You will choose one of the projects below about To Kill a Mockingbird using the novel as evidence to guide your creation and to prove your understanding to the audience. You will present your work to the class and share where you found the evidence that you used to help design your project.
A. Draw the interior of the Radley home as you would imagine it to be. Remember that Harper Lee never took us directly inside the house during the action of the novel, so you will have to use your ability to infer based on the details discussed by characters in the story to help make decisions on what it would look like.
B. Illustrate a map of the town of Maycomb based on the description of the town provided by Harper Lee.
C. Atticus says, "if you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you'll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view […] until you climb into his skin and walk around in it." Imagine the shoes that four different characters from the book would wear. Draw the shoes and identify which character would wear them.
D. Create a billboard for the novel to generate interest for today's readers.
E. Create an updated book cover (front and back).
F. Create a collage with pictures and words illustrating the theme of the novel.
G. Create a collage that connects To Kill a Mockingbird with life today.
