Taking a Stand in Maycomb


In this third unit, students will analyze key quotes that reflect the overarching themes they studied in Units 1 and 2. Students will form small groups and be assigned one of the quotes as the basis of a Readers Theater script. Students will craft their script by selecting critical scenes from the novel that develop the theme in the quote.
