I'll post some more questions for you guys. Hope to see some thoughts on them while I am gone!
CHAPTER 10: In this chapter Atticus tells his children that “it's a sin to kill a mockingbird”. What reason does he give for saying this?
CHAPTER 11-17 (Spring Break Goal)
2. What does Mrs. Dubose say about the children's mother? How does Jem feel about this?
3. Atticus says that Mrs. Dubose is a model of real courage rather than “a man with a gun in his hand”. What does he mean? Do you think he is right?
4. Explain why Calpurnia speaks differently in the Finch household, and among her neighbors at church.
5. Alexandra thinks Scout is “dull” (not clever). Why does she think this, and is she right? Are all adults good at knowing how clever young people are?
6. Why is Scout pleased when Jem fights her back in Chapter 14? Why is she less pleased when he tells Atticus about Dill?
7. What do we learn from Dill's account of his running away?
8. What persuades the lynching-party to give up their attempt on Tom's life?
9. What “subtle change” does Scout notice in her father in Chapter 16?
10. How does Reverend Sykes help the children see and hear the trial? Is he right to do?
11. What do we learn-- directily and indirectly-- about the home life of the Ewell family in Chapter 17?
12. Why does Atticus ask Bob Ewell to write out his name? What does the jury see when he does this?
Let's hear some thoughts on this book, people!
