Scout by Mind Map: Scout

1. Looks Like

1.1. Scout is the main character and narrator of the Novel “To Kill a Mockingbird” and therefore does not have a physical description. However we can tell that she is bigger than other kids of her age because she has hurts them physically. Scout is also is larger then most boys. “I was rubbing his nose in the dirt Jem came by and told me to stop” P.24 Scout is physically stronger then most boys and therefore must be bigger. Scout wears pants and is appears to be a Tomboy. “Ladies in bunches always filled me with vague apprehension and a firm desire to be elsewhere” P. 246 Clearly Scout does not like Lady things and is a is a Tomboy.

2. Acts like

2.1. Childish “I was rubbing his nose in the dirt Jem came by and told me to stop” P.24 Clearly Scout is being childish if she is hurting other children. Plus her age also confirms that she is a child and therefore is childish, Tomboy “Ladies in bunches always filled me with vague apprehension and a firm desire to be elsewhere” P. 246 Scout is the Novel of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird” very much acts like a Tomboy. This is confirmed when she does wants to be “elsewhere” when “Ladies” are around. Playful “Catching Walter Cunning Ham in the school yard gave me some pleasure” P.24 Scout is also playful in the novel of “To Kill a Mockingbird”. This can be seen by her chasing children in the school yard.

3. Motivated By

3.1. Compassion “'Run, Scout Run! Run!’ Jem screamed.” P. 285 This quote shows the compassion between Scout and Jem when they are being attacked by Bob Ewell. This ultimately leads to scout and Jem not being killed. Playful “Catching Walter Cunning Ham in the school yard gave me some pleasure” P.24 Scout is a playful character and is motivated by it because of her Tomboy personally, this quote shows her playfulness. Respect “‘If you can learn a simple trick, Scout, You’ll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks’” P.31 This is clearly demonstrated respect and this teaching scout listens to, she takes with her throughout the rest of the Novel.

4. Beliefs and Values

4.1. Knowledge “but Atticus knew the ways of country people far better than I” P. 289 Scout has a belief that knowledge is great and this can be seen. Scout wants to know more about the town. However she realises that Atticus has greater knowledge witch makes him superior. Fight them “I was rubbing his nose in the dirt Jem came by and told me to stop” P.24 Scout has a belief that fighting people is the best way to solve problems this can be seen by the quote. She thinks this because she is stronger than most kids her age. Curiosity “Dill asked if I’d like to have a poke at Boo Radley” P.162 Scout caries the value of Curiosity, this is because of her young age. Dill, Jem, and Scout enjoy looking at Boo Radley’s house, which is old and run down. Safety “Jem and I confined our activities to the southern neighbourhood” P. 108 Jem and Scout keep safe by playing in certain areas and staying in certain areas of the town. This value of safety helps them throughout the novel.

5. How Others See Him or Her

5.1. Tomboy “I was rubbing his nose in the dirt Jem came by and told me to stop” P.24 Children see Scout as a tomboy because of her bullying of other children. Fortunate “‘Jean Louise’ she said ‘you are a fortunate girl” P.251 Scout is seen as fortunate because of her skin colour and wealthy stasis. Her wealthy stats is comes from her father who is a criminal lawyer. Antagonising “‘Now I mean it, Scout, you antagonise Aunty’” P. 150 Scout can be seen as annoying and antagonising because of her young age and tomboy nature, this is demonstrated above.

6. Textual Issues or Concerns Linked to this character

6.1. Concern for Jem “‘Jem, are you afraid’? Scout has a lot of concern for scout because he is part of her family. She makes sure that Jem is not afraid and therefore cares and has a concern. Concern for Dill “he ran and kissed me swiftly” P.60 Scout has a concern for Dill because they love each other and this is demonstrated. Concern for Atticus "He would be there all night” P.307 Scout and Atticus both have concern for each other because they are family. Atticus is watching Scout all night and Scout is with him. Clearly this event demonstrates concern.
