The well dries up…
Does writing quizzes for my classes count as my writing quota for the day? Today, other than this blog, that’s all I’ve written. Well, I do get bogged down at school, where I dip into my creativity well a little more some days than others. I am, however, coming up to doing some exciting literature in class. To Kill a Mockingbird is my favourite novel of the 20th century, and one of the most important. I have the privilidge to teach it to my grade 9 class beginning next week. My favourite quote from the novel, is one I use often for anyone who is judgemental, prejudiced and just plain uneducated about anyone who could be viewed as ‘other’:
‘You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view – until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.’ ~Atticus Finch
I can’t wait to read it with my class again. Other than Pride and Prejudice, To Kill a Mockingbird is the novel I’ve read so many times over.Explore posts in the same categories: Literature comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
