To Kill a Mockingbird:
Theme Handout Presentation We start here! Conformity versus Individuality! Lets start with... A dictionary definition of... Conformity: Conformity is behaviour that follows the usual standards which are expected by a group or society Individuality: Individuality is about having the qualities that make a person or thing different from others Remember... But lets take it into context... Definition of terms in To Kill a Mockingbird Conformity: Conformity is behaviour that is favoured or practiced by the majority of the people Individuality: Individuality is behaviour that follows one's own opinion of a situation without being influenced by other's opinions or experience, and it is also about making a stand that distinguishes one from the crowd based on ones moral courage Quotes to express the theme: 1." " It's best to begin reading with a fresh mind. You tell him I'll take over from here to undo the damage." "Ma'am?" "Your father does not know how to teach. You can take a seat now." "
---Conversation between Scout and Miss Caroline Fisher, pg 23 2. “Aunt Alexandra was fanatical on the subject of my attire. I could not possibly hope to be a lady if I wore breeches; when I said I could do nothing in a dress,she said I wasn’t supposed to be doing things that required pants.”
--- Scout’s recount on conversation with Aunt Alexandra, pg 87 3. “Wh - oh yes, you mean why do I pretend? Well, it’s very simple,” he said. “Some folks don’t – like the way I live. Now I could say the hell with ‘em, I don’t care if they don’t like it. I do say I don’t care if they don’t like it, right enough – but I don’t say the hell with ‘em, see?”
--- Scout and Dolphus Raymond, pg 206 & 207 "...confident that you gentlemen would go along with them on the assumption – the evil assumption – that all Negroes lie, that all Negroes are basically immoral beings, that all Negro men are not to be trusted around our women, an assumption one associates with minds of their caliber. “
---Atticus , pg 210-211 “The shutters and doors of the Radley house were closed on Sundays, another thing alien to Maycomb’s ways: closed doors only meant illness and cold weather only”

---Scout’s comment on the Radley’s Themes Conforming with society is not always the morally right thing to do Having individuality is alright as people need not conform with the society since people are entitled to their own beliefs. But lets move to the real thing... The pressure to conform to the social expectations of society is greater when growing up compared to being still young. 1. The following themes shown above have helped Harper Lee develop many characters in “To Kill a Mockingbird”.
