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,

but
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.

Warm Up
With a partner, answer the following questions about chapters 4 & 5. Write your answers on your own warm-up paper.
1. What are 3 major events that happened in chapters 4 &5?
2. Who is Maudie Atkinson? What did she have to say about Arthur (Boo) Radley? Why might she be an important person to Jem and Scout?
3. Are your feelings and thoughts towards Boo changing? If so, why? If not, why not?
Fun with Compound Sentences
A simple sentence, also called an independent clause, expresses a complete thought. Here are some examples:

1. Leticia and Elizabeth love coming to English class. Leticia and Elizabeth come to class on time every day.
2. Roselia and Dimas think that To Kill a Mockingbird is the greatest book of all time. They have already read most of the book.
3. Scout and Jem are scared of Boo Radley. Scout and Jem are curious about what Boo is really like.
What words would we need to use to combine each set of sentences above?
FANBOYS
For
And
Nor
But
Or
Yet
So
Compound Sentences in TKAM
1. "His name's Arthur, and he's alive"
2. "Miss Maudie's stopped rocking, and her voice hardened."
3. "We saw Uncle Jack every Christmas, and every Christmas he would yell across the street for Miss Maudie to come marry him."
Can you identify the independent clauses and the connecting words in each sentence?
Questions?
And now, a little lesson from our friends Justin Beiber and Luda.
Finish reading through chapter 8 for homework. Then respond: If your house was on fire, what ONE object would you save? Write a paragraph of AT LEAST 5 sentences explaining your thoughts.

Have you ever been discriminated against? If so, when, where, and how were you discriminated?

If you believe that you have never been the victim of discrimination, write about what you would do if you ever had to talk with someone who did not like you because of your race, religion, ethnicity, or skin color.
Only complete paragraphs will get full points.

MINI-LESSON: Contractions
DIALECT
Dialect is a specific form of language that is peculiar to a specific region or group of people. 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 Maryland and the United States.
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.
Let's explore this.
"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. 74-75. 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"
Classwork
As we read chapter 12 together, identify
AT LEAST 5
examples of
contractions
in the text related to the characters'
dialect
. Only identify and write them down; you don't have to do anything else right now.

"The thing is, what I'm tryin' to say is -- they do get on a lot better without me. I can't help them any. They ain't mean. They buy me everything I want, but it's 'now-you've-got-it-go-play-with-it. You've got a roomful of things. I-got-you-that-book-so-go-read-it.' " (-Dill, p. 191)
