To Kill A Mockingbird

TKAM. This book is taught partly because of its canonical merit (literary value) and the themes and issues it addresses. Such issues that this book develops are not new to society today, but it allows students to experience firsthand through their reading the sensitive issues of prejudice and racism. It provokes ideas about how cultures and values differ among groups of people and how individuals come to choose their own value system.
