To Kill a Mockingbird and Extra Credit for Honors English I

mockingbirdYou can find literally hundreds of websites dedicated to To Kill a Mockingbird. I have picked out my favorites and put them in the literature resources on the right side of the page. For your extra credit this six weeks, surf around and find some interesting information that will be useful for students studying To Kill a Mockingbird. When you make your comment, remember that you’re helping other students to find useful material, and they can’t do this if you don’t put the web address in there! You won’t get any credit without the link to the site!

magnifying-glass-189254_640As you look remember that .edu sites are generally the most reliable. This isn’t just an exercise for extra credit or just for finding out information about TKAM; it’s also about evaluating the reliability of information on the internet. Consider the credentials of the person or organization that posted the information.

noNow, of course, everyone already knows about Novel Guide, Cliffs notes, Shmoop Guides, eNotes, Pink Monkey Notes, and the standard novel sites. I’m not talking about those kinds of sites. They’re off limits. Really look around for something that might not be obvious to just anyone looking for help. Anything that is related to the history or the themes is useful. It doesn’t just have to be directly about TKAM.

OK. I found it. Now What?

Write a review of the site. What makes this a valuable site? What will someone find there. Is this a good place to find photographs of the era? Does it have biographical information about Harper Lee? Is it the best site ever for videos related to TKAM?

The End Result

In the end, I will compile a list of all of the best resources on a post here on Logophiles Unleashed for students through the ages to visit and find what they need to know to study To Kill a Mockingbird. I will credit you as the student who recommends the site and put a short version of your recommendation. You will be immortalized! If you don’t want your name posted, of course, I will just list the site with your recommendation. You’re always in control of that!

There has to be a catch

sad faceThere is. These sites are first come, first served. Once someone has posted and reviewed a site, it’s no longer eligible. You can get points for going to other people’s sites and commenting on how useful you found them, but the big bucks are for finding your own resource. I will be gong through the comments once a day. Remember that comments don’t post until I’ve read them. So you’re saying, “What if I post mine the same day as someone else and don’t know it?” Well, the comments are time-stamped. I will reply, and let you know that you weren’t first and give you a few points for giving it a shot. Then you can go out and try again. The more work you had to do to find your resource, the less likely it is that someone else already found it.

Me First!

As always, I’m going to go first by reviewing a site that I didn’t already refer you to in the Literature Links. This way, you can get an idea of how to write your comment and get an idea of what I’m looking for.

FHAOlogoFacing History and Ourselves has an article on Stereotyping that is excellent and poses some great questions. It is a site created for educational purposes that is reliable and well-researched, listing its bibliography for the information it uses. It was difficult to find academic information on stereotyping; I like this site because it gives several examples to help students understand what stereotyping is and what it isn’t. It lays out a somewhat difficult concept in easy-to-understand terms.

The limitation of the site is that it does not incorporate visuals, which are important to many students. It does, however, point visitors to further resources. The Facing History and Ourselves website in general is a good site whose mission statement is “to engage students of diverse backgrounds in an examination of racism, prejudice, and antisemitism in order to promote the development of a more humane and informed citizenry.” Fighting racism is a theme of the book, making this an excellent resource for demonstrating how To Kill a Mockingbird is still relevant in today’s culture. I encourage students to browse the site.

 

OK… Now, it’s your turn. What are the best sites out there to help students of TKAM that they might not find without you?

  1. I believe the web site The Big Read is a really useful sight. There are different places you can go to find out about the book. There’s a place to find out information about Harper Lee, there is a picture of Lee in her young days, there is a readers guide of information about the book, and so much more. I have found all of the information in the web sight very useful up to this point. This is a web sight I have looked at prior to this assignment. I absolutely love it. I fell in love with the sight as soon as I first saw it. Just all around I think the information is useful, and very understandable.

    1. This is a great site! It is one I’ve used myself to find resources. It’s sponsored by the NEA, the National Endowment for the Arts, so you know they will have first class information! Good work!

      I recommend for your classmates to check it out!

  2. Melbourne High School (Yes, all the way from Australia) has a website devoted to TKAM. I found it very helpful for looking at themes to looking at characters. It has ample information on themes like Loss of Innocence and Steryotyping. It’s a great source for understanding where and when certain events take place in the book. It even talkes about Harper Lee’s style and structure of the novel. In addition to the pages of characters and pages of themes, the website also has background information on the historical text in the book, The Great Depression, Civil Rights, and much more! I hope this is a great source for everyone because I found it to be very helpful. Here’s the link to the site:

I also read Aden’s second website, and I liked how someone gave their personal opinion. They also gave a lot of good opinions about certain topics in the book.

It includes topics such as:characters, themes, narratives, and other things that could be found useful when studying and reading this book. It also explores themes that I wouldn’t have considered, such as, education. A con of using this site is that there are no visuals to help get a visual of what is being discussed.

