I have slowly been adding curriculum to the site, yet already THOUSANDS of educators have downloaded my Romeo and Juliet Starter Unit. I’ve found many of you are interested in my Famous Facebook Profiles for Character Analysis, which I have also included here with characters from To Kill a Mockingbird. Just like my very popular Romeo and Juliet Unit, this packet has quizzes, midterms, and a final exam, as well as a few strategies and handouts that might be helpful for new teachers, or teachers who are overwhelmed and unsupported (which seems to be almost all of us, right?).
This is not a full unit, and not meant to be representative of how I teach TKAM. There are just a few things here that I think would be a good place to start for good teachers to build on. I remember when I was a first year teacher thinking I would kill for a couple handouts, a quiz or two and a final exam. Well, that’s what I have here, and to me there isn’t any better book to teach than Harper Lee’s classic.
I hope it helps. Feel free to comment this page at the bottom and tell me if it helped. And go ahead and subscribe to Teach 4 Real on the right hand side of my website. You will get one email every week (or two:) with one of my articles on what it is like teaching at a low-income urban public school. Plus many of my articles have links to curriculum I’ve developed, with Lesson Plans and Handouts.
