Delivered in printable Word Document and PDF formats, these instructional materials save teachers valuable time at home without sacrificing rigor in the classroom. By engaging with this resource, students will do the following:

  • Analyze the author’s word choices and phrasing to discern what she means explicitly and implicitly about Aunt Alexandra
  • Draw reasonable inferences about Jem’s thinking in terms of how he perceives Aunt Alexandra
  • Discern the meaning of complex vocabulary and phrases in context, taking into consideration both denotative definitions and connotative associations

This resource may facilitate small-group discussions in which students decode language and pose/respond to questions relating to plot, broad topics, and character development. Using this resource for structured guidance, students will improve their ability to present information, conclusions, and supporting textual evidence clearly and convincingly.