    This is a good site for studying . I use this to study before my test on the night before the test. I have found this site to be reliable and it has many great features. Some are, questions to quiz yourself about each and every chapter itself, background information, not only about Harper Lee but also her characters within TKAM. If someone goes onto this site they will find information about the novel, structure of the novel, stereotyping, attitudes in the text, themes, the viewpoint, and even Harper Lee’s technique. There is info about the dialogue and plenty of information about the book. You can even download the guide. Which is really helpful. There is no pictures or videos but it is still an amazing website for studying the TKAM novel.

It includes themes, characters, and photos to help tie what is being said and what is happening in the book into their summaries.

    This was a great site for understanding the book’s themes. It discusses all of the themes that you touched on in class, so it will be great for the TKAM final! This site also had a character analysis page that was very helpful for getting a basic understanding of the characters. It was easy to access information in the site, and is very helpful for understanding the themes. Reviews by students said that the sight was helpful for them too.

    Another great website i found was Book Rags (http://www.bookrags.com/notes/tkm/#gsc.tab=0). This webiste has many useful tools to help your understanding including author/content, plot summary, major characters, objects/ places, quotes, topic tracking and summarys of every chapter in the book.

  12. So far, To Kill a Mockingbird has been my favorite book yet. However, when I don’t understand some parts of the book such as context and themes, I use http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebitesize/english_literature/prosemockingbird/. I just recently found this website, but it comes in handy while trying to find more than just a summary of the chapters and book. This BBC website does more than just explain themes and plot; it also features a list of things, such as, context, characters, and even sample questions. It is a great website to grasp a better understanding of the book and its themes. It even displays relatively humorous videos about the characters! When I don’t have questions on the context of the book, i have questions on each chapter or the characters behaviors. I found a website called http://www.universalteacher.org.uk/gcse/mockingbird.htm. It is very reliable in displaying a chapter by chapter study guide. Instead of directly telling you the summary of each paragraph, it actually asks you questions about each chapter to see if you read the most important things and if you comprehended them. Other than offering information on the chapters, this website also helps with each relatively important character involved in the novel. It also displays the structure and outline as well as even info on Harper Lee. I recently discovered these two websites, but they are of ample help to me so I can understand the questions I have about the novel. I highly recommend these websites, and I hope you get the opportunity to check them out!

  13. I have discovered a few helpful sites covering information on To Kill a Mockingbird, but in my personal opinion, these two would cover much of the information necessary to have a clear understanding of Harper Lee’s novel.

    http://www.quia.com/quiz/1578355.html provides a 60-question quiz that covers information from all chapters of the book. If one has read the story, several of the test questions will appear obvious. However, taking the test helps reinforce the distinctions between the book’s characters, making it easier to understand. I recommend using this website as a study resource only once one has completed the book.

    While quia.com was a helpful site, my favorite study source so far is http://files.harpercollins.com/HarperAcademic/ToKillaMockingbird_TG.pdf. This file is a teacher’s guide, rather than a student study resource. However, this site has proved to be helpful. Its numerous questions are thought-provoking, but still easy to interpret. Answering these questions gives the reader a clearer understanding of the book. Beware, though: there is no discussion of of story elements, like plot, characters, or quotes to be found on the website. Fortunately, there are study resources and video links to be found at the bottom of the file. In the end, Harper Collins is worth checking out.

  17. To Kill a Mockingbird has been my favorite book we have read. I enjoy reading books like this (I have previously read The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, which i also loved), but there are times when I’m reading and have to read over the entire page again simply because I don’t understand. I’ve used a few of the sites listed by others, but I really enjoyed looking at this one: http://www.slideshare.net/linaizzie/to-kill-a-mockingbird-notes
    This website is a bunch of slides that explain the story. The slides include the characters and who they are. It also includes the summary/ notes of each chapter. Another reason why I like this website is because I can understand the explanations. They also include quotes that are explained which is helpful because the language is different and a little complicated. This website in general is one of my favorites and definitely recommend it for people having a hard time understanding the book and those who want to study.

  18. To kill a mocking bird, by Harper Lee, is a great and interesting book! However, with all the symbolism and themes, it can be difficult to understand. An important background follows the book along with its setting. Without this, the ideas and the themes of the book won’t be conveyed as easily. In order to understand these many themes and motifs accurately, I recommend the website: http://www.slideshare.net/tranceking/to-kill-a-mockingbird-theme-motifs-symbols . This website includes 25 slides that accurately describe the different themes in the book . Some people might have been confused about what reference a mocking bird has to do with book. If your one of those people than viewing this website will help greatly! It gives a great description and meaning as to what it means to kill a mocking bird. Not only does it explain themes, but it also involves descriptions and analysis on character’s actions that you might have missed the meaning of. Another great website I recommend is http://tokillamockingbirdquotes.org/ . This website includes different quotes the main characters of the book. The quotes are from important sections and scenes of the book so it shows where you should focus you attention. Along with notes, it also included a deep analysis and summary to help study. This website has some great pictures to take a look at that show an idea of the clothing the characters wore. One more great website to look at for the background of Harper Lee and the setting is http://www.neabigread.org/books/mockingbird/readers-guide/historical-context/ . This website even includes a short timeline of Harper Lee and Civil Rights. It provides an amazing background of the historical part of the book and there is also a detailed introduction/summary to the book. These are great websites to use to study for To Kill a Mockingbird and I hope everyone takes a look at them.

