Monday - DO NOW: Summarize chapters 24-26 from over the weekend.
Connecting chapter 10 to chapter 25: In Chapter 10, Atticus tells Scout and Jem that “it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” Find three examples of that advice being echoed with similar imagery in this chapter. How do these examples help you better understand the meaning of Atticus’s advice and the message that Harper Lee intends readers to take away from the story?
Looking at the change within Scout's imagination towards Boo Radley in chapter 26. Discuss and share out. How are Scout’s fantasies about meeting Boo Radley different now than they were earlier in the novel? How have her feelings about the Radley house changed? How do you explain these changes? What evidence can you find in this chapter to explain them?
Tuesday - I will be out of the classroom due to professional development. While I will be out, the students will complete an Article of the Week with the substitute. This will be collected.
Wednesday - SAT DAY. NO CLASS.
Thursday - We will watch a twenty minute long video from Northeastern University tilted "The Trouble I've Seen."
