11/7 child and adult world

Expanding our discussion of the dual narrative voice in To Kill a Mockingbird we are looking at how there are places where Scout and Jem struggle to understand adult topics:

  • race separation
  • class separation
  • poverty
  • education
  • family
  • religion

Often, it is Atticus or Miss Maudie who clues in the children on what is going on. We also notice that Jem is starting to understand more than Scout.
