To Kill a Mockingbird should still be taught in school systems, and should not be a banned book because the novel focuses on a part of history that should not be ignored. Just because history is harsh and not always the most pleasant thing to learn about, does not mean that we can ignore it. Kenya Down with PBS said, “Being uncomfortable with history is not means to change it; people need to figure out how to confront issues.” Down also mentioned how Lee’s book is one of the most banned books
Instead, if they love each other they could find a way to stop this tension. Acts of violence and hate are never the answer to any problem, yet people seek it just to have fun, show pride, or be gallant. In The Outsiders there was a rumble between the Socs and Greasers to show who’s boss, but after this epic fight nothing changed. All of the Greasers were hurt really bad, the only thing they got for this loss was the Socs being chased out

Ender’s Game by: “Orson Scott Card.” The conflict that I found most interesting in Ender’s Game was, Ender v’s Ender. Ender had many problems, one of his main problems was he did not want to kill anyone. Ender was a great leader, but being a great leader had its consequences. The whole conflict would affect Ender in how well he will do in battle school. Ender never wanted to kill anyone.
Giles shows the personality trait of being dependable by helping John during the witch trials. John wanted to go to the court to prove that his wife, as well as his friends’ wives, are innocent.

It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do” (Lee 149). Atticus’ quote of courage foreshadows the results of the trial, he knew the end result of the trial, but he fought against it anyways, although he did not win. Another act that justifies Atticus’ courage is keeping Calpurnia despite Aunt Alexandra’s strong disagreement. Atticus said: “She’s a faithful member of this family and you’ll have to simply accept things the way they are” (Lee 182), this reveals Atticus’ courage because he kept Calpurnia even though there are controversies of having an African American house member as shown by Alexandra.
From when they first met, Jim trusted Huck with his life. Being the runaway slave that he was, Jim had to trust that Huck wouldn’t turn him in. There were many times in the book where Huck could’ve turned Jim in but decided not to. This creates a deeper understanding of the story as it shows just how loyal Huck really was. It also gives us an understanding of why he is also very loyal to his good friend Tom.

If your best friend is in a fight with someone you are going to take your best friends side and help them out. In the article Saul says that the boys being tested weren’t like a, “gang” and that they were normal well behaved kids but to an extent they actually were similar to a gang. They were like a gang because they all only had each other to depend on as they are going for the prize and they are always going to be prejudice towards anyone who is trying to get in the way of that. There was an argument that claims that the kids didn’t believe the study results were true because they didn’t understand the experiment, which to me doesn’t make sense, because if the
He did not mind of course for he wanted it to succeed and he could see it in the eyes of the officials and guards that they were terrified of the rebellion and they know that the government is losing the game of cat and mouse which they played with the rebilion. Michael lost track of time completely and soon did not even remember what the outside looked, for now, he only cared about surviving the beating and the questionings that were set up by the officials. He swore that he would never crack and so far he never did and just nodded his head. He knew how much he angered the officials and sometimes he believed that they called down the sergeant to terrify him but yet he is never
Personal Reactions: I liked how Lev’s character was developed throughout the story. Lev’s main focus in the beginning of the book is to escape from his “kidnappers” and be tithed like his parents wanted, but he is so focused on obeying his parents that he doesn’t notice the people who he thinks kidnapped him are trying to save him from being unwound. As the story progresses it’s obvious Lev no longer feels the same way, this is shown on page 226 when Shusterman states, “Once he landed in the safe-house network, he quickly made it known that he was not a guy to be trifled with. He didn’t tell them he was a tithe. Instead, he told them his parents signed the order to have him unwound after he was arrested for armed robbery”.
He grew up being unkind and thinking that he could get away with anything he did especially when it was announced that he would be becoming a police officer and had been accepted into the academy. But with the arrival of Erin brought a small change to him, as she was willing to stick her neck out for Ned and stand up for him. This ended making him more conniving, no longer willing to stick with his chant of “Neddy, Neddy, never ready; ain’t got nothing in his heady.” (p. 3) but rather resorting to labelling Ned “‘DISTURBED & DANGEROUS’” (p. 155). Nigel’s friends are also a factor that must be considered as they also took part in bullying Ned proving them to not be some of the best people and shaping Nigel in a way. Nigel having “Too much cruelty, too little patience.” Is something that can change him and others that surround him, whether it be him exploding at someone or not, he is a prime example of shaping yourself however not in a positive way.
