Case Study: Atticus Takes a Stand


In this unit, students begin to read Part 2 of the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, and they finish it before the unit’s end. As they read, students will continue to reflect on the reading by answering focus questions that attend to the theme of taking a stand, while also studying other important aspects of the novel involving character analysis and perspective. In order to track their thinking as they read the rest of the novel, students will continue to add to their Atticus Note-catchers from Unit 1 as well as the Taking a Stand anchor chart.
