  • INTRODUCTION / EXPOSITION
  • POLICE
  • RISING ACTION
  • RISING ACTION (CONT.)
  • Characters are introduced: Atticus- the Father, Jem Finch, Boo Radley, Walter Cunningham, Scout, Tom Robinson. Set in Alabama during late 1920-1930s during the time of poverty and racism. Boo’s house was looked upon as a scary place. When the children walked past his house they were told to stand back. It was implied that there was a separation between the blacks and the whites (segregation).
  • CLIMAX
  • The jury finds Tom Robinson: Guilty.
  • Scout and Jem are curious about Radley’s place. Scout and Jem discover things inside the tree outside Boo's house, more interactions with Boo: important example is when the children go to his place -> Jem's pants get stuck while trying to hurriedly get out of the place, he leaves his pants, and when he returns to retrieve his pants, he finds them stitched up and folded up on the gate.
  • FALLING ACTION
  • Atticus defends Tom Robinson, a black man, who has been accused by Mayella Ewell of raping her. As Atticus, Jem and Scout’s father, is representing a black man, the children become known and are constantly confronted by criticism of others about their father -> Scout has a fight with a boy at school. When Atticus questions Mayella, it becomes apparent that she is lying and her testimony is clearly questionable. Jem and Scout deepen their understanding on prejudice
  • RESOLUTION / CONCLUSION
  • The moment in which the jury finds Tom Robinson guilty as it presents a time of panic and realism as the case is closed. The verdict forces Scout and Jem to confront the fact that the morals and values Atticus has taught them throughout their lives will not always reside well with the cruel harsh realities of life.
  • Bob Ewell threatens Atticus and Tom's wife Helen. Tom Robinson is shot dead, story of his death is fabricated. Jem and Scout are attacked by Bob Ewell.
  • Court case was concluded resulting to Tom Robinson’s guilty charge. He was then sent to a further prison where Robinson sought for freedom and unfortunately ran to his own death being shot dead by a police officer. Arthur Radley was finally discovered to be portrayed as a kind and loving character. He saved Jem and Scout from the attack, and murders Bob Ewell while doing so. His sudden actions, different from how he was perceived, reflected onto both Scout and Jem teaching them life lessons that many seem to unfortunately lack. A common phrase to relate, ‘don't judge a book by its cover’. The issue of racism was brought forward.
