Year 9 English – To Kill A Mockingbird
Friday, October 25, 2019
This week at Assumption College English Program, the Year 9 students began studying the classic American novel “To Kill A Mockingbird” with Mr Dan Cracknell. The novel tells the story of Scout, a young girl growing up in the racially segregated South, who’s father is tasked with defending a falsely accused African American man.
This week, the students researched and created character profiles, in anticipation of beginning to read the novel next week. The students will read and answer questions on each chapter of the novel over the period of Term 2, culminating in longer written essays.
