Tuesday, Plans of Action

Period 2: English
Short Quiz (Complete paper quiz, correct first 3 pages together. Hand in.)
To Kill a Mockingbird review.
Chapter 10
Atticus is older than many fathers.
-Scout tests her respect for Atticus (‘He doesn’t do anything’.)
Tom Johnson is found rabid in the streets.
One shot Atticus kills him and saves the neighbourhood!
(He earns Scouts respect!)
Scout wants to shout it from the rooftops. Jem tells her not to because Atticus is a gentlemen and if he wanted to tell people he would. Jem states ‘He wants to  be a gentlemen like Atticus.’
The kids respect their father all the more once again.
Life is becoming increasingly more difficult for Scout.
Chapter 11
Who is Mrs. Dubose? (Remember her from the video?)
She is the mean, cantankerous woman who yells at the children.
Atticus says to be nice to her and models this through a pleasant conversation with her.
One day she crosses the line by comparing Atticus in a negative way to African American people.
She is clearly racist.
Jem loses her temper and crushes her camilia flowers.
Jem as punishment is forced to read with her. Scout goes with him.
Mrs. Dubose dies (she was addicted to morphine)
She leaves Jem a box with a white camilia.
Atticus again embodies moral values.
He stands for: justice, restraint, composure, honesty, equality and loyalty.
He stands up again injustices against innocents (like killing a mockingbird).
Chapter 12
Jem turns 12.
He begins to become more independent and wants to spend less time with Scout.
Scout looks forward to seeing Dill.
Dill does not come that summer.
Atticues begins to get very busy with work and begins to travel a lot.
Scout again is sad.
Calpurnia takes the kids to First Purchase (African American church).
Some welcome them.
Some do not.
Collection is taken up for Helen.
We learn it is Bob Ewell accusing Tom Robinson of raping a young woman.

Ohhhh as the plot thickens.
