For the first time in decades, Maycomb gets snow. School is closed, so Jem and Scout spend their  day trying to build a snowman. That night, Miss Maudie's house burns to the ground. Jem and Scout  are sent to wait in front of the Radley's while the fire is still raging. Boo Radley walks up and puts a  blanket around a shivering Scout's shoulders, but both she and Jem are too engrossed in the fire to  notice. The next day, Scout is surprised to find Miss Maudie in good spirits, working in her yard and  talking about expanding her garden. Near Christmastime, a classmate taunts Scout with the news that Atticus is defending a black man.  Atticus asks Scout to promise to "'hold your head high, and keep those fists down. . . . Try fighting  with your head for a change,'" — a promise Scout tries to uphold, with limited success. Uncle Jack

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
