Chapter 12 (116-128) 

  • Comment on Jem's and Scout's visit to First Purchase church. 
  • What new things does Scout learn here about how the black people live? 
  • What does Scout learn from Calpurnia's account of Zeebo's education? 
  • Explain why Calpurnia speaks differently in the Finch household, and among her neighbours at church.

Chapter 13 (128-136)

  • Why does Aunt Alexandra come to stay with Atticus and his family? What is she like? 
  • Read the first two things Alexandra says when she comes to the Finch house. Are these typical of her or not? 
  • Alexandra thinks Scout is “dull” (not clever). Why does she think this, and is she right? Are all adults good at knowing how clever young people are? 
  • How does Aunt Alexandra involve herself in Maycomb's social life? 
  • Comment on Aunt Alexandra's ideas about breeding and family. Why does Atticus tell them to forget it? Who is right, do you think?
