My students need a complete set of To Kill a Mockingbird.
I teach language arts to 8th graders that are eager to read and learn. My students need these books to ensure they are ready to start their high school career. It is an honor for me to have the opportunity to teach these amazing kids and these books will play a part in preparing them for future academic success.
To Kill a Mockingbird is a coming-of-age story, my students will be reading it during a time when the they are coming of age. It is a time in which they are starting to question and consider the perspectives of others. As Atticus says, 'to climb in someone's skin and walk around in it.' To Kill a Mockingbird offers them an awareness of the nature of humankind and, as such, allows each and every student to connect across generations with those who have also been changed by this read. This novel will not only benefit them academically, but socially as well.
