We began our study of To Kill a Mockingbird in class today by discussing perception — what it is and what affects it. Then students received a photocopy of ch. 1 of the novel. I began reading out loud to them while they annotated for:
- Character/plot/setting exposition
- Possible foreshadowing
- Small and medium questions (should be lots of these!)
We paused our reading and discussed annotations a few times before the end of class. Homework: finish reading and annotating ch. 1 for next class.
