This week, we have reached the conclusion of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird. We have focused not only on the novel's resolution, but also on the significance of the book's title.
Therefore, as this week's topic, I want you to discuss the title's meaning. Be sure to link Atticus' statement that "it's a sin to kill a mockingbird" with what we learned during the last few chapters of the book. Who are the "mockingbirds" to whom Harper Lee is referring? What are the "sins" committed against them?
Your responses will count as a homework assignment grade for the third marking period of the spring semester.
