    Haven't really got chapter references but atticus' speech in the court room is good for most things.. Also walking back from school at the end shows Jem and scouts relationship well.. The house on fire and the blanket shows boo radley aunt Alexandra says a lot about expectations of that era in maycomb.. Attucks shows a lot of respect in all aspects and always refer to the beginning for descriptions or when it is first talked about in the book. Haven't got the book on me so can't do quotes at the moment,sorry x

    Not sure if this is a particularly helpful response but you could have a brief skim of each chapter and make a note of the general events that are covered in each.
    For example, you could note that chapter 9 covers the arrival of Aunt Alexandra, Uncle Jack and Francis, chapter 10 revolves around shooting Tim Johnson and chapter 11 is about Mrs Dubose (etc etc).

    Doing that might help you to remember where to look in the book if you remember the event the quote links to.

    I did this for gcse two years ago now but we were always taught to learn a few quotes relating to each theme off by heart, as looking for quotes in the exam wastes valuable time. It's easier just to learn the main ones, and only use the book as a last resort if you forget something, I remember I only used the book once
