Amy Tan’s autobiographical novel employs four different stories where mothers and their daughters retell in meetings their personal experiences on their relationships with one another.

Tan depicts her typical human experiences of being good, terrible and a good-bad mother. Archetypical “characters display stereotypical personalities, behaviors and characteristics regardless of how unique they may appear at first glance as, character archetypes are used by many writers as devices to help present a story” .

Lejla Hodzic Mrs.Monroe English III(H): Period 3 Journal Reflection-MP1 When first writing in my journal I struggled with how deep to go with my discussion questions and what I should be asking my classmates. I feel that I have struggled with this because I lack confidence on what I am trying to prove or say in my writing. When reading in the past I have never pushed myself to question the author’s purpose or ask questions that invoke much thought. Up to this point in the year writing in my journal as well as annotating in the text, has helped my reading and writing immensely. My journal this year mostly contains quotes from texts and points from in class discussions that I felt were useful to understanding the novel and its purpose.
When I moved to the small town of Luther, Oklahoma I didn 't talk much. I was shy and had trouble making friends. I couldn 't care less about my schoolwork, even though my teachers thought I was very bright. I wasn 't interested in sports. At my old school I was active in Girl Scouts, but I lost interest in that a year or two after moving.
Mr. Kovachs class went fairly well this semester. I came back to fort about a month into this year. By then the rest of the class had been finished with the first two chapters of a book called The Crucible. This did make it a little bit difficult to catch up, but not very much. To come into a new school and have to catch up on a fairly decent sized book, when I can 't stand reading anyway, was probably my only bad experience in the class.
Writing 101 is the first college level writing class I have ever taken. After I decided to enroll into UMUC, I enrolled concurrently into Humanities 100 and Writing 101. While juggling a full-time job and a two-year-old at home, I figured I should start off with what I considered to be easy, introductory courses. Over the past eight weeks, I have gained considerable knowledge in both courses, but Writing 101 has really challenged me academically. When I began Writing 101, I was not familiar with much of the course material and my writing skills were not developed; through the assignments and learning resources, I have now developed the skill set to develop thesis statements and complete coherent essays.
The predictions that came out of 300 Fox Way were unspecific, but undeniably true. Her mother had dreamt Blue’s broken wrist on the first day of school. Her aunt Jimi predicted Maura’s tax return to within ten dollars. Her older cousin Orla always began to hum her favorite song a few minutes before it came on the radio. No one in the house ever really doubted that Blue was destined to kill her true love with a kiss.

It 's not until after she dies that Scout and Jem get a sense of what 's going on behind the drool and venom.

Atticus tells the kids the lesson he hopes they 've learned from her.
