What do you think Atticus is trying to teach Jem and Scout by making Jem read to Mrs. Dubose? Explain your answer fully.
What I am looking for:
thought!! I want you to think about what is going on. Why does Jem have to read to Mrs. Dubose? is it a punishment? what does Atticus think he'll learn? what does Atticus think Scout will learn? is it related to the 'crime'? is it more?
I am not looking for an essay, but you may if that is easier for you. I DO want a full page of real thinking, your original thoughts, use your brain, it likes the workout.
