Finding out how cruel society is at a young age is a lot to take in but gives so much in return. In the book To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, two characters Jem and Scout learn many valuable lessons that do not necessarily come from school education. Throughout the book, valuable lessons Jem and Scout learn are more found in real-life rather than in a school atmosphere. The school life of Jem and Scout is not mentioned in the book that much, but from the scenes they are mentioned, seems to the reader that the school is protecting them and holds them back. In real-life, Scout and Jem are revealed to court cases, racism, murder, and etc.
At times when I read there are words that I don’t quite understand. When this happens I look up the word and see how I could use it. This also goes back to my writing, if I find a word in a book that I have read I can add it to my writing to improve my writing skills. When I see the effect of reading on my knowledge it makes me proud of myself because I used to get teased for always reading, but that didn’t matter to me because , in the end, I knew that reading would help me. All those people that teased me for always reading were probably envious of how much knowledge that I could acquire from just reading one book.
Much More than Just Mythology? Readers… Some are good, others great but there are some who are just plain awful. Not in the sense of actually reading but understanding the real content of the book and what it’s actually trying to communicate. Most see children books and judge, thinking they are just mere stupidities with nonsense themes that have no foundation or “true” content. However, as everything in life, exceptions prevail.
The Joy Luck Club was a very hard read for me. I did not follow or comprehend what I was reading most of the time and I’m not going to lie, I had to Shmoop most of it. After getting through the whole book I appreciate the message between mothers and daughters that it is trying to convey but I still did not enjoy the book to its full extent. I did not enjoy the book for two reasons, its sequencing, and the fact that I did not relate to most of it but I did enjoy how real it was. The first reason I hate the Joy Luck Club was the sequencing of the book.

His intake form described having manic tendencies in the past, though there was not enough information there to really get to the core reason for them. I was able to inquire more relevant details about having weekly “ups and downs” that led to these tendencies, furthering my ability to potentially correctly diagnosis him. Additionally, I found that clients usually do not freely offer up tons of information during an intake without being prompted, thus direct questions were my best approach. Asking open-ended questions whenever taking a direct approach was a great technique that allowed for the client to have long and elaborate
It highlights lots of great themes like conflict, coming of age and friendships. In addition, characters like Scout and Atticus were wonderful to read about and relatable to a lot of us. Through the use of specific point of view, the author has managed to create a feel of realistic portrayal of that time with the characters. It is a book which should be read in school or in adult life, without complete and utter absorption. It would be ironic to ban To kill a mockingbird especially in times like this.

My whole life I have struggled with seeing how what might not be that important to me can mean the world to someone else. I have come off as insensitive and rude before because it is just difficult for me to understand and it is something I have been really trying to work on for several years now. Although I have seen myself improve in this aspect of my personality, I see much more room for bettering myself in regards to what I consider to be my biggest flaw.
