Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Rising Action
  • Climax
  • Jem, Scout, Atticus, and Cal are standing in front of their house in Maycomb, Alabama. Scout and Jem's mom had died, so Atticus, their father hired Cal to be their cook. One day, they meet Dill who they spend every day of summer with.
  • Falling Action
  • There is a lot of tension growing in the town because Atticus agrees to defend a colored man. Children at school and other adults begin harassing the Finch children (and Atticus) because of this.
  • Falling Action
  • During the trial, Mayella and Mr. Ewell tell their side of the story, saying Tom (Atticus' client) raped Mayella. Tom's story was very different, saying Mayella kissed him. Despite the obvious evidence, Tom was charged guilty.
  • Resolution
  • On Halloween night, Jem and Scout are walking home when they get attacked by Mr. Ewell. He knocks Jem unconscious and breaks his elbow. Scout was dressed in a costume that saved her of major injuries, but also kept her from being able to see. Suddenly, she hears the attacking stop and sees a man carrying her brother home. Boo Radley saved the children and killed Bob by stabbing him with a kitchen knife.
  • In the last few chapters of the book, Scout talks to Boo for the first time. Boo asks Scout to walk him home after they talk with the police about Bob's murder. When Scout gets on the porch, she turns round and envisions the past 2 years of her life.
  • Although the story ends, there is no resolution. Racism is still an issue throughout Maycomb even after the trial. Atticus, Jem and Scout were not racist but there were many others who still discriminated colored people.
