But people are blind to see the actual message of the book and instead, looking at a few words in the book that seem offensive. Books like To Kill A Mockingbird and The Giver these books are banned because of some people think it’s not good for students to read it. But some of them are just banned for the craziest reasons like just for one thing the book has one bad word in it. Some people just make up so that there kids don’t have to read it. Like they say this book is going to teach my child to jaywalk, but jaywalking happens all the time and adults do it and kids just copy it not from a book.
Both parents wanted to see their children become successful, but they took different routes to achieve this. Mark was given the expectations of attending school and trying his hardest to succeed in life. He was a rebellious young man who believed schooling was pointless. His mom finally forced him to attend school by tying him up and carrying him there. Mark’s mom did this because she couldn’t stand thinking about Mark becoming like his father.
This game showed a physical type of courage for the kids because they were afraid of Boo Radley, so it took a lot of courage to try to get him out of the house. When it didn’t work, they didn’t give up; they had a second wind of courage and tried to pass him a note to talk to him, instead of getting him to come out. Playing this game was also courageous moral wise because they knew it was wrong and they shouldn’t be doing it but did it anyway, due to the fact that they didn’t want Atticus to find out they were playing. The kids don’t want to upset Atticus or have him disappointed in them, which seems to go on for a cause of most of their courageous acts. In chapter 6 we begin to see just how courageous Jem really is.
He doesn’t want to spend time with scout anymore, and he worries for others, like Atticus. For example, when the meen come to their house, Jem thinks that they are gang members, and he fears they’ll hurt Atticus.”They were after you weren’t they,” and “It wasn’t a gang?,” is what Jem asked Atticus. These quotes show us how he worried and cared about others. He was more attentive than what he used to be. Another example is the Tom Robinson Trial.
School shootings include: the shooter and the victims. There are many causes for these shootings to occur, for example: “revenge, bullying in schools, they simply do not value life, physical abuse at home by parents or any other member of the family, mental problems, they drink or use drugs, and because they are afraid of their own safety.” (Why Do Shootings Occur?) Researchers think that another reason for school shootings is related to American culture, beliefs of masculinity, and power or control. Children definitely does not have the complete fault, the shooters only have been part of it because parents should be attentive where they keep their guns, if they are within the reach of children or if the know about it. “Parents should take care about their children, teach them what is good and bad, or what they should do or not; increase their esteem and show them the value of life.” (School Shootings: How to Empower Against Guns) And before these cases happen they should teach their children need to react in these circumstances or emergencies.
Lesson plans often incorporate activities which are fun and interesting but linked to the learning objective, therefore hooking the children’s imagination so they become motivated to take part. Ultimately we are trying to motivate children so they remain engaged, focused and on task so they complete activities and achieve the desired learning outcome. Young people and children are
Because of the state of mind of Rob Jr., he did not know whom to believe, he was torn between the wraths of hell and his parents. Rob Jr., sincerely believed that he would end up in the ‘eternal fires’ of hell, he felt compelled to stay because he did not want to be thrown in the fires of hell. Because of the brainwashing, Rob Jr. believed Mr. Marsden and decided to stay, which constituted assumed false imprisonment. Because of the confusion caused Rob Jr., by Mr. Marsden, the church held him against his will and the will of his parents. Also, the church did not allow Rob Jr. to see his parents.
To Kill a Mockingbird How it relates to today To Kill a Mockingbird relates to today in quite a few ways, but there are definitely ways that it does not relate to today. There are some things that will never change that maybe should though. There have been many changes in society since the book was written, but not everything was changed. Kids act the same as they used to; they get into fights because of their parents opinions and what they say. There are some parents, from the story and now, that are not good role models for their kids.
Finally, competing involves a lot of pressure, which unconsciously makes kids focus only on winning. Although the thought of victory is very important for people to succeed, in children it might have bad effects, once kids don’t have enough body capability and are not yet mentally ready to handle this pressure. Therefore, youngsters should concentrate on developing their skills such as teamwork, coordination and fitness, which in the future will enable them to be good competitors Competing between the ages of six and twelve can harm children mentally. Parents who place their desire of winning into children can make them become discouraged and depressed because their physical and psychological development is inappropriate to compete (Statsky 390). Although the chance of getting hurt is very rare, the fear of getting injured can make children overreact by simulating fake incidents such as making themselves to vomit to convince the coach their stomach hurts (Statsky 389).
Not only does Holden’s dream career show his attempt to preserve innocence, but the “f--- you” signs in the school and museum does also. “I thought how Phoebe and all the other little kids would see it, and wonder what the hell it meant, and then finally some dirty little kid would tell them- all cockeyed, naturally- what it meant, and how they’d all think about it and maybe even worry about it for a couple of days” (201). The quote shows how Holden wanted to avoid the kids seeing the awful language that was written on the wall because the “perfectness” of their naïve world could be tainted. “You can’t ever find a place that’s nice and
