Can you understand more about how a person acts by learning about how that person lives? An interactive resource explores the setting of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird with several slides discussing the location, social conditions, and time period of the fictional (but historically inspired) town of Maycomb, Alabama.
- Compare and contrast the setting of To Kill a Mockingbird to another book set in the Great Depression, such as The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
- Have learners write an analytical essay at the end of the unit based on the questions on the first page of the interactive resource
- Users need to have access to the Internet to explore the slides
- Some slides require viewers to login in their accounts to view or save their work
- Includes extensive vocabulary that pertains to the time and location setting of the novel
- Provides several primary source images that help to place the reader in the scene
