Tuesday, March 18: Setting of TKaM (place)

1. Warm-up on notebook paper: What are the different neighborhoods of Durham? How are they different? (Today we will be discussing the setting of To Kill a Mockingbird, using Durham as a point of reference.)

2. We shared out about the different neighborhoods of Durham and how they related to the fictional neighborhoods of Maycomb (based on the real Monroeville, Alabama). Here are some cool pictures we looked at:

3. Next, students received a copy of the Reading Guide: To Kill a Mockingbird Reading Guide. We filled out some of the key information. Students will use this as they read and can use it during oral quizzes, which will generally be on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

HW: Bring your own copy of To Kill a Mockingbird tomorrow if you have one. We will issue books tomorrow.
