why do we read this book
Why do we read this book?
  • Understand and be aware of certain ideologies that persisted and still exist in society (racism, sexism, classism, etc)
  • Because it is a timeless story with lessons about justice, challenges, prejudices, courage (physical and moral), identity, family, and growing up emotionally, intellectually and physically…Which of these don’t relate to you?
  • Make discoveries about ourselves and our world, as with most great stories
presenting your narrator scout finch
Presenting your narrator: Scout Finch
  • Characterization: we learn about characters by being told about them, by seeing them in action and/or through internal viewings
  • Is Scout a boy or girl? Black or white? How do you know?
slide19

Scout is our narrator and is between the ages of 6-9 when the story takes place. We see her view of the world when she was this age, but she tells the story in 2 ways: what she believes she saw, heard, felt and thought and her re-evaluation of the events.

Examples of times you witnessed something and only understood it later, looking back.
