Free Mockingbird Unit I have slowly been adding curriculum to the site, yet already THOUSANDS of educators have downloaded my Romeo and Juliet Starter Unit. I’ve found many of you are interested in my Famous Facebook Profiles for Character Analysis, which I have also included here with characters from To Kill a Mockingbird. Just like my very popular Romeo and Juliet Unit, this packet has quizzes, midterms, and a final exam, as well as a few strategies and handouts that might be helpful for new teachers, or teachers who are overwhelmed and unsupported (which seems to be almost all of us, right?). This is not a full unit, and not meant to be representative of how I teach TKAM.

Many of the resources once available on Etext are now available via VIRGO, the primary access point for all U.Va. Library digital texts and images. In the course of migrating thousands of texts from Etext to VIRGO, it was determined that certain resources were not eligible for inclusion. Many of the texts that were not migrated can be found among other university online text collections, Google Books, and Project Gutenberg. We regret any inconvenience this may cause you and we wish you the best with your research.

Maps in Literature for Youth To truly understand the history of conflict in the Middle East or the need for conservation efforts in Africa, youth need a combination of experiences. Characters in books for youth like The Breadwinner by Deborah Ellis and Endangered by Eliot Schrefer bring global issues to the forefront, while the maps in these books help youth better understand the context of these conflicts and dilemmas.
