A carousel-based, independent learning lesson designed to introduce students to key facts and context for To Kill A Mockingbird. There are six stations on the carousel which focus on: the main character, Scout's Family, The Great Depression, Tom Robinson, Setting (including The Great Depression), Racism and Harper Lee. The slides provide the material for the carousel and should be printed. Students move around the carousels working in groups to answer the questions in the 3-page accompanying handout. This activity requires students to engage independently with key information about the novel and makes an effective introduction. Groups can be differentiated to support less-skilled students. You many choose to use a timer at each station.
