I can't write your essay for you but I can give you a few ideas to consider.

Thesis/intro- Who was Tom? A little background on setting and character.

What happened to him? found guilty and shot while trying to escape.

Three Main Points- trace Tom's journey. (state / explain / quote)

1 What actually happened. Tom passes by, Mayella invites him in......find a quote to back this up.

2. Mayella/Bob's version. Explain and provide quote.

3. Found guilty and aftermath. Explain and provide quote.


That's your outline. Hope it helps a little.
