Writing from a different perspective

Consider how a different character might have described the jailhouse scene.  Ask them to rewrite the scene from the perspective of another character who was there: Tom Robinson, Walter Cunningham, Atticus, or Jem.  


  • How does the character understand what the men intended to do when they arrived at the courthouse?


  1. How did the character feel when Scout ran to Atticus?  How did he respond?
  2. How would the character explain why the men decided to leave?  To whom does the character give credit for convincing them to back down?
