A1: Scout begins to see from Boo Radley's eyes what he has had the privilege to watch all this time... the kids enjoying their gifts in the knothole, enacting the 'Boo Radley' drama, watching the incident with the dog among other things.

A2:

1. At school Scout learns from experience that not everyone is from Maycomb and therefore comes into life with different experiences and we all just work to get along in spite of differences.

2. From the knothole, when Mr. Nathan cements it shut, she learns that adults lie with reason, but she didn't quite understand the reason.

3. She learned that her father had more value and skill than he ever let on. This modeled the value of humility or modesty.

4. Mrs. Dubose taught the children that some things in life are worth fighting through, worth disciplining the self through, and are worth doing right.

5. I think she taught Atticus more about courage than he taught her. But she did learn he did it because it was right to defend his client even if it meant outside the bounds of the courtroom.

6. From the trial, Scout learned that color influenced truth and lies. Race ruled in this case and she knew it wasn't right.

7. From meeting Boo Radley she learned that things aren't always what they seem and it is better to refrain from judgment until you know someone.
