To Kill a Mockingbird

How, specifically does a dynamic character differ from a static character?

This is a Homework Question for TKAM but I need quotes to back it up! I just don't know any examples.

Obviously the question and the quotes you would use depend on how far you have read in the novel.  A static character is one who does not change throughout a work of literature.  A dynamic character is one who changes throughout the work of literature.  Probably the best dynamic character in this novel is Scout, who changes throughout the novel as she sees the bravery of her father as he defends Tom and the obvious static characteristics of the most prejudiced characters.  Even Boo Radley changes somewhat as he comes out of his shell a bit throughout the novel.
