    Is your class studying To Kill a Mockingbird?

    This website has been designed to complement your teaching of the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. It is constructed to be completed in a 60 minute lesson, finishing with the quiz. Ideally, this site should be used as a resource for classes who have already encountered the book. A lot of the content, if not all of it, will not make sense to a student who is unfamiliar with the story and its characters.
    The pages each pertain to a particular theme or topic of the novel and the activities therein can be done individually or in groups. The teacher can use the material here and the activities provided as a whole class activity, or, as a self-paced learning activity for the students to undertake by themselves. A lot of questions are asked and the activities are made to be interactive, it is our suggestion that the students might want to write their answers down and hand them in as well as writing them on the already-made posts on the discussion board which are able to be viewed by all.

    Now, the legal system has a purpose. It stands to prevent anarchy and chaos by enforcing a set of rules and norms on those underneath it. It helps to maintain the social order. The story of To Kill a Mockingbird is centered on a court case. It sheds light on the way the law worked at that time, in that society and shows what effects that that particular legal system had.
    However, at the end of the trial, an innocent man was found guilty and a guilty man was allowed to leave without even a slap on the wrist. The result could not be described as just or as fair. Even so, there were no riots, the system did not collapse and majority of those that left felt that the legal system had performed its duty adequately.

    Were the events that took place fair?

    Loss Of Innocence

    In the book, the children have an innocent outlook on the world. They believe that everyone in the world is equal to each other and colour should not matter. However, as seen in the book, this innocence is soon taken away from them all to quickly as they begin to discover the evils which lurk around every corner.
    The children, Scout and Jem, lose this innocence and learn of the harsh ways of the world through the prejudice they experience regarding Tom Robinson's case. By witnessing a man be wrongly punished for a crime he did not commit, they start to see how unfair the world can be.
