I think Atticus teaches Scout to be more than a nice or fair person. He teaches her to see beyond first impressions and identify with people on a personal level. Scout does this with Miss. Dubose and finally with Boo Radley. Scout is finally able to look beyond the childish superstitions to see the human being behind Boo, "Atticus was right. One time he said you never really know a man until you stand in his shoes and walk around in them. Just standing on the Radley porch was enough." These experience really make up Scout's identity as a mature girl.
