Close Reading and Analysis of Power Passages

What does the novel seem to suggest about judging others, seeing other or new perspectives, or changing perspectives and judgments? What do the characters learn about perspectives and judgments? What might we as readers take away from this novel in regards to perspectives and judgments?

Consider…

  • learning empathy
  • seeing other perspectives — think Ewell, Cunningham, Finch, Robinson, social status, “caste system in Maycomb”
  • how perspectives change — think the African-American community with First Purchase Church and Reverend Sykes, Mrs. Dubose, and Boo Radley
