Day #29; Chap 3 TKAM; Wrap up Human Rights; Media Perspectives

To Kill a Mockingbird

Lets talk about Chapter 3…
Chapter 1
Chapter 2-3

Scout’s first day of school and her experiences are humiliating because of Miss Caroline’s narrow mindedness.  Scout initially rebels against this because she is too innocent to recognize that you have to play the system.  This demonstrates how Scout is still naive and innocent to the realities of the world around her.  To help Scout begin to understand the harsh differences in the world, Atticus tells her:
“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view–until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it” (pg. 30).
*Why is this quote significant? In essence, how does it help Scout begin to interpret her community and the world?
