We choose this part of the  scene because we were curious of who” boo Radley” was. In this scene Jem and scout was explaining to dill, who boo Radley was. According to this scene Jem says “Judging from his tracks he’s about six and a half feet tall. He eats raw squirrels and all the cats he can catch. There’s a long jagged scar running all the way across his face. His teeth are yellow and rotten. His eyes are popped. And he drools most of the time” According to Jem boo Radley sounds very horrifying to the neighborhood. We were very anxious to read this part of the scene play, because of the way they think or assume boo Radley is. But is he really creepy.

While acting this scene out we had a very hard time. We had to restart the playing of the scene a couple of times. It was a great experience and fun to act out.

What we learned about this play is that people just assume things about one another which is not cool. Everyone thinks boo is scary and creepy when he’s not.
