Right off the bat one can assume that a girl’s camp would be for anything but a physical training camp. Possibly the motive could be to mature rude and disrespectful youth or teach manners and etiquette. The story would probably have snobby and stuck-up girls as the main group of characters being sent by their parents to the camp for help. One would picture the girl’s counselors as being more caring and understanding, compared to the immature and careless counselors in the boy’s camp. For example when Goodenow fails his attempt to drown himself in the “tank” the artificial lake, the book mentions the counselors and spectators not caring at all and just poking fun.
They helped her become more out spoken like how you see her with Rudy and her relationship later in the book. With Liesel and Hans it was a bit different. He was warm and kind from the first day. He didn’t say anything about her not taking a bath, he understands that she was in an unfamiliar place and it can be frightening for a young girl, especially after everything she has been through. He understood that she needed time to mend and when she was ready she would open up.
(This isn’t a text response essay, but think of him noticing the shape of the poisoned child’s skull; consider him pondering the ease with which the blacks found the food they needed yet still had time to play with their children. Think of your own prejudices and be honest about them. I’m not going to confess my own here, but I had to bite down on a racist reaction to a woman who won a lot of money on Deal or No Deal during the holidays. BTW, speaking of dumb, I’ve only watched it once in my life – my son had to explain how it worked – and I was recovering from flu.) Given who Thornhill was, and his lack of opportunity in England, he couldn’t return.
When Atticus, Jem and Scout go to the family plantation for Christmas, she gets in trouble for beating up her cousin. Scout’s cousin calls Atticus a "Nigger Lover” so Scout hits him. Scout’s uncle comes outside and yells at her without listening to what she had to say. The injustice is Scout not being able to tell her side of the story. As the famous saying says “Assumed guilty until proven innocent”, this is the case for Boo Radley.
Paragraph 2- Curley's wife Talk about how she is always hanging around on the ranch, finding excuses to get out of the house. Contain references to the fact that she is the only woman on the ranch and that she is married to a man that she dislikes greatly. Refer to her being only just into her late teens. Mention how she, as well as crooks, opened up to Lennie because she was lonely. Also mention that she lied to herself and made herself believe that the man she met could really have put her in the pictures and that her mother had hidden the letters from Hollywood.
Josephine Alibrandi argues with her mother about her visiting her grandmother after school, her school behaviour, her mother’s personal life, her mother’s relationship with men other than her father and her own relationship with Jacob Coote. These are all the issues that teenagers express via arguments to their parents. Another association with adolescence is peer pressure. Throughout the novel, Josephine is pressured by her friends to do something which she believes isn’t right. An example of this is the walk-a-thon where Josephine is put in charge of taking care of the back of the group but she abandons her duty as her friends convince her into skipping school to meet a celebrity.
The Help Response Paper Through out the book there were many situations we’re groups are together, and divide. Individuals in “The Help” have either separated themselves form groups or learned to conform in them. When Mae Mobley was young she was never around adults because it was Aibileen’s job to take care of her. Aibileen always taught Mae Mobley about equality which will possibly make hard for her to be excepted in a group. Not because she unable to socialize, but because of the groups she’s around aren’t accepting of her learned beliefs.
Scout is amazed by the response of the townspeople after her father takes the case of Tom Robinson. Tom was accused of raping a white girl. After Attics takes the case children mock Scout and call Atticus, her father, a nigger lover. In addition, people that she has always thought of as good and friends show up at the house to make threats if Atticus continues to take the case. When she begins to recognize that Tom is innocent during the trial both she and her brother are shocked that he is found guilty.
Even though it is obvious that Mayella’s dad beat her and Tom is not guilty, the jury still convicts Tom Robinson because of his race. Some time after the trail, Boo Radley, the recluse who they used to bully, saves Jem and Scout from an attack from Mayella’s furious father. It is then when Scout grasps the lessons of her childhood, as taught to her by her father, Atticus. It is common knowledge that kids pick up their morals from their parents, and in the book, Harper Lee expresses that idea by implying that the
Not all the irony in the story was dark. When the family visited Red Sam's she spoke to Red Sam as an equal, despite his skin color being a red; a hint that he is Native American, Hispanic, or Indian. He treated her with the most respect of any character in the story. This is ironic because while she was traveling with the family she told stories about “a nigger boy” who ate the watermelon one of her suitors left her when she was young. So we, the audience, can assume she is racist in the way most older people are racist.
