Answer the questions below based on your knowledge of the first 11 chapters of the novel to kill a mockingbird by harper lee.. Copyright © 2012 Share The Knownledge, All trademarks are the property of the respective trademark owners. For most of her life, Lee divided her time between New York City, where she wrote the novel in the 1950s, and her hometown of Monroeville, which inspired the book’s fictional Maycomb.
The book quickly became a best-seller, won the Pulitzer Prize and was made into a memorable movie in 1962, with Gregory Peck winning an Oscar for his portrayal of Atticus. By 2015, its sales were reported by HarperCollins to be more than 40 million worldwide, making it one of the most widely read American novels of the 20th century. But she began declining interviews in the late 1960s and, until late in her life, firmly avoided making any public comment at all about her novel or her career.

Born in Monroeville, Alabama, Nelle Harper Lee was known to family and friends as Nelle (pronounced Nell) โ€” the name of a relative, Ellen, spelled backward. Lee said in the 1960s that she was working on a second novel, but over time it dropped from view and never reached a publisher. Lee researched another book, a non-fiction account of a bizarre murder case in rural east Alabama, but abandoned the project in the 1980s. Lee, who attended Huntingdon College in Montgomery as a freshman, transferred the next year to the University of Alabama, where she wrote and became editor of the campus literary magazine.
Lee worked as an airlines reservation clerk in New York City during the early 1950s, writing on the side.
Lee worked with the editor Tay Hohoff in bringing the book to its final form, a period when Lee was scrimping financially and dealing with the difficulties of rewriting.
Her novel, while hugely popular, was not ranked by many scholars in the same category as the work of other Southern authors such as Eudora Welty or Flannery O’Connor. The book’s tension is built around the lynching atmosphere in Maycomb as the black man goes on trial, a scenario reminiscent of the Scottsboro Boys rape case of the same period. This story has been corrected to give the proper spelling of William Faulkner’s last name and to correct the name of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. We will be completing a number of interactive activities this week and after the holiday break, including a theme and symbol MASK MAKING activity and some Queen Mab drawings (see a picture of the final products below from previous years).We will also be reading and acting out various scenes and watching two different film versions of the play in order to compare and contrast styles and director's choices. Students will be given the entire class period in the computer lab on Wednesday to complete this task. Please EDIT EDIT EDIT carefully so that you are following all the proper formatting rules including: 1 " margins around each page - no bigger or smallerCourse information and name, etc. Students are expected to write between 1-3 pages that detail the events of Tom Robinson's trial from any one of the character's perspectives (except Scout).The other option is to create 4 character "Fakebook" pages. For those of you who are auditory learners and you like to listen along while you read you may find this very helpful.
Please click on the link and read the article, then be prepared to discuss this article in class seminars. We will be having a class discussion about the issues in this video on Monday, so make sure to watch and listen with critical eyes and ears.
She does a one-woman show about "American Character" - just like we are studying in our short story unit!
Anthologies called Elements of English 9 will be provided to students along with a few photocopied short stories. A black man has been wrongly accused of raping a white woman, and Scout’s father, the resolute lawyer Atticus Finch, defends him despite threats and the scorn of many. As the civil rights movement grew, the novel inspired a generation of young lawyers, was assigned in high schools all over the country and was a popular choice for citywide, or nationwide, reading programs.
Readers and reviewers were disheartened to find an Atticus who seemed nothing like the hero of the earlier book.
She wasn’t a bragger, like Norman Mailer, or a drinker, like William Faulkner, or a recluse or eccentric. After studying to be a lawyer like her father and older sister, Lee left the university before graduating, heading to New York to become a writer, as Capote already had done.

Some critics said it relied at times on stereotypes, such as the mean, trashy whites making false charges against a virtuous black. Scout, Dill and Jem, whose playful curiosity takes scary turns, witness the drama of an adult world with its own frightening lessons. Parents and Guardians, make sure to ask your son or daughter about how the unit is going and you can even quiz them on the various poetic devices that show up in Shakespeare's language!
While watching the film students are expected to take notes so that they are prepared for Wednesday's task.See below for a link to the assignment. This is often given out as a project to students and I'm sure you can all find many examples online, but here is one that I thought was particularly good.
Often when we talk about modern examples of racism (and hate crimes) I think we like to pretend that it happens in the United States or somewhere ELSE.
This is also an excellent information page for those of you who are curious about his life and profession.
We will also continue to work on perfecting our paragraph writing skills as we progress through this unit.
My contact information is listed on your child's course outline and in the tab across the top of this web site. She spoke frequently to the press, wrote about herself and gave speeches, once to a class of cadets at West Point. By the accounts of friends and Monroeville townsfolk, she was a warm, vibrant and witty woman who enjoyed life, played golf, read voraciously and got about to plays and concerts. In 2007, she agreed to attend a White House ceremony at which she received a Presidential Medal of Freedom. One of her childhood friends was Truman Capote, who lived with relatives next door to the Lees for several years.
Some critics have called the book naive and sentimental, whether dismissing the Ku Klux Klan as a minor nuisance in Maycomb or advocating change through personal persuasion rather than collective action. But the tomboy Scout and the quietly courageous Atticus Finch drew praise as memorable, singular creations. What qualities of American life are we being shown through these characters and what can we learn about culture and history from Stephen Crane's short story and the characters Ms. Around the same time, she wrote a rare published item โ€” for O, The Oprah Magazine โ€” about how she became a reader as a child in a rural, Depression-era Alabama town, and remained one. The novel was also considered patronizing for highlighting the bravery of a white man on behalf of blacks. Then write a proper paragraph with a properly developed topic sentence explaining why they agree or disagree with their chosen statement.
King's four children are still alive: Martin Luther King III, Dexter Scott King and Bernice Albertine King. If someone were to make a modern version of Mockingbird, who would you like to see play the main characters?
