Essay Topic

By the end TKAM, what are Scout's values and how did she arrive at them? How do her values reflect the values of Maycomb? What did she pick and choose?

Thursday we narrowed our topic down to specific values:

Race, gender, class etc.

Then we divided the values into the subcultures with differing points of view.

(Ex: Gender: Traditional Femininity / Feminist, free-spirits, individuals)

Next we asked:

Who are the spokespeople for these subcultures?

Then we sketched a tentative outline.

Friday we started looking for evidence.


Let's try another kind of outline: Mapping.

How to integrate (weave in) the evidence?

MLA requires

  1. In text
  2. Works Cited
    1. Let's look at Hacker first.

Then my notes.
