To Kill a Mockingbird

Write This Theme In Your Own Words

In Chapter 10, Miss Maudie says, "Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don't eat up people's gardens, don't nest in corncribs, they don't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird." This quotation explains an important theme of this novel. Write this theme in your own words. Do not refer to mockingbirds because the statement above is just a metaphor for humans.

That will take some thinking. Consider the something like,

"There are some people in this world who don't have a mean bone their body; they just want to love and help other people. Because these people are so kind, they are also vulnerable to others; it would be a sin to take advantage of them."

I don't even think that's very good but it's like 11:00 pm. Try to think along those lines and you might be surprised with what you come up with!
