Mockingbird: Day 2

Today we discussed the historical context of Lee’s works. After freereading,

  1. We made a 6×3 chart on a sheet of paper, labeling the 3 with ’30s, ’60s, and present day. We labeled the 6 with our motifs: law, morality, manhood, race, gender, and class.
  2. Then, we watched two clips from the documentary Hey, Boo to fill out the boxes related to the ’30s and the ’60s. Here are the clips: 1930s Maycomb and 1960 Southern Reaction.
  3. Students then had time to work on filling out the rest of the chart, using internet research when needed.

HW: Finish your motif chart for tomorrow!
