Answer:

I remember doing this assignment back when we had read To Kill a Mockingbird sophmore year! Here are a few examples that I've found in my packet:

Explanation:

Diction:
"Scout yonder's been readin' ever since she was born, and she ain't even started to school yet. " (Chapter 1)
Focus on the slang that is being used

Syntax:
"People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for."
