Transcript of To Kill a Mocking Bird

Scout is an aggressive ,tomboy that loves to fight, has an amount of curiosity, and is protective for the ones she cares for. Scout is a
dynamic character
because throughout the story she changes in many different ways.


Scout
Fiction Vocab. Words
In the story, Scout has different
points of view
in situations. For example
(Lee 113) scout says,"Well, in the first place you never stopped to gimme a chance to tell you my side of it-you just lit right into me."
This shows that Scout has a different perspective than Uncle Jack and expresses her point of view.
More Fiction Vocab Words!

To Kill a Mocking Bird
Aurther Radley

Aurther is nice and creepy at the same time. In the Book it says
"Boo was about six-and-a-half feet tall, judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch ." ( Lee 16)
That shows that people thought that he was scary but didn't get the chance to see his caring and nice side.
Atticus
The Way Scout Changes
Atticus is the father of Scout and Jem. He is a well rounded man and is very educated. He also knows how to deal with situations calmly and is a very good example to his children. Atticus is a
static character
because throughout the story his personality does not change.
Begging of Scout
Scout starts off as a major tomboy that likes to fight and use curse words. Some examples are
"But at supper that evening when I asked him to pass the damn ham, please, Uncle Jack pointed at me."(Lee 105) "What are you doing in those overalls! You should be in a dress young lady."(Lee 135)
Next change for Scout
She goes through many things but she also learns to be more nice and considerate of others.
Another change
Scout learns about racism and begins to want to learn more about the whole thing. She also agrees with Atticus about taking Robinson's side because she's starting to realize that he is a human like everyone else.
The NEW Scout
Scout ends up being the new and improved girl that she is meant to be at the end of the book. She finally learns to act like a lady and realizes the suffers of African-Americans.
The
setting
in the story is in a small town called Maycomb County. Scout and her family live in a neighborhood where everybody knows everybody and everybody knows them.
The

mood

in the story changes every time. Like when Scout is mad at Jem, she's okay a few minutes later or when Scout gets happy that Dill sends her letters, but then she's sad because she misses him.
Harper Lee creates Atticus's

tone

to always being calm, friendly, and polite, For example

Lee 96 says," Whoa, son," so gently that i was greatly heartened."

Atticus's tone throughout the story never really changed. He was always that friendly guy across the street.
There was a lot of

conflict

during Tom Robinson's case. Atticus had conflict with most Maycomb County folks because he was defending a black man. But the Ewelles are the ones that had the most hate towards Atticus.
Even More Vocab Words!
Themes
Atticus, Scout, Jem all
symbolize
different things according to their personalities. Atticus symbolizes peace, Scout symbolizes fighting, and Jem symbolizes maturity and independance.
During Tom Robinson's case there was a huge
climax
because after Tom Robinson was sent to prison, Atticus said he was going to get him out. People were expecting that as well, but then he was killed trying to escape.
The
theme
in the story is there may be bad situation, but good things come along eventually. This theme fits the book because Scout and her family went through a lot of trouble, but then their troubles were repaid with food, respect, and a rescue.
Another theme is you can learn a lot from a child. Uncle Jack, and Atticus spoke to each other in the middle of the book. Uncle Jack said,
" I know. Your daughter gave me my first lessons this afternoon. She said I didn't understand children much and told me why."(Lee 115)
Summary
To Kill a Mocking Bird was based on the family of Jean Lous Finch or as they call her, Scout. They were a family that lived in a small town called Maycomb County. They came along a house that gave them the creeps because of a man named Boo Radley. Scout and her brother, Jem, learned about the suffers of African- Americans in this book. They matured along the way and realized the differences in people and the struggles of the innocent.
