To Kill a Mockingbird Film & Discussion

Movies help us experience each other and the world around us, can educate and enlighten us, and can lead to meaningful and much-needed discourse. Lights, Camera, Civics! hopes to be a catalyst for such conversations. For that reason, New Hampshire Humanities has awarded a grant to the NH Institute for Civics Education for film screenings in all ten NH counties to generate multigenerational conversations about law, justice, and civics.  The film chosen this year is To Kill A Mockingbird. Local teams made up of a lawyer, a teacher, and a high school student will lead the discussion, and our team for the March showing is Mr. Peter Gagnon, Mrs. Lee Anne LaPointe, and Bryce Gauthier. 

Mr. Peter Gagnon practiced law in Massachusetts for almost a decade before transitioning to a career in education. He is currently an adjuct at White Mountain Community College and a social studies teacher at Gorham High School.

Lee Anne LaPointe has been commited to her English classroom for the last twelve years, teaching from Montana to Alaska, and back to her hometown in New Hampshire. 

Bryce Gauthier is a senior at Gorham High School who loves literature and history. He is a leader in his school and community, holding positions as the senior class representative in National Honors Society, Vice President of his class in Student Council, and a member of the local Life of An Athlete group.
