Inferring About Character: Atticus (Chapter 5)

New Review

As part of their study of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, class members participate in a silent discussion of the novel using a Chalk Talk chart. They then respond to the teacher's questions by writing their thoughts on the chart. Once the chart is completed, individuals review the charts before engaging in a full-class discussion.
