from Cleveland Museum of Art

Program image

This lesson  uses historic photographs and works of art from The Cleveland Museum of Art's collection to help students become familiar with the sort of visual environment that may have inspired author Harper Lee. We discuss images according to themes such as people, places and the historical context of the 1930s.

Students must have completed reading and be familiar with the novel To Kill a Mockingbird and with the Great Depression in general.
