Unreliable Narrator?
An unreliable narrator is a narrator that can't be trusted or has lost credibility.
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.
hookworms
A parasite that resides in the intestinal system. Symptoms include abdominal pain and weakness.
entailment
The act of paying something back or transferring something to another person

Slang for head lice

Then in the rest of your paragraph you should give examples that support whatever you said in the topic sentence.
PARAGRAPHS MUST BE AT LEAST 5 FULL SENTENCES TO RECEIVE CREDIT. YOU HAVE 7 MINUTES.
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 the Midwest 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 (a form of dialect) 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.

Read the following excerpt and write down all of the contractions. Then, rewrite them as formal language (ex. 'em=them).
"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)
Review Chapter 14
In pairs, discuss Scout's question and Dill's response at the end of chapter 14:
"Why do you reckon Boo Radley's never run off?"
Dill sighed a long sigh and turned away from me.
