English 7 – To Kill a Mockingbird

Comment 0

This quarter, the 7th graders read and studied To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. First, students partook in the K-W-L activity (What you KNOW, What you WANT to know, & what you have LEARNED) after reading an excerpt from the novel. Each week, students read assigned chapters and answered novel unit guide questions that acted as a formative.


A class discussion ensued on the major themes of the novel. Subsequently, groups were assigned chapters in which they created theme bank posters using evidence from the novel.



To review for the summative, students played a series of Kahoot games on the plot, setting, themes, and characters of the novel.


Students were led through the speechwriting process and learned about ethos, pathos, and logos. Afterwards, were asked to reflect how Atticus used these three rhetorical elements during the trial in To Kill a Mockingbird.

Students wrote, practiced, and presented their speeches to the class.

Students then reviewed for the final exam and watched the 1962 film of To Kill a Mockingbird during the last week of school.
