“‘...you’ve got to do something about her,” Aunty was saying. ‘You’ve let things go on too long Atticus, too long.’” (Lee, 136). Aunt Alexandra was a fickle creature, insisting things be done in a proper manner, done with such etiquette, such precision. Harper Lee’s “To Kill A Mockingbird” tells a compelling story of growing up and coping with the aspects of everyday life, even when it be out of the ordinary. Scout being a young and free girl had to learn to cope with the everyday pressure of her Aunt Alexandra’s expectations pushing her down.
Earlier when Scout finished her first day and fears that school will always be just as bad as the first and “Jem assured [her] that the older [she] got the better school would be”(Lee,...). Jem showed courage because telling Scout that school was always be bad he did the right thing and told her what she needed to hear. Later in summer Jem and Dill want to talk to Boo
Her father Atticus didn’t raise her with the goal to make her the perfect lady, but tried to teach her to use her mind and have empathy with others. He didn’t try to change her and force her to be something that she is not. He accepts her for who she is, because “she knows (he) know she tries”. Scout is smart, even if she
She learns this from Atticus in a couple of ways. One way is when Atticus tells Scout not to judge Miss Caroline. Scout is very angry with Miss Caroline and thinks she is a mean, prissy person. Scout is told to walk around in Miss Caroline’s skin to see where she is coming from. Even though she doesn’t necessarily understand it, she later learns that she shouldn’t judge people so quickly, and applies it when she meets a new person.
When I was reading Mark Twain’s short story “Advice to Little Girls”, it was not what I was expecting. Seeing the title made me think of advice that helps little girls with daily tasks. In reality the story told little girls to obey everything her brother or mother told her to do. Paragraph four says, “If at any time you find it necessary to correct your brother, do not correct him with mud, or any account throw mud at him, because it will spoil his clothes.” Reading this line made me think of a little girl getting picked on and not defending herself because she was told to obey what others told her. “If your mother tells you to do a thing, it is wrong to reply that you won’t…” this sentence was in paragraph five.
Is detention effective or not? Personally in my opinion I believe it’s both effective and not effective. Detention is not something to reward a child with for being disruptive and obnoxious. Detention is for disciplinary uses; many kids think it’s okay to get detention because the teachers are so lenient and let them do things that they’re not supposed to do. A good thing about detention is it allows you to catch up on makeup work which helps you bring your grades up.
One day, in her lesson she shows some example of the advertisements. By showing examples from the advertisements to her students, Katherine showing that they were imposed only on being good housewives. She tells them that only being a good mother and wife role are admitted. Girls are influenced by her warnings. Betty while she was the most hostile to her, she regrets that she did and decides to organize her life according to her wishes and choices rather than her parents.
Why are you upset today? She replied: “something bad happened in my family and my mum always say your brain doesn’t work.” Me and Mrs Rees looked each other and then Mrs Rees said: “It’s not like that and you better pay attention to the lesson and show her how quick you can learn everything.” I said: “I believe that you are very clever. Now come and sit next to me. If you are stuck or straggle I will help you.” R is a dissociable girl, but I noticed when she participate in a group her works are better. Also I noticed that how encouraging words are effective.
Sula makes a huge tragedy that may have compromised their friendship and the entire town’s relationship or does it. Sula was written by Toni Morrison. A good mother is nurturing care for the child and love, but it is not necessarily giving birth. Being a good mother is nurturing care for a child. First of all, the meaning of a good mother from the book Sula is nurturing care for the child.
She can talk to other adults she knows, perhaps Atticus. She needs to talk to somebody, and figure out a way to get out of this situation. 2. Explain how a character is acting and why you think the character is acting that way. Scout is acting out at school; she nearly starts a fight with a classmate (Cecile Jacobs), after Cecile said “Scout Finch’s daddy defends niggers”.
