In this journal I will be predicting and Evaluating the story. To start off my prediction, I think that Jem and Scout will not meet Boo. For one the boys are terrified of him. People say he is really scary looking. He has a scar across his face. His hands are bloody from all of the pets animals he has mutilated. He drools ALL THE TIME Also there are a bunch of scary stories that have gone around about him. They say he was in a gang, and they went to riverside Gambling, and experimented with whiskey. They also say that one night when Boo was cutting up newspapers he jabbed his dad in the leg with scissors and then continued cutting paper as if it had never happened. Thirdly he mutilate neighbor cats/dogs and that is the reason his hands are so bloody. I also think they will …show more content…
In this journal I will be Evaluating the characterization of the Ewells the story. In the story the Ewell family comes off as very uneducated. They do not attend school as they should, Usually only the first day of every year. One of the Ewells (Burris) was asked to spell his first name by the teacher, but he replied that he couldn’t because he didn’t know how to. The sad thing is he is not embarrassed about his spelling or that this level of knowledge is normal for him, in fact he states that if he gets smarter this year ( In one day) they might move him up a grade, he doesn’t understand that one day doesn’t teach you much, let alone enough to go up a whole grade! The Ewell father of Burris definitely does not enforce education, he just doesn’t seem to care. These kids have no mother figure either so if you count one alcoholic dad and a missing mom to help you with your homework you have another thing coming. They are the least knowledgable people and definitely a disgrace to Maycomb. Atticus would enforces that his kids learn even at home they read all the time, Scout even knew how to read before school started, as you compare Scout to Burris you can definitely see the difference, and can tell that Burris’s father does not help

The kids are also scared of him because there are a lot of scary stories about him. He is said to kill people's pets and other small creatures. When people's flowers are closed, it’s blamed on Boo. He also stabbed his father’s leg with a pair of scissors in the middle of nowhere. Another reason they will not meet Boo is because he has not been seen in a long time.
To Kill a Mockingbird Journal #3 I am in the middle of the Novel “To Kill A Mockingbird” in which so far there has been conflict with families in a small town in Alabama. Some conflict between these families is what is considered the good thing to do and what is considered the bad thing to do. In this journal I will be evaluating the Character Atticus and his most recent of emulation between his heart and his town.
Within chapter one, Lee included plenty of foreshadowing for the other chapters. For one, Scout describes the story of Boo Radley heavily, which was a major part of Scout, Jem, and Dill’s childhood. The insight Scout provides to Boo characterizes him as a fearful villain, who “dined on raw squirrels and any cats he couldn’t catch.” (14) However, this later proves to be

Everybody thought that Boo Radley Radley was weird and gross. Everybody but Scout after Boo radley put a blanket around Scout while they were out during the winter in Maycomb.
To Kill a Mockingbird Dialectical Journal #4 "I try to give 'em a reason, you see. It helps folks if they can latch onto a reason... in the clutches of whiskey - that's why he won't change his ways. He can't help himself, that's why he lives the way he does... they could never understand that I live like I do because that's the way I want to live" (Lee 268). (CH) Most people in the town of Maycomb could believe that Dolphus was an abomination, a drunk - whatever one would call him.
I am reading To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. In Chapters 10-15 Jem and Scout learn new things that they didn’t know about their father. Their Aunt Alexandra comes to live with them.

Then it was dill’s last summer night in maycomb and jem decided why not try to make boo radley come out but who knew they would end making me come out. Who knew that jem, scout and dill would end up liking me. No one really saw that coming. At that point jem, scout
They also learn that the reason Boo Radley’s hands are bloodstained are because he eats any squirrels or cats he finds. Jem also describes him as a horrific scary monster, but these are only based on facts that Stephanie Crawford has told them and the town. Jem and Scout are curious with these tales as they try to get Boo out of house, so they can see how he looks like.
Miss Maudie tells Scout that Miss Stephanie is only lying about seeing Boo outside her window. The only other event where Boo was bad was when he was with his “gang” and he was still punished by his father for his actions. Another reason Boo is shown as the mockingbird of the book is because he has only hurt one person. The only person that Boo has hurt was his father and that is still just a rumor. When Boo stabbed his father with the scissors his father punished him and did not let him go without consequences.

If not for the major characters, the minor characters have played an equally important role in Maycomb with their contrasting views. The novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is mainly about Jem and Scout growing up under the difficult situations created in Alabama during The Great Depression. Stereotypes and discrimination are major problems in Maycomb. Scout and Jem Finch are raised by Atticus, with the help of Calpurnia, their maid. In the first part of the book, Scout, Jem and Dill are fascinated by Boo Radley because of the rumors they hear about him, and they try everything to make him come out of his house.
The way the people and the town influence Jem and Scout make the characters more realistic and the overall story much more interesting. To Kill a Mockingbird is an exceptional novel that conveys many positive messages throughout. In her novel, Lee creates honest and relatable characters that take the reader on a journey through life in the south during the Great Depression. Readers are impressed by Lee’s eloquent writing and amazing characters, all of which make To
