I'm doing some practice questions for my Literature exam, but I'm stumped...
a) How does Harper Lee present attitudes to the Radley Family? (Page ref. 14-15)
b) What is the significance of the "mockingbirds" in the novel as a whole?

this is probably too late but hey. In tkam the motif of the mockingbird, and the mockingbird characters represent innocence and the need of protection from evil. E.g Boo Radley is seen as a mockingbird character as he is an innocent character who needs protecting the the evil that is Maycomb. Another mockingbird character is Tom Robbinson,and then maybe Dill and Mayella Ewell.
