This storyboard does not have a description.
The Mockingbird is a motif because it appears multiple times throughout the book displaying its symbol of innocence. For example, when Boo killed the man, Mr. Tate said that the man (Bob Ewell) fell on his knife. Later on, Scout said that if they actually blamed Boo (Arthur Radley) it would be like killing a mockingbird. This is because Boo has done nothing wrong but save the kids and if he was taken to jail the spotlight would have been on on him and that's something he tried to stay out of.
Mayella's flowers are a symbol. They are ironic because she grows them in the dump. The flowers look as though they are cared for tenderly and this shows that perhaps Mayella wasn't like the other Ewell's. It seems like even though she lived in an awful place, she tried to make her surrondings better. She did this by taking care of the flowers.
Throughout the beginning of the book, Boo Radley is a child superstition. Nobody really knows if he's inside the house and all the children believe bad things about him. As they grow up, Scout realizes that Boo is actually a real person and that he is innocent. At the end of the book, Boo saves Jem and Scout. Scout realizes that all the rumors about Boo were not true. Boo becomes a "mockingbird". He was a symbol of the good within people.
