Go back to Chapter 15 on page 76. Look for the
passage that begins: “All right, Mr. Finch, get ’em
outa here . . . . ”
The passage then ends with: “Doors slammed,
engines coughed, and they were gone.”
You should be looking for all of the details that
concern how Scout reacts to the mob, then look for
all of the details of how Mr. Cunningham behaves
and what makes him and his men leave.

the following questions. Remember to include
evidence from the text and to explain and elaborate
on your response. Lastly, check your writing:
1. In writing, create a step by step recording of Scout’
s efforts to make a connection with Mr. Cunningham.

explain his eventual decision to leave the jail and
take the rest of the men with him?
3. What does Harper Lee show us with the incident at
the jailhouse, and how does she suggest that mob
mentality can be defeated?

2. Why does Raymond think that children like Scout
and Dill can understand his secret better than adults?

Prompt #19 Other People's Perspectives
Choose ONLY one question from below to discuss:
Atticus repeatedly reminds his children to consider
other people’s perspectives. In Chapter 16, referring
to the night in front of the jail house, he tells his
children that they “made Walter Cunningham stand in
my shoes for a minute. That was enough.” Is Atticus
right? Is it “enough” to consider things from the
perspective of others? Will that always connect us in
moments of conﬂict? Was this conﬂict solved, or was
it just deferred? Support your answer with evidence
from the text.
What factors influence our moral growth? What kinds
of experiences help us learn how to judge right from
wrong? You may use the novel as a basis for your

(CRRJ), "The Trouble I've Seen" follows the

CRRJ takes on cases that both horrify us and beg us
