Teaching "To Kill a Mockingbird" Today: Coming to Terms with Race, Racism, and America's Novel
Macaluso, Michael
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v61 n3 p279-287 Nov-Dec 2017
This article urges educators to responsibly teach, discuss, and read against "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee for fear that it may otherwise perpetuate subtle racist ideologies in generations of students who continue to read it in schools. One way to do this is through a comparative lens of old and new racism.
