Periods 1 & 2, Post 7: The Setting of "To Kill a Mockingbird"

Hi, guys! So, the main focus of this week has been your projects on the Great Depression, and its influence on various aspects of American life. So, what I want you to consider is this: what did you learn while researching your topic, that you didn't know already? How has your research helped you to understand the lives of the characters in To Kill a Mockingbird better? Your comments will count as a homework assignment grade for the second marking period of the spring semester.


  1. The research project about the Great Depression really help me learn how the people in the book "TO Kill a Mocking Bird" lived. I also learned many new things that happen during the Great Depression that I didn't know about. Some of the things I learn that i didn't know would be, that the day of the stock market crashing is called black Tuesday.
    Life was hard during the Great depression. There was less jobs, most people was unemployed and some people just didn't have food at all.

    My research topic was music during the Great Depression and I learned that the music that we listen to now is extremely different from the music during the Great Depression. There was so many singers that was creating music that everyone loved. Life was very different because we have ipods and mp3 players, they had record players that needed top winded up.
