'Hey, Boo': The private life of To Kill a Mockingbird | ELA Novels | Scoop.it

To Kill a Mockingbird was published on July 11th, 1960, and Harper Lee's first and only novel has been a publishing phenomenon ever since. Although its first printing by the venerable publishing house of J.B. Lippincott was a mere 5,000 copies, it was an immediate bestseller, and has consistently sold a million copies a year for over 50 years.

Examples of Empathy in To Kill a Mockingbird

Examples of Empathy in To Kill a Mockingbird | ELA Novels | Scoop.it

Empathy is defined as identifying with another person's feelings, or emotionally placing one's self in the place of another. The trait is a theme in Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize winning novel, "To Kill a Mockingbird...."

 

The overall character of Atticus Finch is an example of how empathy is used in the novel. He displays empathy in his strong beliefs of racial equality, which was uncommon in the 1930s in Alabama.

Define in your own words; what  is empathy?  Give an example in your life from a movie, book or TV show you have seen.

Not a place a HS would look for a TKM lesson - you will not find deep literary analysis, but it does include key background materials in different media and activities that require students to think critically about book themes.  Support this with reviews (from the period) and contemporary readings about the place of this book in the literary canon.  And Schmoop.com has some surprisingly good material.

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee - review | ELA Novels | Scoop.it

'Entertainment as well as lessons of behaviour and dedication'Harper Lee did an amazing job when writing this novel. The way she tells such a serious tale in such a warm and humorous way is the main reason for its success.
