Storyboard Text

  • Remember children, it's a sin to kill a mockingbird
  • When Scout and Jem are given a gun as a present from Uncle Jack, Atticus makes the rules very clear: they are allowed to shoot all the bluejays they want, but never a mockingbird. This is because mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy, so it is not right to kill them.
  • When Tom Robinson is accused of raping Mayella Ewell, he can be compared to a mockingbird. Solely due to the colour of his skin he is convicted of committing a crime, when he is truly innocent. Like a mockingbird, he is powerless and his word doesn't stand a chance against the Ewells.
  • From Tom Robinson's trial Scout learns that not everyone in Maycomb has good morals like her family. She also learns the importance of standing up for "mockingbirds" and giving them a voice in the face of adversity.
