Lee teachers her audience to become open-minded by having Scout learn through external conflicts. These external conflicts help teach empathy throughout the novel, one being with Miss Caroline, the outsider teacher. The use of metaphors help the readers better relate to the points being made, one which is introduced through Atticus in chapter 3, "You never really understand a person . . . until you climb into his skin and walk around in it," teaching Scout and readers to look at the bigger picture of a situation.

To Kill A Mockingbird leaves a big impact on the reader’s characterization of Scout’s maturity. She started out as a rebellious and childish girl but then starts to form into a mature and understanding woman. The Tom Robinson trial is one instance where the reader can see how Scout has changed during the novel up until this point. Scout has changed drastically throughout the novel and the Tom Robinson trial is an incredible example of it. The literary elements the chapters present allow the reader to acknowledge how Scout gradually
I found in reading stages one, two and four they closely resemble my own transition in my college career. Karen Russell describes stage one of the transformations as the period of excitement for exploring a new environment. Each new class I sign up for brings with it enthusiasm of learning something new. I am provided a chance to not only learn a new subject but meet new classmates. Russell describes Sister Maria slapping a name tag on one of the girls with her name and then goes on to say, “The rest of the pack ran in a loose, uncertain circle, torn between our instinct to help her and our new fear.

Personal Literacy Narrative Reading and writing is a tool everybody needs in their lifetime the basic reading and writing skills are used on a daily base no matter what field you plan to study. Reading and writing are taught at a young age. I personally was taught by preschool I noticed on how I grew with my writing and how I became a better reader and writer throughout my life I personal love reading and writing it’s a way for everyone to express themselves through their choice of words. Everybody learns how to read and write differently some students tend to be stronger than others, personally speaking I feel I tend to be higher in reading then writing.
In reading this piece I have found it to be interesting that the author included her personal experiences in here. For example, when she relates her birth with Bella’s birth. Sarah Blackwood stated that she felt like the narrative’s representation of pregnancy and birth was somehow very real excluding the part about the half-vampire half-human baby. It’s interesting to me, because I didn’t know that
As I read the beginning of chapter 12 Jem 's hit the middle school years, and everyone knows what that means: he 's angsty, moody, prone to prolonged silences broken by angry outbursts, and he all of a sudden thinks Scout should act like a girl. Also the story says that Jem is now the age of twelve, but he is now starting to get to the age where he doesn 't want to hang out with Scout and also feels annoyed. Also to add to Scout’s trouble, Dill will not be coming to Maycomb this summer, but Calpurnia eases her loneliness. What is even worse that Atticus has been called by the state legislature and to come into a special session and is away for two weeks. Calpurnia doesn 't trust Jem and Scout to go to church by themselves (there was a past
We first see Scout experiencing racism in the street when Lafayette Dubose rudely teases her and Jem because her father is a “nigger-lover” for taking the case on the side of Tom Robinson. Jem destroys her flowers, and they both go home, but Atticus knows what they did and tells them the meaning of the phrase. Atticus tells them that it means someone who puts himself or herself above Negros, and that he is indeed a “nigger-lover” because he tries his best to love everybody. He goes on to explain that everybody will be saying that because no one wants the Negro to win in the trial, as the townspeople believe that will lead to worse crimes from Negroes. Therefore, Scout realizes this may happen many more
When he denies them and Mayella’s father comes into the yard tom runs away because he knows something bad will come from this. After tom is gone Mayella’s father forces her to say that Tom Robinson abused her. Mayella is powerless because of her gender, the class she lives in, and the respect she gets from those around her. Mayella has never really been respected before. When in court she is examined by Atticus and he does nothing but call her “ma’am” and “miss Mayella” and she sees it as him mocking her.
(lee 101) This example shows that Atticus doesn 't want Scout to get into anymore fights at school; instead he wants her to think about what she is doing first. Whenever Cecil Jacobs called Atticus a name Scout got mad and she was going to beat him up , but she remembered what Atticus said and she calmed down and walked away. More and more she is put to the test every day but she
A book as a piece of public history is good. It is readily available to people and if people were to study about racial segregation this is a book that will certainly help. However this source may bring awareness to history students not necessarily the public. In 2010, the Viola Desmond Chair in Social Justice was established. It is located in Cape Breton University.
For example on page 48 lee says “ Dill if you won 't hush i 'll knock you bowlegged. In other words this is scout talking to her childhood friends. This illustrates that Harper Lee had a childhood friend just like Dill. As one can see this connects back because it shows how harper lee took her childhood and put some of it in the book.
