How can teaching To Kill a Mockingbird through a contemporary lens help students make connections between history and our world today?


Our Teaching Mockingbird study guide approaches the characters and setting alongside an analysis of morality and the choices people make in difficult times.

The guide will help you address these threads in your classroom by integrating historical context, documents, and sources that reflect the African American voices absent from Mockingbird's narration.

This resource integrates:

  • literary analysis
  • multimedia resources
  • innovative teaching
  • activities that meet State Standards for English/Language Arts classes
