Storyboard Text

  • Atticus Teaches Scout How to Compromise
  • I don't want to go back to school. The teachers and kids are so mean.
  • Let's make a compromise, if you go back I'll keep reading every night like I have been.
  • Scout Learns to Make Friends
  • You're the best lady I know Miss Maudie, I don't think you should go to hell.
  • Foot-Washing Baptists are mean, they think me and my flowers should rot in hell.
  • Why does Cal like Jem so much better than me?!
  • Scout Learns to Understand
  • Have you ever considered that Jem does less bad things.
  • While complaining, Scout protests that she does not want to go back to school. Atticus responds with an idea. "If you'll concede the necessity of going to school, we'll go on reading every night just as we always have. Is it a bargain?" (Cline 41). Scout listens and they complete this compromise. Scout is developing an understanding of listening and agreeing with adults. Instead of being stubborn and hard to work with, She is instead being understanding and attentive.
  • Scout Acts Up Against Cecil.
  • Scout was talking with Miss Maudie, "She was our friend... 'That ain't right, Miss Maudie. You're the best lady I know.'" (Cline 59). Scout learned to make friends with people other than Jem. This is new to Scout and it is a development that will help her in the coming years. This is also an improvement from the beginning of the book where she befriended Dill because of Jem who struck up a conversation with him.
  • Atticus Tells Scout He doesn't need her to defend him.
  • Some people may be talking dirty about me, just ignore them and keep you fists down.
  • Scout is complaining about how Cal was treating her, "'She likes Jem better'n she likes me'... 'Have you ever considered that Jem doesn't worry her half as much.'" (Cline 33). After Cal gets mad a Scout for being rude to Walter, Scout complains to Atticus about her. Atticus simply puts Scout in the perspective of Cal and this opens Scouts eyes. This shows that Scout is beginning to retain information from adults such as Atticus and understand others perspectives.
  • Scout Walks Away From the Fight WIth Cecil.
  • "Atticus had promised me he would wear me out if he ever heard of me fighting any more... Cecil Jacobs made me forget. He had announced in the schoolyard the day before that Scout Finch's daddy defended niggers" (Cline 99). Scout has been known to be very Pugnacious and difficult to work with. Scout has a difficult time listening to Atticus when he asks her to stop fighting. Scout feels compelled to defend him by any means necessary, even if the consequences could result in punishment.
  • Scout Finches dad defends niggers.
  • Atticus speaks to Scout about her experience at school, "You might hear some ugly talk about it at school, but do one thing for me if you will: you just hold your head high and keep those fists down" (Cline 101). This is excellent work by Atticus, helping Scout understand that words said at school can be rude, but they are not harmful. This also is one place where Scout is listening to Atticus and retaining information that will help her, instead of going back to school to get in a fight.
  • I understand.
  • "With this in mind, I faced Cecil Jacobs in the schoolyard next day... I drew a bead on him, remembered what Atticus had said, then dropped my fists and walked away..." (Cline 102). As scout thinks about approaching Cecil the next day she remembers what Atticus said about not fighting and just letting it play out. This also helps Scout stay calm as she walks away with Cecil and the other boys calling her a coward. This shows that Scout is listening and retaining the information that Atticus is saying. This also shows that Scout is agreeing with Atticus and staying on his side of the fight.
  • Hmf
  • Haha, you're a coward.
