When people’s azaleas froze in a cold snap, it was because he had breathed on them. Any stealthy crimes committed in Maycomb were his work.” p.9 The young characters have an initial interest in the mystery of Boo and begin to obsess about it by attempting to communicate with Boo, and make a game out of the rumours that circulate about the Radley family. This curiosity fades by the end of the texts as they actually meet Boo himself. Jem and Scout both show signs of growing up, understanding that Boo isn’t harmful at all. For example, in the novel when Scout discovers the stranger who saved her was Boo, Harper Lee uses language and points within the narrative structure to show how Scout’s previous
One can only imagine what antics a student known as “Crazy Eddie” would engage in. Also, obviously an eight-year-old boy is not capable of really loving the teacher, but McManus highlights Muldoon’s desire to gain her approval by emphasizing how he “became the champion of our weekly spelling bees” (2) in order to have her “pin a ridiculous little paper star on the front of his shirt” (2). Here, McManus creates the humorous image of a little boy studying really hard for the silly reward of a “paper star,” as opposed to something more substantial and worthwhile. In the end, Muldoon’s effort to please the teacher, ironically, results in her leaving the school. Perhaps with hindsight, he should have realized that a garter snake and a mass of squirming worms do not have the same effect as an adorable cat and kittens.
On his shop class, one senior student decided to make fun of the teacher instead of the freshmen. On his Advance English class, he is harassed by his classmates but befriends his English teacher, Mr. Anderson (Paul Rudd).

Nothing happens to the WITHOUT PUNISHMENT Group if they make a mistake though sometimes Professor Psycho mutters loud enough for the students to hear that they are just so dumb. Both Groups complete the same problems, but the PUNISHMENT GROUP has to complete the experiment at 2 am when Professor Psycho returns from a heavy night of clubbing. The WITHOUT PUNISHMENT Group completes the problems at 9am. To Professor Psycho’s surprise the average score of the WITHOUT PUNISHMENT GROUP is better than the WITH PUNISHMENT GROUP. He never bothered to tell his classes of his results.
My younger brother Ken (age thirteen) and Taylor, went for the already established games of basketball and dodgeball with a group of kids they made friends with. Matthew making up his own games and Taylor games that require high motor skills are both stage appropriate actions. This brings me to the social/emotional side of things. At one point during the day Taylor was picking on Matthew for being a kiss-up to their parents and Matt responded by kicking, punching, and screaming at him. This was typical of Taylor who's age group sees increased sibling rivalry, but a little premature of Matt who's physical aggression is supposed to be lessening.
He is the one who introduces the concept of phoniness. It starts with Holden telling the readers that he was yet again being kicked out of another school, this time for failing four out of his five courses. Holden could easily pass, but he refuses to do the work. Pencey is a good school, but Holden can only focus on the phoniness of the school and the students. Pencey’s ad says that they have been “Molding boys into splendid, clear-thinking young men” (2).
In grade 1, he started to being verbally bullied and was told to do things he didn't want to do by the year 6 students, such as swearing in Arabic at the nuns who run the school, pulling his pants down in front of the teachers, skinny dipping during the swimming carnival and so much more. He couldn't stand it, and he
Their father, Bully, pats them on the shoulder and laughs along with them, proud that one day, his sons will be just like him. William Golding's novel Lord of the Flies answers the question asked by many school officials and parents alike: When, if ever, does teasing and goading cross the line into bullying? Through the misfortunate adventures of Ralph, Jack, Piggy, and the other boys on the island, it is revealed that teasing and goading turns into bullying the moment the victim starts feeling powerless. According to Tara L. Kuther's article "Understanding Bullying", the bully and victim relationship blooms from an "imbalance of power" where the victim finds it hard to "defend him-or herself" (Understanding Bullying 51). Once the Victim feels belittled, the line separating teasing and bullying becomes crossed.

As a teacher, Lewis witnesses the collective bullying of one of the new boys, Paul Fry. And although he tries his best to help the poor little Paul Fry, by telling the headmaster and taking notes of what he has seen for instance, he fails to do so. The headmaster brushes what Lewis tells him off by saying that maybe Lewis is exaggerating, and that he might want to consider taking some time off, as his wanting to help Paul Fry has become quite an obsession, just as Anna had stated before him (see page 4, second paragraph). When, on the following day, Paul Fry is found dead (page 4, line 120-122). The incident obviously has a huge impact on Lewis, making him move back home to the countryside where he used to live with his mother.
