Master Sept 28 “To Kill a Mockingbird”


Do all of the following:

  1. Read “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee
  2. Research the author, Harper Lee. What made her want to write a book like this? What was she hoping her audience would get out of it?
  3. Choose one of the characters and analyze their actions and the consequences of their actions over time. What truths/principles were they living or not living that resulted in what happened to them? (for example look for things like courage, selfishness, forgiveness, loyalty, tolerance, etc.)
  4. Where else do we see evidence of this principle/truth that you found in this book? Find one reference in another piece of literature, your scriptures, or life experience of someone you know or have read about that backs up this principle.
  5. Choose 1 way you can apply this principle in your life to better live it. (Or if you’re living an incorrect principle/truth, how can you change to align with correct principles?)
  6. How was diversity in this community a stumbling block and what could they have done to live more peaceably together?


Bring something that you’ve made to class to share that represents this book to you.
