Stand Together or Apart: A Thematic Unit for "The Chocolate War" by Robert Cormier and "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee.
Yinger, Lisa
This thematic unit is all about what a classic novel about race relations in the 1930s American South, "To Kill a Mockingbird," and a frequently banned contemporary teen story about a candy sale, "The Chocolate War," have in common. The unit considers what people have in common, what it means to stand apart, and what individuals do when forced to choose. It takes student readers day-by-day and chapter-by-chapter first through "The Chocolate War" (39 chapters) and then through "To Kill a Mockingbird" (31 chapters). The unit gives vocabulary for each chapter, offers suggested activities following readings, presents post-reading questions for students, and lists topics for discussion or final essays. (NKA)
