& Roshni Narine To Kill A Mockingbird What is his role? Theme: The value of moral education Uncle Jack Throughout the text, Atticus enforces respect and education in general, however Jack was the 'second' voice who emphasized this point and got the message through to Scout, and the readers. Proof Explanation Theme: True Courage Uncle Jack gave Jem and Scout fake courage, by giving them their guns for Christmas.

Later on this proved to help Jem and Scout understand what true courage really is. Proof After Jem and Scout think they understand that courage is being able to shoot a gun, Atticus explains what true courage is:

“ ‘…I wanted you to see something about her – I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do. …’ ” – Page 112

Atticus even displays true courage through taking on the job of defending Tom Robinson. Explanation Uncle Jack unraveled the theme of real courage by giving Jem and Scout their guns, which helped them to understand Atticus's description with a new light and appreciation.

Atticus's Description: Real courage is standing up against society for what you believe in, even if it means changing the present and future family’s reputation. THAT Thanks for watching is... A Bit About Jack... Full Name: John Hale Finch

For example, as shown in our proof, Uncle Jack made Scout refrain from using mildly insulting language, and later on, scolded her for allegedly using such language against her cousin.

By hearing the same message coming from different people, the readers can get the idea that moral education and respect is important to everyone. Uncle Jack warned Scout about her language, because it could land her into trouble.

“ ‘ You like words like damn and hell now, don’t you?’
I said I reckon so.
‘Well I don’t,’ said Uncle Jack, ‘not unless there’s extreme provocation connected with ‘em. I’ll be here a week, and I don’t want to hear any words like that while I’m here. Scout, you’ll get in trouble if you go around saying things like that. You want to grow up to be a lady, don’t you? ’ ” – Page 79 start Untied shoelaces lead to falling without correction.

Uncle Jack is like the untied shoelace because, he hints at trouble ahead, such as the consequences for speaking disrespectfully.
