THINGS JEM & SCOUT LEARN IN CHAPTER 10

  • They learn Atticus can play the Jew's Harp.
  • They learn he is a crack marksman.
  • They learn that his old nickname was "One-Shot" Finch when he was a child.
  • They learn the definition of humility--the reason why Atticus never bragged about his shooting talent.
  • Jem recognizes that "Atticus is a gentleman, just like me!"
