16. Describe the relationship between Dill and Scout. Include how he treats her and how she reacts to his treatment. How is this treatment typical and atypical (not typical) of this setting?

17. Characterize Miss Maudie Atkinson (characterization = personality traits, actions, thoughts/feelings, other people’s points of view). How typical is she of Maycomb’s women? What do the children think of her?

She is a supportive of Atticus and his efforts in defending Tom, which does not always make the rest of the community like her, but it does mean that the kids will respect and trust her.
18. What reasons does Atticus give for the children not to play the Boo Radley game? Do you think he is right? Why?
Atticus tells Jem, Dill, and Scout that they will give everyone the wrong idea about Boo Radley. No I don’t think that Atticus was right because it’s just a game and the kids honestly probably don’t think of it that way, plus the adults should not make judgments based on the kids’ game.
