Life's Little Instruction BookTKAM

Atticus Atticus Finch is a lawyer and resident of the fictional Maycomb County, and the father of Jeremy "Jem" Finch and Jean Louise "Scout" Finch. Atticus is a character that showcases courage by defending a black man. Where in the south, that is unheard of. The reason why we chose these quotes, is becasuse they exemplify Atticus' wisdom throughout the novel.

Jem Jeremy Atticus 'Jem' Finch is the brother of Scout, and is four years older than her. Jem is the best friend of Dill and the son of Atticus Finch. Jem matures a lot throughout the course of the novel and is much more affected by events throughout the novel. They don't affect Scout as much, because she doesn't understand them.

Morals In this quote, Miss Maudie is teaching Scout how it is a sin to kill a mockingbird, but in reality she is comparing a mockingbird to characters such Boo and Tom. Saying that both of these character have only done good, but are misunderstood.

Ms. Maudie Miss Maudie lives across the street from the Finch's.She was about the same age as Atticus' brother, Uncle Jack Finch. They had grown up together at Finch's Landing. She becomes very close to Scout when Jem begins to grow and wants to become more distant.

Aunt Alexandra She is Atticus' and Jack's sister, married to James "Uncle Jimmy" Hancock. She disapproves of Scout being a tomboy and wants to make Scout into a more lady figure. This causes many conflicts throughout the novel. Later on Scout comes to realize how much she cares for Atticus, though she and Scout will probably never really get along.

Coping During this quote Aunt Alexandra explains to Atticus and the children, that even though it is sad that Tom Robinson died, the people of Maycomb are accountable. To the rest of town, Tom was just another negro, that died.

Understanding During this quote, Jem is explaining to Scout why Boo has stayed in his house that long. He realizes why, because of all of the troubles that happen outside, Boo trys to isolate himself to stay away from Maycomb.

Social Inequality In this quote, while Jem is growing up, he realizes the true extent to how much black people are segragated. He then teaches his findings to Scout so she can know how unequal Maycomb is due to race.

Social Inequality During this quote, Miss Maudie is explaining how racism affects a lot of things, espcially in Maycomb. For example in the Tom Robinson case, Tom was innocent, but was found guilty just because he was black.

Courage In this quote, Atticus is teaching Jem what real courage is. Mrs. Dubose showed courage in the novel, and Atticus used her, to show Jem that courage is not a "man with gun in his hand," meaning that bravery isn't being tough, it is when despite the fact of putting something at risk, you have the ability to see your actions through no matter what, because it is the right thing to do.

Empathy and Cooperating During this quote, Atticus is using an opportunity to show Scout to see things from somebody elses perspective. This shows her that she needs to respect others who aren't like her.

Understanding In this quote, Aunt Alexandra is explaining to Scout that some things are out of her control, and that nobody is perfect. Walter Cunningham is below the Finches in the Maycomb caste system and Aunt Alexandra explains how some people are in a lower social class.
