Reviewer Comments:

This resource on To Kill a Mockingbird is offered as a 19 day unit for an English 9 class. It is suggested that the students have a significant amount of prior knowledge, including the ability to - compare and contrast different creation stories, apply knowledge about story structure, and write a logical, organized five paragraph essay. The objectives are presented clearly and are aligned with standards from the National Council of Teachers of English. Some specific learning tasks are described. However, more detail in content and pedagogy are needed for a complete unit. Ideas for assessment are also presented clearly, but specific graphic organizers are not included.
