One of my senior teammates in my track team had a friend in a nearby town that was suffering from the coach trying to “teach her” how to run and pace herself, but he was a little too touchy with her on her arms and legs and she felt uncomfortable, and because of this everybody started to avoid the coach and the practices. This really upset me because first, if the

He didn’t see it as fair because his father risked so much to bring the truth out in to the open. After all of the events involving Tom Robinson, Bob Ewell threatened to get Atticus back: “Mr. Bob Ewell stopped Atticus on the post office corner, spat in his face, and told him he’d get him if it took the rest of his life,” (217).

The theme of Because of Mr.Terupt can be many things but I personally think that it is acceptance . Acceptance because in the book the students learned to accept the fact that Mr. Terupt is hurt. For example, In page 135 peter said,”I didn’t know that Mr.T was going to be right there.” In that line peter is accepting that he threw the snowball and accidently hit Mr.Terupt.

A sense of sadness, grief,and pain overwhelms the reader.
