In order to provide a valid argument, Davis needed to show the jury the grounds under which he believed the evidence presented was not credible enough to send him to the chair. His first support was the “rare” switch blade knife the boy used to stab his father. Davis was able to find the same exact knife at a pawn shop in the boy’s neighborhood for only $6. His second support was the train that passed during the time of the murder. The train is very loud and the jury determined that it would be very difficult for the old man who lived downstairs to hear the boy yell “I am going to kill you.” His third
Breanne Gray Characterization Paper October 24th, 2013 Period 9 A True Gentleman “He had announced in the schoolyard that day before that Scout Finch’s daddy defended n-words,” Cecil Jacobs (Lee 74). In To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus Finch plays the role of the protagonist who fights through Maycomb’s thick racism. Finch demonstrates a very strong sense of justice and teaches his children the same. No matter what the situation is he maintains his integrity. His character is so sterling in nature that he could have been boring or irritating if Harper Lee had not written him so beautifully and believably.

There's Chuck Gieg (Scott Wolf), the squeaky clean boy who only wants to please his demanding father and who becomes the narrator for much of the story (the film is based on the real Chuck Gieg's memoirs), Tod (Balthazar Getty) a tough kid with some hidden troubles, Frank (Jeremy Sisto) a boy with some problems of his own who has to deal with a truly unsavoury wealthy father, and Gil (Ryan Phillipe), a wimpy sort of character who's afraid of heights and can't climb the rigging. Lending a helping hand on board the ship are Sheldon's wife Alice (Caroline Goodall), who doubles as teacher and doctor, and the Shakespeare quoting English teacher McCrea played by John Savage. Setting sail from Connecticut, the disparate group of boys will learn the ways of the sea and hopefully some discipline along the way. Skipper Sheldon is a wise man who will often remind the boys about the art and dangers of sailing and how the ship is not a toy and only with teamwork will everyone succeed. "Where we go one, we go all" is the catchcry of the Albatross and it's a message that is instilled painfully into the young crew.

Dead Poet Society Literature is the base around which stands the intrigue in the film Dead Poet Society by Peter Weir and the principal focus in my response. Beside literature, I will also discuss the impact that this movie has had on me, as well as the bravery of one of my most favorite characters in this movie, Neil Perry. Dead Poet Society, is set in 1959 at Welton Academy a private school for boys where the student are forced to follow the path traced by their families and have no other choice but to succumb to the school’s strict discipline and rigorous education. But for one lucky class this is rapidly going to change after Professor Keating joins the school. Keating is your untypical cool and easygoing teacher a teacher every student, I included, would love to have, because in his class, not only do you learn about literature and poetry, but also and more importantly about passion, courage, romanticism and concepts like the importance of freedom & following one’s dream regardless of the obstacles that come your way, while actually enjoying class time and performing original & entertaining activities, like for example; tearing out the literature's book introduction pages, which defined poetry as a science or learning poem’s tones walking in the schoolyard, or even reciting poem verses when shooting football balls.While I was watching this movie, aside from being entertained, I also caught myself learning from Keatings teachings about concepts like literature alongside the boys, and witnessing the boys development through story because of those teachings.
