This interactive site by the BBC is both a good introduction and a fine review for To Kill a Mockingbird. It has an interactive timeline, especially helpful to lower level students who might have problems sequencing the book. Reviewing sequence with students is important, and the interactive timeline is attractive and amusing, illustrated with student drawings. It can even lead to discussion about the various ways narratives reveal events in time: flashbacks, etc. Like other BBC literature sites, it offers a brief background on the author and the social background of the book. It gives options for plot, character, and theme review and interactive quizzes, as well as a sample question and answer with suggested time management for essay writing. Note to American teachers: The term" revise" in Britain is what you would call "review."

In the Classroom

Using an interactive whiteboard to construct the suggested essay layout and/or the sample answer would help students understand how to make their own essays stronger. If you enable them to make changes to the sample question, based upon their own ideas, it will prepare them to write better essays on the upcoming test. You could also offer this link from your teacher web page for students who seek review tools to use at home.

This creative web activity challenges students to prioritize and play against the clock to solve huge problems using grid computing. The activity features kid-friendly terms and even comic strip graphics and layouts to teach how scientists prioritize problems in order to "multitask" and achieve multiple successes. The skills of prioritizing can be applied to homework and long term assignments, as well. If you are working with students struggling with time management, this simulation will open the door to discussion of ways to prioritize and avaluate progress at intermediate checkpoints before tasks are due. This web challenge is interactive and requires FLASH, get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

This article, published in the George Lucas Foundation's Edutopia online journal, argues that the rigid time schedules found in most schools work to the detriment of both teachers and their students. It argues for a reexamination of some of the practices common in most schools, and suggests the consequences of continuing with current patterns.
