Storyboard Text

  • Today I will compare the views of my aunt and myself about folks.
  • Hi! I'm Jean Louise Finch, or Scout, and this is my brother Jem.
  • This is Aunt Alexandra. She thinks fine folks are those that have a nice background.
  • She thinks that those who have owned a piece of property for a very long time or have a good family history are fine folks.
  • For example, my father, Atticus Finch is one of these folks because he defended Tom Robinson when no one else would, simply because Tom was a black person. He is what I would call a fine folk.
  • However, I believe that folks are defined by their actions. There are just some folks that do more influential things than others.
  • These are the Cunninghams. They are regular folks just like me and Jem.
  • However, they have one rule: they will not take any money that they can not give back. This was demonstrated once by Walter in class when Miss Caroline, our teacher, tried to lend Walter a quarter for lunch.  He refused, since his family doesn't even have a quarter to pay her back.
  • Aunt Alexandra does not approve of me playing with Walter because she thinks the Cunninghams are "trash," but to me they're nice folks.
  •  Oh, no! It's Mr.Ewell! He's the one who accused Tom Robinson of raping Mayella Ewell!  The evidence that Atticus presented in court was  ignored by the all- white jury, indicating much of the final results were biased. Also, a few days after the trial, Mr.Ewell even tried to kill us! He is not a fine folk, but a poor folk.
  • Quick! Let's go home, Jem!
  • Good night, Scout!
  • Back home again! I hope that my definition of different types of folks were clear enough! Good night Jem!
