Josh turns into an alley and jumps out. The man in the rusty truck jumped out also, he was the man that Josh had purchased the hat from. Josh asked him, where does the map lead to? And he said, to an Indian Chief’s gravesite. They go to a park and look for caves, Josh felt dajavo.
Life Lessons From Atticus Finch “Atticus was feeble: he was nearly fifty…we felt (this) reflected upon his abilities and manliness (118).” Scout says this about her father in the novel, To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee. At the beginning of the novel, Atticus Finch’s children, Jem and Scout, do not fully understand their father’s unique and honorable qualities. Atticus is the furthest thing from feeble and weak. He is one of the wisest, bravest and most empathetic characters in the book. Jem and Scout eventually learn the truth about their father as they watch him deal with some very difficult circumstances in the prejudiced, southern town of Maycomb.
The simple fact that he walks into the room with a “short cigar” in his mouth gives the reader the image of a rough and tumble Drill Sergeant. Furthermore, the reference of going under the grade school where they went in case of attack gives the reader the image that Coach Hill is leading his troops into a bunker to avoid an attack. Finally, lines 18-24 describe a scene where Coach Hill “made two lines of us / facing each other” (ll. 198, 19) which is clearly a military reference. Coach Hill’s actions and intentions are clearly different from Mrs. Lawrence’s. At the beginning of the poem The Schoolroom on the Second Floor of the Knitting Mill, the reader gets sense that the narrator, a former student, misses her former teacher Mrs. Lawrence.
We spoke to Robert John Major, a researcher who dove deeply into the events of the My Lai Massacre and why they happened. He told us “as the details of the whole massacre aren’t shocking enough, when I truly fleshed through all the information we had of the events and went deeper, I came across stories one couldn’t make up. An example of one of the atrocious events was on 17th March, the day after the massacre, the guides were still in the village when a small boy, who had manage to hide under his Grandmother’s clothes and dodge any gun shots, climbed out of a mountain of bodies. One of the soldiers
In the second chapter after his grandfather died he was broke down and sort of going crazy because he had lost his best friend. Then in the third and fourth chapter he transformed and went to the orphanage to find clues concerning his grandfather’s life. Another brave and heroic event was when he went to meet the headmistress. In the passage it says “They walk up the solid steps that lead to the porch. Emma and Millard want to take Jacob to meet the headmistress.” I think this is heroic because Jacob doesn’t know what to except as he waits to go in the meeting and he’s is very young.

For instance if a teacher tells a seven year old that he/she is dumb and can’t do anything besides a line leader then the child will take that seriously, and think that it’s true. In the nonfictional article, “Preparing Minds for markets”, written by Jonathan Kozol, he mentions that children in elementary school are getting jobs and are assigned certain things to do and they are expected to pick their future career. For example, I remember when I was in kindergarten we were all assigned a job as if it was line leader hall monitor etc… but as Kozol mentions, “Starting in kindergarten children in school were being asked to think about the jobs that they might choose when they grow up. The posters that surround them made clear which kinds of jobs they were expected to select” (Kozol, 331). That makes the children feel like that will be their job in the future and they are still young and should have a lot of time to think about the kind of job they want, and not decide when they are in
Claire had lived through the war too and still cursed the Germans so many years later. Josef’s father died when he was only two and Helena rarely talked about him. She only said that he had been a brave man and helped people during the war. When sixteen-year-old Josef came home that day, he saw his mother talking to Claire in the kitchen. Helena greeted her son, “What did you study today?” she asked.
We were finally released for recess and I decided to see how Scout was doing. I snuck away from the safety zone of my fifth grade peers to where the first graders were huddled. I pulled Scout away from them and asked her how her day was coming along. She was very upset about how her new teacher had been teaching them. By the way she made her teacher out to be I would’ve assumed she was the devil if I didn’t know how mellow dramatic my sister could be.
Thus, to kill a mocking bird would be a wicked and spiteful, a senseless and pointless act of destruction. It is a metaphor meaning to not hurt someone without reason, to think about what you are doing, for a lot of the time, we humans often do act upon no reason, and result in doing the incorrect thing. Atticus makes another very good point to Scout, when she is angry with her teacher. “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view — until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” So what Atticus is teaching Scout, is that if she is able to do what he said, it will make
