This worksheet explains the concept of dramatic foils and gives a model explanation of one pairs of foils in the novel - Calpurnia and Aunt Alexandra. The students then fill in an explanation for each of the other pairs of foils given - Atticus and Bob Ewell; Boo Radley and Nathan Radley; Maudie Atkinson and Stephanie Crawford. The aim is to encourage students to think about characters at a symbolic and functional level. This would make a good class activity or homework.
