This HyperDoc is designed to be used for background research/discussion before reading To Kill a Mockingbird.  It has five sections that can be completed separately, all at once, or with discussion after each one.  Set up for a group of 3-5, but can also be completed individually with slight modifications.

Sections include:

1. About the Author - Harper Lee & Her Family 

2. Growing Up in the 1930s

3.  The Great Depression

4. Jim Crow & Civil Rights

5. The Scottsboro Boys (This section requires the PBS documentary, Scottsboro: An American Tragedy, but can be deleted if that's not something you will watch in class.)
