To Kill a Mockingbird Class Set

My students need 30 copies of Harper Lee's novel, To Kill a Mockingbird.

My Students

The majority of my students come from low-income households. Many receive little to no help from parents for school supplies or moral support for school work. I have two classes of freshmen, each with about 25 students, at the College Preparation level. Almost all of my students fall into the category of low-income.

Without help from generous donors, my students may be severely lacking in terms of supplies needed for school.

My students need access to literature outside of their textbooks.

My Project

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is my favorite novel of all time. With this novel, I plan on engaging students in lively discussions and activities revolving around an essential question: Is Atticus Finch a hero, or is he simply doing his job? To Kill a Mockingbird has ample opportunity to access themes such as gender dynamics, classism and class differentials, racism, duty vs. obligation, and growing up. I also plan to briefly delve into teaching students about the bildungsroman novel style and how it directly relates to their current experiences.

The versatility and universality of this novel makes it a wonderful investment for the classroom because it can be used in just about any grade level and analyzed at a variety of skill levels.
