This workshop introduces Facing History’s resource, Teaching Mockingbird, which incorporates civic education, ethical reflection, and historical context into a literary exploration of Harper Lee’s beloved novel. It offers a fresh approach that integrates multimedia resources, historical sources, and Common Core-aligned strategies that deepen students’ understanding of the novel and illuminate fundamental questions of human behavior. Participants will discover new interdisciplinary teaching strategies that reinforce historical and literacy skill and will receive a free copy of To Kill a Mockingbird.
Recommended for 6-12th grade English Language Arts, Social Studies or Humanities educators teaching the novel.
There is a registration fee of $10 which includes lunch and materials. Register online here.
