Sociogram comes from two roots socio- referring to people (as in society) and -gram, referring to a something written or recorded (as in telegram).

Wow! This is fun already!

Your task is to build a sociogram. Take characters from To Kill a Mockingbird and represent them with shapes.

Do this:

  1. Symbolize 11 To Kill a Mockingbird characters.
  2. Symbolize each character with appropriate:
    1. Shape
    2. Dimensions
    3. Color (texture, line, etc,)
    4. Proximity to others
  3. Make two copies:
    1. images only
    2. images and captions to explain the above four considerations
  4. Export your Keynote or Pages document as a pdf. Include your name in the title, e.g. “Shaffi’s sociogram”.

For Example:

Your first sociogram is wordless, containing only carefully arranged shapes, each representing a different character from To Kill a Mockingbird.


Then you annotate your sociogram to explain your shape, color, size, placement decisions.

This will take the place of an essay.
