Plan to attend this very special teacher institute:
A Study of the Novel and Film
June 24-27, 2012 • Monroeville, Alabama
Teachers are invited to spend three days in historic Monroeville, Alabama, to study To Kill a Mockingbird, the novel and the movie. In addition to enjoying the atmosphere and sites of the town on which Maycomb, Alabama, is based, participants will attend sessions lead by scholars (literature, history and film) and a documentary filmmaker to discuss the origins and legacy of the masterpiece.
A highpoint of the teacher institute will be viewing the movie in the courtroom of the Monroe County Courthouse. Co-sponsors will provide rooms at the Monroeville Holiday Inn Express (2 teachers per room), and all meals and texts. Continuing education units (SARIC) are available.
