Mockingbird on a wireMockingbird on a wire | Flickr – Photo Sharing!

We are reading To Kill a Mockingbird in class right now. I would publish this picture and have the students blog on why this particular picture serves as an appropriate symbol for the novel. I would have them respond in a post of at least 250 words and include support from the text.

    What a nice connection between the image and the book. 🙂 I would be interested in their thoughts.

  2. I love this book, and I love how you would use flickr to discuss symbolism! What a great idea. I am sure the students would be able to make great connections.

  3. Excellent use of images. Your image adds value, it is not just used to make a page look pretty.

    Honestly, I wouldn’t recognize a mockingbird if it perched on my finger! This is a simple way to draw attention to the central image–and make the image literally meaningful!

    Patti,
    I love that book, even though it makes me cry! I love the imagery connection of the bird and the book. Wow, when you think about it several images from the story could be used to stimulate discussions. Great idea!
