To Kill a Mockingbird



So I am in 10th grade english. We just started reading this book. And I am totally confused and totally not in the zone.

We have to do questions after we read a chapter. And we're doing chapters on chapter 1.

So heres questions I need help on.

5. Why is Maycomb a comfortable place for Atticus?

7. Why do the boys stay within their "summer boundaries"?

8. Why does Jem being to respect Dill?

9. explain this line:

"Thus we came to know Dill as a picket Merlin, whose head teemed with eccentric plans, strange longings, and quaint fancies."

10. Why is Dill fascinated with the Radley Place?

11. How does the town feel about the Boo Radleys?

16. What reaction comes from inside the house?

I'll have more as we read more in the book.

Please and thanks you's.

and if you'd like to write me personally then get at my myspace.

5. Atticus is related to many residents of Maycomb.

7. They are obedient. Also they are content with the entertainment available to them.

9. Dill is a kid with a big imagination.

10. The Radley place is mysterious and "out of bounds." Dill can't resist a mystery.

11. The Radleys are "different," and so the people are suspicious of them.

16. When Jem runs up to touch the house, a shutter flicks. When Scout falls out of the tire at the front step, she hears someone laughing.

If you really want the answers . . . read the book. Twice if necessary.

thanks for your help on this one
