Put Yourself In Other People’s Shoes


View the video summary and analysis of To Kill a Mockingbird  in the TKAM section of the Moodle.  One theme introduced is “you don’t know someone until you put yourself in someone else’s shoes.”

Put yourself in the shoes of one TKAM character.  Describe yourself:  your thoughts, your opinions. What do you look like?  How old are you?  What is your bedroom like?  What do you dream about?  What do you fear? What is your strength?  Your weakness?  What size and kind of shoes do you wear? The worst thing you did or said in the novel?  The best thing you did or said in the novel? How do you feel about Mayella Ewell?

Choose one character, and write as if you were that character, answering the above questions about yourself:  Scout, Calpurnia, Jem, Dill, Miss Maudie.
