She learns this from Atticus in a couple of ways. One way is when Atticus tells Scout not to judge Miss Caroline. Scout is very angry with Miss Caroline and thinks she is a mean, prissy person. Scout is told to walk around in Miss Caroline’s skin to see where she is coming from. Even though she doesn’t necessarily understand it, she later learns that she shouldn’t judge people so quickly, and applies it when she meets a new person.
The irony throughout the story taught her that you’ll never really know how somebody is till you meet them. The flashback just helped her remember all the good times they had but also that maybe assuming how someone is isn't such a good idea. The figurative language shows how boo kinda seem scared and asked scout for a ride home. Atticus told scout that ‘you’ll never really know someone till you meet them”. I personally think that the world would be much better if people would take the time to know the person before they judge
After Scout fights with Walter Cunningham, Jem invites him over for dinner but Scout is very rude. After a scolding from Calpurnia, Scout wants to fix her mistake and invite Walter over to play to make her for her actions. This shows that even though she can act tough and mean that she means well and has a good heart. Another kind-hearted act occurs during the trial. During Tom's testimony she realizes Dill does not feel well, she escorts him outside to get some fresh air.
This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
The women in the novel show and share their love with one another by gifting baskets of food. A rejection of a meal is therefore a rejection of care, love and effort into a relationship. Grant observes that “nothing could have hurt [Tante Lou] more when I said I was not going to eat her food” (24). By refusing her symbol of affection and eating instead at a restaurant in Bayonne, Grant denounces his aunt’s efforts to care and love for a family member. The day after this incident, Tante Lou sarcastically remarks, “’Food there if you want it.
I think that Jem, Dill, and Scout are really afraid of him but the novel say “the Radley Place fascinated Dill”(pg.10). They think that Boo Radley is mean and that he attacked his dad. And I think Scout is the most afraid of him because she is the youngest and Jem tells her things that people have told him about Boo Radley and Scout believes they are true. Up until Miss Maudie was talking to Scout about Boo Radley, Arthur Radley, she was highly afraid of him.
When I was reading Mark Twain’s short story “Advice to Little Girls”, it was not what I was expecting. Seeing the title made me think of advice that helps little girls with daily tasks. In reality the story told little girls to obey everything her brother or mother told her to do. Paragraph four says, “If at any time you find it necessary to correct your brother, do not correct him with mud, or any account throw mud at him, because it will spoil his clothes.” Reading this line made me think of a little girl getting picked on and not defending herself because she was told to obey what others told her.
“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view- until you climb into his skin and walk around in it,” (Lee 39). This quote of Atticus’ from Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird holds true in many situations. Sometimes people don’t think about how they might be wrong and are only focused on trying to be right. This quote will be proven true by my exemplifying of an argument with my mother, both sides of the argument, and its relation back to the novel To Kill a Mockingbird.
2. Explain how a character is acting and why you think the character is acting that way. Scout is acting out at school; she nearly starts a fight with a classmate (Cecile Jacobs), after Cecile said “Scout Finch’s daddy defends niggers”. And another day she cursed and beat up Francis because he called Atticus a “nigger-lover.”
Harper Lees, To Kill a Mockingbird, is a coming of age story where many life lessons are learned such as looking at things from other peoples perspective. In the beginning of the story, Scout is only able to see people from her point of view. Throughout the rest of the story, Atticus helps Scout grow from a young child to become more mature, from experience if not in age. When Scout has trouble with her new teacher Mrs. Caroline, Atticus suggests that she should look at things from other peoples perspective in order to better get along with them.
o This innocence, and lack of knowledge of the world she lives in and her gradual understanding allows readers to gradually understand, along with Scout, the world Scout lives in. It also allows readers to interpret and make their own realizations about Maycomb and the way of life
Ms. Caroline Fisher has a tone that Scouts ignorant and just needs to be quiet. But, Scout is confused and a bit annoyed because she had been able to read the alphabet, mobile register, and my first reader and the teacher told her that it was bad. You can tell from the quote neither of them is happy and it shows what kind of a teacher she is. Ms. Caroline in the story has a very uptight personality and is not used to a place like Maycomb where everything 's
I can connect to Scout because I too have felt left out or made to feel unimportant by my sibling. In the book we can see Scout is made to believe that she is too young to play with Jem and Dill because he is older thinks he can boss her around. We see this when Jem and Dill start leaving Scout out of their planning in their treehouse. Also, this causes Scout to feel left out enough that she begins to spend more time at Miss Maudie’s house.
In many circumstances, we tend to prematurely decide, for ourselves, the details of people’s lives. As found in this excerpt from the story, To Kill a Mockingbird, Scout makes the journey to decipher her mislead beliefs about the Ewell family with the help of her father, Atticus. He helps her understand: why they don’t go to school, hunt out of season, and overall are excused by the township. Scout first questions the necessity of her going to school while the Ewells only come for as long as they wish.