This sight gives people that liked TKAM a little look into Go set a Watchman. I found it very interseting how they say that Harper Lee gives Atticus a dark side and I’m currently looking into that more. It also gives a little background of Atticus and I think gives a well description of her for people just now looking into the book. This sight has me really excited to look into “Watchman” and the difference in the two books.

This novel by Harper Lee is one of my favorites so far! To help clear up some vague ideas and concepts, I chose http://www.aresearchguide.com/mock.html to be a profitable source of information. This website provides summaries and analysis of chapters. The summaries aren’t just from that website, it also uses other summaries from different websites. It’s variation of sources help the reader validate the hidden secrets in TKAM (To Kill A Mockingbird).

This book has some great points that it gets across to the reader, such as not to discriminate by skin color and to not take people at face value. Since it was a little challenging for me to grasp at first, I went to websites and family and friends who have read the novel to further elaborate on the meaning of some of the symbolism’s in the book, and this website i found most help.

  23. To kill a mocking bird can be confusing to read as I mentioned before because of the different examples of symbolism, themes, and ideas. It can be easy to miss one because there are so many! However, with the help Mrs. Rains, I have found the PERFECT website to study off of! Other websites I had mentioned before discussed the themes nicely but this one really gives a thorough and detailed description of the main ideas and backgrounds such as the loss of innocence which I found to have come up a lot in the book. This website even includes the story behind Go Set a Watchman. It explains some of differences between the two books. The website also includes a section where it talks about the Great Depression which also affects the book. The time period and setting is crucial to understanding the book. Therefore, I highly recommend everyone to take a look at this website to review the TKAM test. It will be extremely useful!

I think that this side will help a reader not only more fully understand this novel, but also learn how to study and take notes on future novels.
    I have also found this app and website “www.yorknotes.com” called York Notes (which is available on iTunes and Google Play). It gives you many of the same characteristics of the website i mentioned above, including help for writing an essay! The app is free, but the information does cost money ($5-$8).

The second one is http://www.davidclaudon.com/Mockingbird/mockingbird3.html. This website was so helpful when it came to studdying for quizzes. It starts out with the chapters and it will say vocabulary and then it has some quiz questions. It groups the chapters together, which is unfortunate, but the quizzes do help. After the quizzes, it has quotes and explanations for different themes. Although the website is about ten years old, it is still very useful and helped me more than prepare for quizzes. I highly recommend both of these websites.

It also had some background on Harper Lee as well. Another website i found was especially fantastic and it is https://marianamarianaomilaurentim.wikispaces.com/home. I found this site outstanding due to the fact that it went over all of the themes in the book. A detailed summary of the main characters (although I found it odd they didn’t have one of Scout). It also displayed key quotes and discussion question from throughout the book. It also analyzes the book as well. I feel that these two websites together will help me better understand the book and enable me to do well on the exam. (hopefully neither of these websites have been used and they both work.)

  28. Reading To Kill a Mockingbird has reinforced my knowledge on what to look for in a book. With the many literary devices such as loss of innocence, social conformity, and duality used in the book, I needed a source to help me understand what each of them meant. I have found an excellent source to help me study and review. http://tokillamocking.tripod.com/id64.html. It includes character descriptions, tests, vocabulary, allusions, chapter analysis, and many more! It also provides some background information about the writing of book and Harper Lee. I have used this site to help me study for Mrs. Rains’ test. This book opened my eyes to racism and show people treated others in the time of Maycomb county.

    1. Ah, aren’t older sisters great sometimes? I never had one, but always wished I had. I have a brother who is 11 years younger. (I’m not sure he would endorse the great older sister theory…)

      Anyway, this is a great site! Good work!

    I find this website particularly useful because of the multiple elements it has to help you study. It provides character analysis, chapter summaries, and a discussion of the multiple themes of the book. Although the themes aren’t all of the ones we discussed in class, the site does add a rather interesting one- Deceptive Appearances. This wasn’t something that I particularly took note of in the book, but after reading the discussion on Dolphous Raymond, Mrs. Dubose, and Boo Radley, I was very happy that I had stumbled upon the site. I highly suggest checking out the site, especially the Deceptive Appearances discussion.
