A Multigenre Inquiry Project
My Essential Question
Hello and welcome to this site! My name is Emma Newton and this website explores the idea of racism and empathy as it relates to Harper Lee's novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, and how it expressed throughout a variety of genres.
This project was created for Dr. Alan Brown's Education 354 course at Wake Forest University. These various representations of racism and empathy are the product of "extensive inquiry" intended to provide us with a better understanding of the human experience as it relates to the essential question.
