Even if you've been teaching this novel for years, Facing History’s online course, A New Approach to Teaching To Kill a Mockingbird, will help you bring a fresh approach to your class’s exploration of Harper Lee’s classic work. This course, and the free accompanying resource, Teaching Mockingbird, expand the focus of study beyond the purely literary. You will learn how to incorporate historical context, civics, and ethical reflection into your teaching in ways that deepen students’ understanding of the novel, enrich their knowledge of history, and illuminate fundamental questions of human behavior.
