This is a video and should be shown. It takes place in a courtroom and speaks students’ language. They loved this one. 😉 This led to a discussion of unjust systems and good people who try to change them (Atticus Finch, much?). Additionally, we discussed Scout’s experience in school- and their experience in school.
Review foreshadowing. As a class we compiled these possible foreshadows (with the gentle and almost undetectable hints from yours truly) on a Google doc. I put a blank sheet up on the smart board, and as students voice their ideas, I type them. Then I post this on Google Classroom so students have access to the notes we created in class. Of course many of them take personal notes in their notebooks.
Read aloud- chapter 8
Assign chapters 9-10 for homework. Promise a quick quiz for the following class session.
