Storyboard Text

  • Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy.
  • They don't eat up gardens, don't nest in corncribs they don't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us.
  • That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.
  • In this part of the book Jem and Scout get airguns for Christmas. Atticus tells them that it is a sin to kill a mockingbird and Ms. Maudie Atkinson expands on that.
  • To my way of thinkin' Mr. Finch, taking the one man who's done you and this town a great service,
  • What Ms. Maudie says demonstrates to Scout and Jem that because mockingbirds do nothing but good that it is evil to kill them.
  • an' draggin' him and his shy ways into the limelight - to me, that's a sin.
  • Although it may not be apparent to Jem and Scout at first, later on in the book during the next sequence Scout realizes the meaning of Miss Maudies words.
  • It's a sin and I'm not about to have it on my head.
  • This part of the book takes place immediately after Mr. Ewell attacks Jem and Scout. Boo Radley ends up saving the two but killing Mr. Ewell in the process.
  • Sheriff Heck Tate gives a message with the same meaning as that of Miss Maudies. The difference is that this is dealing with a person and not just birds.
  • After Sheriff Heck says his two cents and his good nights, Scout realizes the meaning of Miss Maudies and Mr. Tates words and draws a comparison between the two stating that "Well, it'd sort of be like shootin' a mockingbird, wouldn't it?"
