Work to do if you are at home for the week of June 15th

Hello everyone – here is the work to do this week if you are at home.
1) Begin with a little warm up (see the attached document).  Please email me your responses by this Friday, June 19.
3) Please respond to ONE of these questions relating to To Kill a Mockingbird by Friday, June 19.
  1. The novel is built around opportunities for the characters to express and experience empathy.  Which moment of empathy do you find the most moving and important?  What makes it so compelling?

  2. Discuss one of the videos (links above).  How does it provide a connection or a new understanding in its relationship to the themes of To Kill a Mockingbird?

  3. Which character do you connect with the most?  How so?  How did this help you understand the story?

  4. What is the lesson about life that you think Harper Lee would have wanted you to walk away from reading this novel understanding?

  5. Address our essential question:  when injustice occurs, is empathy enough?  How does this apply to To Kill a Mockingbird?

  6. What is the purpose of Boo’s character?  Why does Lee include him in the story at all?

Please let me know if you have any questions!
