worms A type of caterpillar used by fishermen in the south of America Lorenzo Dow A fiery Methodist preacher Unreliable Narrator? Scout is telling the story as an adult, but often flashes back to her perspective as a little girl. Her use of flashbacks forces us to keep two things in mind:
1. Scout tells the story as an adult, so we learn certain details that Scout could not have known as a child,
2. During flashbacks, Scout as a little girl does not always understand everything happening around her, so we as readers must make inferences to come to our own conclusions about events in the plot. hookworms A disease caused by the parasite hookworms.

We ALL have our own dialect. Grammar, punctuation, and vocabulary all influence a person's dialect. Our dialect is different from people in other parts of Australia. Because the book takes place in Alabama, the characters in TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD also have a unique dialect. Many of the words they use include contractions. "Ah -- I won 'em from him." "Won them? How?" "We were playin' strip poker
up yonder by the fishpool." What do you notice about the difference between
Atticus' language and Dill's?
What does this tell us about the two characters?
How do you know? Your turn: With a partner, identify three examples of contractions used on pp. 102-103. Write each one down. Then, next to it, write how it would be written without the contraction. EXAMPLE: "I won 'em from him" = "I won them from him" From the Bible: one of the three captives who came out of the fiery furnace miraculously unharmed: Dan. 3:12-27 A mild soap Clothing; attire A particular district in a city A bad-smelling gum resin from plants used to treat disease or prevent illness A printing process Things preventing progress, especially on a trip (An impediment is something that gets in the way). An impedimenta is something specific like luggage, supplies, or equipment that an army would carry. A thin fabric used for clothing or curtains One of the most important books ever written on English law Drunk - slang term An assistant or secretary Vocabulary Vocabulary Vocabulary Vocabulary Motif A motif is a recurring idea or image in a piece of literature
In TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, motifs include the mockingbird, Boo Radley, and small-town life
Motifs are stated directly and often help reveal the themes in a text
Motifs are usually specific to that story or novel (they don't apply to other texts) Small-town Life Motifs We know that a motif in TKM is small-town life. In pairs, work together to identify examples of small-town life from Chps 15 & 16. Racism Theme The theme of racism emerges more clearly in chapters 15 & 16. Identify and write three examples of exact quotes from these chapters that demonstrate the theme of racism. placid linotype peculiarity antagonize acquiesce Even though he was loud and excited in public, Charles was a relatively placid man at home with his family. Newspapers were no longer printed on a linotype once computers became widely available in the 1960s and 1970s. Johnny's most noticeable peculiarity is that he prefers sleeping during the day and not at night. The younger brother constantly antagonized his older sibling until a fight eventually broke out. Even though he did not want to take a bath, Mario acquiesced without a fight because he saw that his mother was upset. Theme A theme is a message or a main idea that the reader can infer from a text
One theme in TKM is that you don't really know someone until you walk in their shoes
Themes are not stated directly, but are figured out by analysing motifs and other information in the text
Themes are universal (they apply to more than just the story or novel) skewed corroborating fluctuations corrugated traumas acrimonious pantomime contorted evoked pilgrimage articulate Small Group Discussion Who is on trial beginning in Chapter 17?

List three characteristics of each character (eg smart, funny, obtuse) Explain why you chose each word. Quick Write! In 2-3 sentences, explain who you believe is the better lawyer, Mr. Gilmer or Atticus. Be specific! Predicting the text Will Tom be found guilty or innocent?
Write your thoughts in 2-3 sentences. Be specific! acquainted unimpaired expunge candid discreet perpetrate pauper tacit droves vengeance I first became acquainted with Mr. Jones after I met him at a party. Because he had not ingested any drugs or alcohol, Shawn's decision making was unimpaired. The judge instructed the recorder to expunge the last statement from the record because it was out of line. While some athletes give lengthy interviews, many are not entirely candid with the journalist interviewing them. The late student tried to be discreet by slipping quietly into the classroom through the back door. A crime has been perpetrated against the group working for equal rights. minute While the dictator lived in wealth and luxury, most of the citizens were paupers who scraped to find meals each day. It is a tacit rule in society that you stand a few feet behind people while waiting to use the ATM. People came out in droves to Mt Barker Football Club's first match of the season, and the second should be quite similar. Harry Potter knew that he must have his vengeance with Voldemort since he killed Harry's parents. In an FBI investigation, every minute detail must be scrutinised in order to ensure that nothing is missed. Atticus' Closing Argument: Is it Persuasive? Reread pgs 223 - 227 and complete the chart below. Important Quote What it means in your own words 1 2 3 Write a response explaining Atticus' argument and whether or not it is persuasive. Your response should have an introductory thesis, and then two full paragraphs.
The thesis should say: "Atticus' main point is that _________ and it is/is not persuasive because _____. impassive cynical credibility acquittal vehement wrath reverence wary commence squalor linger preface Read and Respond Read Ch. 22 and respond to the following questions: 1. What is the significance of Alexandra calling
2. Why does Miss Maudie give Jem a piece of cake
from the big cake and not his own small one?
3. Jem says that when he gets older he will outlaw
Do you think this is a good idea?
Why or why not? Even after his dog died, the impassive man did not change his expression. After he was cheated on, the man became cynical toward a relationship of any kind. Once the student was caught skipping class and lied about it, his credibility was shot. Even though all evidence pointed to a guilty verdict, the defendant was granted an acquittal. Even though he was hurt, Tom G was vehement about staying in the game. After disobeying the Emperor, the pauper felt the wrath of the man in charge. The martial arts student had great reverence for his master, who taught him everything he knew. After seeing the snake on the plane, the woman was wary of ever flying again. After the national anthem, the game commenced. Because they were responsible for bathing themselves, the Ewell children lived in squalor. Even though he left the room, the dog passed gas and everyone could smell it for minutes because it lingered. The author prefaced his book with a story about what motivated him to write it.
