Mr. Nolley’s Classroom Edit display name

As we enter a new, weird school year, I have been working to develop new ideas for my 9th grade English classes. I recently read "Just Mercy," by Bryan Stevenson, and fell in love with it. It is a true story of passion, determination, and redemption. As early as being halfway through the book, I knew I wanted to teach this novel to my students. With callbacks and references to Harper Lee's "To Kill A Mockingbird," "Just Mercy" fits well with our district's vertical curriculum, giving a hyperrealistic view into the experiences of today's justice system, experiences not unlike those of TKAM's Tom Robinson. My hope is that this book will allow my students to step off the sidewalks of Lee's Maycomb, Alabama, and into the streets of Monroeville, Alabama (Lee's real-life hometown, Maycomb's inspiration, and Just Mercy's focal point), opening their eyes to a world in which there Tom Robinsons abound.
