The short story "Too many Tamales" by Gary Soto describes the story of a girl who wants to wear her mom 's ring but thinks that it got dropped into the tamales, but her mom actually wore it the whole time. Both stories tell kids that they should not keep secrets and tell the truth instead. The book "The Bloody Souvenir" tells kids that they should tell an adult/guardian immediately before something gets worse. In the story, the narrator did not want to tell his mom what happened about his wart, so he tried to hide it up. But it gets worse and the narrator still did not want to tell his mom.
“First of all,” he said. “If you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you’ll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. 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”(30). Atticus said that to Scout when she complains about her first day of school that her teacher, Miss Caroline, told her that Atticus taught her all wrong and not to read anymore. Atticus later explain that they could not expect Miss Caroline to learn all Maycomb’s way in one day, because she is from another place, and they could not hold her responsible when she know no better.
Characterization of Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird In To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee uses Jean Louise (Scout) Finch as the narrator. Scout is now an adult and reflects on three very crucial summers during her childhood days. When Scout is first described in the novel, she is prone to violence, labels people based on class, denigrates people, uses racist language, and is prejudice (Seidel 1). All of these things show that she is childish at the beginning of the novel. A mature character would not pick a fight or label people based on their money; however, by the end of the novel, Scout sees that these things are wrong.
Catcher in the Rye In the book Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger, the narrator and protagonist Holden Caulfield a sixteen year old junior undergoes a series of changes. Holden learns multiple life changing lessons; one of them is you must grow up. In the beginning of the novel, Holden starts out as “that kid”; the one with the parents who expect him to get into an ivy league school, and end up with a kid with no intentions of doing so.

When I was writing my response, I thought of the word gender but nonconformity never came to mind when I read the story. Non-conformity is a good way to explain why people are distracted by the girls since it doesn’t follow the norm of the community. Do you think Sammy might be a little embarrassed for the girls since he explains in paragraph ten, “… the women generally put on a shirt or shorts or something…”? Another good point you brought up is stereotypical view. Sammy has the stereotypical view of women in A&P referring to them as “house-slaves in pin curlers” and the younger girls through his vivid descriptions of what the girls appearance in their bathing suits.
Scout didn 't understand when Mrs. Caroline said, “Now you tell your father not to teach you anymore. It is best to begin reading with a fresh mind. You tell him I’ll take you over here and try to undo the damage” (Lee 19). Scout 's experience in school has helped her understand people better. When Miss Caroline offered Walter Cunningham a quarter and Walter didn 't except it, Scout informed Miss Caroline that he 's a Cunningham and Cunningham 's never take anything that they can 't pay back.
The Absence of Aunt Alexandra in the movie is major mishap on the director for she played a key role in the development of Scout as a woman. Alexandra, Veering Scout from her childish and tomboy phases drastically changed Scouts overall character in the book, but left her unabsided in the movie. Without Alexandria, Scout would have been uncontrollable and reckless; and would have never been able to behave in the Courtroom, or at Calpurnia 's Church. Another difference in the movie is the absence of Miss Maudie 's house burning down. Miss Maudie 's house burning down in the book separated Jem and Scout from Atticus late at night outside Boo Radley 's house.
Elizabeth already had doubts about darcy, who at the start of the book was very egotistic in his way of thinking, his belief of a perfect wife baffled elizebeth into rage. Austen uses this in the start of the book, but then deviates into a darcy that starts to not care about the so called “social hierarchy” his family had instilled in him from a very young age. Instead he is intrigued by elizabeth who is from a low class, and poor family. Austen developes darcy using the combatment of his own thinking due to a manic pixie dream girl type of character, while she creates the villain in whickman. She dissuades from social class and uses more reputation to build whickman into what we have seen so far.
