Turn in your spiral to an empty page (I know we are running out of pages so do your best).  Write down the quote and then explain its significance:

"To our amazement, Reverend Sykes emptied the
 can onto the table and raked the coins into his
hand. He straightened up and said, 'This is not
enough, we must have ten dollars'" (Lee 102).
  1. Why was money being collected?
  2. Who would get the money?
  3. Why does this person need money?
  4. How is Calpurnia's church different from Scout's usual church?
2. Get out your chapter 12 titles. Now tell me why you chose that title. Collect.
