Part One enables the reader get to know the personality of the characters; it is full of anecdotes of the adventures of Jem and Scout. One of the most important parts in Part One is the whole issue with Boo Radley. Part Two deals with the issue of racial discrimination when Atticus is called to defend a black man accused of ****** a white girl.

So basically, part one deals with Boo Radley and part two deals with racial discrimination, so its significance of having two parts is so that each part can deal with an issue, and by the end of the book, both parts can come together.

Hope this helps!
