Chapter 20

  • Scout says that “Mr. Dolphus Raymond was an evil man”. Is she right? 
  • In most states of the USA people who drink alcohol in public places are required to hide their bottle in a paper bag. Why does Dolphus Raymond hide Coca-Cola in a bag? 
  • What, according to Atticus, is the thing that Mayella has done wrong? 
  • Explain, in your own words, Atticus's views on people's being equal. 
Chapter 21
  • What does Jem expect the verdict to be? Does Atticus think the same? 
  • What is unusual about how long it takes the jury to reach a verdict? Is the verdict predictable or not? 
  • As Scout waits for the verdict, she thinks of earlier events. What are these and how do they remind us of the novel's central themes?

Summarizer:  Prediction - what will happen in Maycomb when the verdict is read? Why?
