Read To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
To Kill A Mockingbird
The novel, To Kill A Mockingbird, written by Harper Lee, was published in 1960.
It is a story about Scout Finch, 6, her brother, Jem, and their father, Atticus, in sleepy Maycomb, Alabama.The children spend much of their time with their friend, Dill, and in spying on their reclusive, mysterious neighbor, Boo Ridley. Atticus, a highly respected lawyer, defends a black man Tom Robinson against fabricated rape charges. The resulting events expose the children to the evils of racism, stereotyping, and prejudice.
Unfortunately, many schools have decided to ban To Kill a Mockingbird because it “contains racist, offensive, and insensitive language.” The language used in this novel reflects the attitudes of a particular period in American history. Some readers accept these facts while others find it difficult to overlook them.
However, this reader, believes that the book teaches about life in the past. Why the world is the way it is today. Proving that studying this novel can effectively show pre-teen students about the past and the impact it can have on human behavior today.
