Transcript of How is the novel To Kill a Mockingbird a bildungsroman?
A bildungsroman is a novel about the early years of a characters growth and development.
Jem Finch and Dill
People of Maycomb
At school not only does Scout learn her basic writing and (more) reading, she also learns about the lives of those around her and what kinds of situations they are in.
The people of Maycomb all teach Scout to grow up in some way. Whether it be acting like a lady, understanding more about the trial or learning in general at school.
To Kill a Mockingbird: How is This Novel a Bildungsroman?
We believe that the novel To kill a Mockingbird is a bildungsroman because it shows the maturation of the main character Scout throughout the novel.

"You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view.. until you climb in his skin and walk around in it."
We've broken the presentation down into two main categories that have assisted Scouts growth...
Jem and Dill help Scout grow up throughout the story from giving her the knowledge to understand the characteristics of the people in Maycomb
Dill gives her the thought of maybe experiencing "love" for the first time.
When visiting the church Jem and Scout are confronted by a black woman who does not want them there. This teaches Scout more about diversity and how the black people feel.
Following their father and sticking up for him was a great feat for Scout and Jem. It forced Scout to grow up in a way because she had to get involved in a serious matter that could have been dangerous.
In the trial scene everyone around Scout was saying she didn't know what was going on. But, since Scout had been through so much leading up to that event she did understand.
