We have been following the Reading Style approach for two weeks or so. Today, I’d like to break away from this approach to show you scenes from a documentary about Monroeville, the town that inspired Harper Lee to create the fictitious town of Maycomb.
Remember that your assignment for this unit will require you to play the descendents of one of Maycomb’s families. Thus, this documentary may be very useful to you.
Please divide a new page into three sections. Give the sections the following headings: Monroeville as Inspiration, The people of Monroeville, and How much has changed?
Remember, too, that the documentary still has a narrative. Are there any parallels between the narrator’s “interaction” with Harper Lee, and Scout’s interaction with Boo Radley?
