Scout by Mind Map: Scout

1. Looks Like

1.1. Aunt Alexandra was fanatical on the subject of my attire. I could not possible hope to be a lady if I wore breeches. 81

1.1.1. Scout never used her real name and always dressed as a tom boy. Unlike other girls she never really cared all that much about her appearance.

1.1.1.1. "“I was not so sure, but Jem told me I was being a girl, that girls always imagined things, that’s why other people hated them so, and if I started behaving like one I could just go off and find some to play with.”

2. Acts Like

2.1. Tom Boy

2.1.1. "Aunt Alexandra was fanatical on the subject of my attire. I could not possibly hope to be a lady if I wore breeches; when I said I could do nothing in a dress, she said I wasn't supposed to be doing things that required pants. Aunt Alexandra's vision of my deportment involved playing with small stoves, tea sets, and wearing the Add-A-Pearl necklace she gave me when I was born; furthermore, I should be a ray of sunshine in my father's lonely life."

2.1.1.1. This demonstrates to the reader more about Scouts personality. from this the readers can learn that Scout prefers to be dressed causally rather than in a dress insinuating that she is a sorta Tom boy.

2.1.1.2. This also tells us about Scout's appearance. She may act like a tom boy but she also dresses like one too. She is against wearing any dresses.

2.2. Intelligent

2.2.1. "Now you tell your father not to teach you any more."

2.2.1.1. In this chapter Scout's new teacher is making scout feel bad about the fact that he had previously learnt things before he started school.

3. Motivated By

3.1. The character Scout is motivated by her beliefs and values including her strong family morals.

3.1.1. Explai

3.2. Her brother Jem, he doesn't necessarily motivate Scout but he has a huge effect on her. She takes what he says very seriously.

3.2.1. "“I was not so sure, but Jem told me I was being a girl, that girls always imagined things, that’s why other people hated them so, and if I started behaving like one I could just go off and find some to play with.”

4. Beliefs and Values

4.1. Strong Family Values

5. How others see her

5.1. A Leader

5.2. Others are intimidated by her

5.3. Has a lot of pride in herself

5.3.1. "What bothers me is that she and Jem will have to absorb some ugly things pretty soon...Scout's just as soon jump on someone as look at him if her pride's at stake.." (pg 88)

6. Textual Issues or concerns to Scout

6.1. "There's some folks who don't eat like us," she whispered fiercely, "but you ain't called on to contradict 'em at the table when they don't. That boy's yo' comp'ny and if he wants to eat up the table cloth you let him, you hear?" "He ain't company, Cal, he's just a Cunningham-" "Hush your mouth! Don't matter who they are, anybody sets foot in this house's yo' comp'ny, and don't you let me catch you remarkin' on their ways like you was so high and mighty! Yo' folks might be better'n the Cunninghams but it don't count for nothin' the way you're disgracin' 'em—if you can't act fit to eat at the table you can just set here and eat in the kitchen!" Calpurnia sent me through the swinging door to the diningroom with a stinging smack. (3.26-29)

6.1.1. This tells us that one of the concerns that is facing Scout is that her family has different morals to other families. They do things differently.

6.2. Atticus representing Tom Robinson.

6.2.1. Atticus representing Tom Robinson impacts Scout and Jem her brother hugely.

6.2.1.1. “The adults in Maycomb never discussed the case with Jem and me; it seemed that they discussed it with their children, and their attitude must have been that neither of us could help having Atticus for a parent, so their children must be nice to us in spite of him. The children would never have thought that up for themselves: had our classmates been left to their own devices, Jem and I would have had several swift, satisfying fist-fights apiece and ended the matter for good. As it was, we were compelled to hold our heads high and be, respectively, a gentleman and a lady.”
