The Maycomb Community in Harper Lee’s novel, To Kill a Mockingbird influence Scout to learn about the hard realities of life. An important theme from this novel is the change from how people see good and evil throughout the years. Everyone in the world should have the right to live in an anti racist society. The world would be a more enjoyable place, if children were not forced to grow up in an environment with social prejudice. The reader should recall that Scout is forced to live like this, but she doesn’t recognise what the real world is like because she is a child.
From this letter you can see Tourgees clear use of the word “another” meaning that other Republican men were targeted and killed by the KKK all because they fought to have the South follow the same rules as the North. It was as though the KKK felt personally battered so they enjoyed doing to same to men that caused such emotions. Politics within the white community was not the only issue. As mentioned before African Americans did not get the political freedom that was actually granted to them not only because of their race and low standing but they were “ ‘unfitted for the proper exercise of political duties… blacks needed a period of probation and instruction’ “ (Document D). The idea of them being an unfit race who was in need of probation and instruction seemed to more closely relate to white Klansmen of the South.
The book The Marshmallow test by Walter Mischel is all about how self-control is the most important thing in society. It really is the engine of success after reading this book. Many people would say a lot of things that are more important to be taught in schools like art and sports, but in my opinion I think how to have self-control is way more important because it teaches kids how to be responsible at a very young age. This book goes into the phycology behind self-control. I was interested in this book for many reasons but the main one is that I had a hard time trying to get stuff done on time because I had no self-control, this book opens eyes.
Finding out how cruel society is at a young age is a lot to take in but it can give so much in return. In the book To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, two characters, Jem and Scout, learn many valuable lessons from the real world that do not necessarily come from school education. The school life of Jem and Scout is not mentioned in the book that much, but from the scenes where they are mentioned, it seems to the reader that the school is sheltering them and holding them back. In real life, Jem and Scout are exposed to numerous events in which they use different lessons from the past and present to deal with these events. In particular, hardships often occur throughout To Kill A Mockingbird and bring aha moments to Jem and Scout.
Despite the dedication of atticus finch in “To Kill a Mockingbird”, the evidence, and a moving courtroom speech, Tom Robinson is convicted of a crime that he did not commit.

In order to read through the layers of interest that Lee exposes in her novel, the reader needs to understand the complex history of race relations in the South.Judgment on the race is an ongoing occurrence through the story and terrible events happened because of it like ” there's a black
It is society and people that imposed biased views into the young generations that cause adults to be prejudiced. Children are the best examples of this because more times than not, they do not exhibit signs of discrimination despite prejudices in society. Fricker gives Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird as an example of a nondiscriminatory child, in spite of the highly racist community she lived in. Another factor for Scout, and most other children, is how prejudiced their parents are and teach their child to be. A parent who teaches their child to be relatively unprejudiced against all people will then have a child who does not think that discrimination is the norm, despite societal rules.
The morality of a person define what a person’s decisions will be, or could this be influenced by other things. To Kill a Mockingbird is a book written by Harper Lee about racism and justice during the Great Depression. In Maycomb County, most people still aren’t over the confederate days, but Atticus Finch, a very ethical lawyer, and his family have to undergo a case over a black man. The thematic statement found in this book is,”A person’s surroundings will affects their choices and disregard morals.” This tells how the people in this book disregard some base morals and make choices. In To Kill a MockingBird there are examples of people disregarding their morals in mob mentality and letting society influence them, but keeping to a strict line they wouldn’t cross like Atticus defending Tom.
If they were to teach us like this than I would of remember what history was like and would not have hated it as much as I did before. We need to make sure our kids know about this history because its not boring at all if everything were the truths. “In the long run, however, "learning" history this way is not really satisfying. History textbooks and most high school history teachers give students no reason to love or appreciate the subject. We must not ignore the abysmal ratings that his-tory courses receive,24 and we cannot merely exhort students to like history more.
