Get out a) your planner, b) your To Kill a Mockingbird Novel Guide and turn to Chapter Sixteen Study Questions. Let’s answer them.
Homework: Read to the end of Chapter 17. Topic submission form due tomorrow! Friday, we’ll take the whole day to research.

Let’s re-read pages where Atticus discusses the group of men at the jailhouse. Focus question: What word does he use to describe this group of men? Think, pair, share: what connotations are associated with that word?
Get out your To Kill a Mockingbird Novel Guide and turn to Chapter Sixteen’s Analysis.
In Chapters 15-16, we see MOB MENTALITY “Mob Mentality” = how a group of normally ethical people change the way they think/behave in a group. When one person makes an unethical decision and convinces other people to follow, mob mentality is created and causes people to act/behave in ways that their ethics would otherwise be against. How do we see mob mentality in these chapters? What is one example from our real world in which we’ve seen mob mentality happen?
It’s strange that a normally quiet courtroom is packed with observers on the day of Tom Robinson’s trial. The townspeople are taking it so light-heartedly as to picnic in front of the courthouse as they wait for the trial. What TONE does the author seem to be displaying towards the Maycomb citizens? REVIEW: What is tone? What is Lee trying to suggest about this civilized society? What textual evidence do we have to support this?
Let’s continue reading Chapter 17 of To Kill a Mockingbird. Homework: Read to the end of Chapter 17.
