Definitely a classic F novel that would be an IR. It won the Pulitzer Prize and is about multiple topics of controversy, class, and race. UDL- 8.3. EL- 9 and 30. http://teachingtokillamockingbird.com/ #UCFLAE3414F17

JocelynNolton I enjoyed this book when we read it in high school! Definitely a classic for sure. I like your resource also. It's great that they have different activities for the chapters. 5y

It was a great book with breathtaking illustrations that really make you feel like you were looking out over the New York skyline.
