a Mockingbird - a classic novel written by Harper Lee.

   They began the unit by discussing the 1930’s and the Scottsboro Boys’ Trial. During this time students learned about the severe racism that took place in the South during the 1930’s. Students would typically read 2-3 chapters about twice a week and take notes that included summaries and vocabulary. When the freshmen finished the assigned readings, they would either join their small groups for a discussion or have a large class discussion where they would talk about themes and events that happened in the reading.

   “I liked the book but it got more interesting at the end,” said Jena Hart.

   The students will take the two-day test over the book on April 21 and 22.  They will follow up with the To Kill a Mockingbird movie.
