Sherman is attempting to save children’s lives by teaching them the importance of education and not all students take advantage of that. In the story Superman and Me Sherman mentioned, “They wanted me to stay quiet when the non-indian teacher asked for answers, for volunteers, for help.” These students may feel different when a non-indian teacher asks for things because it might be out of their comfort zone.

He also said in the story, “Then there are the sullen and already defeated Indian kids who sit in the back rows and ignore me with theatrical precision.” The ones that have taken the path away from success are not accepting they they can make a comeback

The feeling, No one likes me is a terrible feeling and I believe that people should get to know people before they judge. But in New Boy, it is showing a separate way of appearance.

Logos formed only after the authority was established. Pathos was deeply engrained in everyone, wishing for help to come all along. An adult in uniform questioning others will usually end up being the cause for reevaluation of one’s motives, behaviors, and what they stand for. The very same predicament of morals versus survival which the boys struggle with is reflected at the ending. This struggle was not seen by Wendy L. Sunderman, but she recognized the ability from her own students that any group of people can reenact the same experiences Golding imagined.

Atticus has his children read to a bitter old lady named Mrs. Dubose. His reasoning being that “‘I wanted you to see something about her—I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand’” (Lee 149). With Atticus teaching his children about Mrs. Dubose, he hopes it can help them understand that other people go through incredibly tough times in their lives and that they should understand how they should treat and feel about them. Despite the fact that the children were first given this task as punishment for scolding her, Atticus still would “‘[..] have made you go read
This is shown through the actions of Atticus both in and outside of the trial. Atticus tries his best to teach and show others-specifically Scout and Jem-how to judge what is right and what is wrong.

This is said when Scout was complaining to Atticus about her day at school, he said to 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 30). Atticus is telling scout that she cannot truly judge someone's actions until she sees things from their side.
