3: "Maycomb, some twenty miles east of Finch's landing, was the country seat of Maycomb County." (Lee 5). Maycomb is a quiet, small town where everyone knows everyone and are connected either by family or marriage. | People moved slower then. They ambled across the square, shuffled in and out of the stars around it, took their time about everything. (Lee 6). The people in Maycomb live a quiet life where everyone in town simply knows whats going on.

8: Meet the characters
9: Scout is the cheery little girl who has a mean tomboy streak. Scout is a dynamic character because of her change through the years and all the situations her and all she knows went through.. | Jean Louise Finch (Scout ) | Jeremy Finch (Jem) | Jem is a very intelligent boy who puts his family above all else. Jem is a dynamic character because how he learns and changes over the coarse of the book but mainly through the Robinson case.
10: Calpurnia is the hard working caretaker of the family. She watches out for Scout and Jem when Atticus is away. Calpurnia would be described as a Static character because the book only gives us a brief on her life | Atticus Finch | Atticus is the head of the house and is the father of Scout and Jem. He is a defense lawyer who protects Tom Robinson. Atticus would be described as a Dynamic character because it shows a change in him over time. | Calpurnia
11: Tom Robinson is the man accused of beating and rapping Mayella Yule. But in reality he is a nice, hardworking man who felt sorry for Mayella and took care of her. Tom Robinson is considered a dynamic character because we discovered much about his life. | Tom Robinson
12: Boo Radley is the mystery that goes around Maycomb. Whether he is a killer or simply is buried away in his own insanity. But in reality he is as human as the rest of them. | He is to blame for all that happens in Maycomb...
14: What does it symbolize? | The mocking bird symbolizes the innocence. | Mockingbird
15: Tom is a mockingbird because he is a innocent man who was blamed for a crime he didn't commit due to someone else's greed. | Scout is a mockingbird because she is but a child living in a adult world. She is naive to the cruelty around her and does not understand what is really going on around her. | Boo could be considered a mockingbird because he has been locked up in his home for many years. He knows not of what goes on outside his home.
17: Death of innocence | All Men Should Be Equal | "Toms dead." Tom was a innocent man who was shot 17 times. Many innocent people are framed and find running a way out. | Mystery Happenings | "Tom Robinson's a colored man, Jem. No jury in this part of the world's going to say "We Think your guilty, but not very", on a charge like that." Because Tom is black, he had less of a chance. Because of someones skin color, people assume the same racist things. | "Boo Radley was the cause of every bad happening in Maycomb." Boo Radley was the reason for every bad thing that happened in Maycomb. When someone doesn't understand something, people tend to find someone of something to blame.
18: My Thoughts
19: My thoughts on this book is that of a very detailed and true story. But the end of the book was rather disappointing. I kinda wanted to know what happened a.t the end. What happened with each of their lives
