Bring Maycomb to Life w/ this Guide for "To Kill a Mockingbird" A Quick Synopsis of To Kill a Mockingbird (Contains Plot Spoilers) The classic story of To Kill a Mockingbird has touched generations since it was written in the late 1950’s. Set during the great depression, in Maycomb, Alabama, the story centers around the Finch family. Atticus, the father, a prominent lawyer, takes a case defending an innocent black man. Although Atticus clearly proves his client is innocent, the all-white jury still convicts the defendant. Atticus is raising his two young children, Scout, and Jem.

With his choice to defend Tom Robinson, Atticus's family are exposed to the pressures of racism and hatred. During the novel, the reader gets to see the trial through the eyes of a youngster, free from the prejudices’ that adulthood brings. Scout, Atticus’ young daughter, also at this time has a fascination with the Radley home. The story climaxes when Bob Ewell, the man who framed Tom, seeks out Scout to take revenge for Atticus making a mockery of him in court. 10 English jokes to make learning English fun.

Läsförståelsestrategier. Att arbeta med läsförståelsestrategier är inget nytt för svensklärare, men tack vare det utvidgade kollegiet sprids många bra varianter för att förtydliga och synliggöra detta arbete.

Som språklärare har jag inte fått någon formell utbildning kring detta, så inspirationen för min del kommer från nätet. Jag har tittat på de jättetydliga filmerna som Susanne Nystedt har gjort, kollat in Josef Sahlins sida, kikat in på En läsande klass och läst Annika Sjödahls tydliga beskrivningar. Grunden för dessa strategier ligger hos Barbro Westlund och hennes bok Att undervisa i läsförståelse. Från denna bas kommer strategierna Att förutspå, Att ställa frågor, Att reda ut oklarheter och Att sammanfatta.

Den femte strategin finns inte med i Westlunds bok, men förekommer bland annat i En läsande klass: Att skapa inre bilder. Det jag har gjort är att jag har gjort sammanfattningar av de olika strategierna med hjälp av canva.com. Att förutspå – to predict att ställa frågor – to ask questions. Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? (Sonnet 18) Read poems by this poet William Shakespeare was born on April 23, 1564, in Stratford-on-Avon. The son of John Shakespeare and Mary Arden, he was probably educated at the King Edward VI Grammar School in Stratford, where he learned Latin and a little Greek and read the Roman dramatists.

At eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway, a woman seven or eight years his senior. Together they raised two daughters: Susanna, who was born in 1583, and Judith (whose twin brother died in boyhood), born in 1585. Little is known about Shakespeare’s activities between 1585 and 1592. Robert Greene’s A Groatsworth of Wit alludes to him as an actor and playwright. In 1594, Shakespeare joined the Lord Chamberlain’s company of actors, the most popular of the companies acting at Court. While Shakespeare was regarded as the foremost dramatist of his time, evidence indicates that both he and his contemporaries looked to poetry, not playwriting, for enduring fame. Shakespeare wrote more than thirty plays. Poetry Drama.
