A collaborative project between Canadian and American secondary schools
Hello my name is Tasha. I love to draw and play sports; my hobbies are jogging and reading. I want to be a presentational cook and some day be a secondary owner of a restaurant. My family consists of my brother, two sisters and my dad. Only I my dad and brother live together, along with our pets; cats and a dog. I love to kick back with my friends on weekends and go cruising and just have a hell of a time. I am very open-minded to every aspect of life and have no certain religions or beliefs.
Hello, my name is Jasmine. I perfer Jazzy.I am 15 years old. I love to write and eat. YUM YUM YUM :D i'm very open-minded and honest. I love to have a good time and chill. I love to be with friends and learn new things. I like meeting new people and making new friends.
Hi Jazzy, nice to meet you. What kind of stuff do you write? I love to write too, I've writen two books (hoping to get published) and have 13 books started but I dont have the patience and usually start another story before I finish the one im working on. The stories i write are horror and i also write poems, but doesnt everyone? I also have a boyfriend named Christopher and a cat named Oddball.
I love holloween and rite now im just wasting time trying not to be bored. So I decided to write about anything that comes to mind. My friend shauna who's sitting next to be is weird and just sent a very lond message about nothing, I wonder if that kid shes talking to is in your class. If so then I apologize for her cause i dont think she relizes how weird she really is.
haha. I write about anything really. and I've writen two books as well. I usually do the same thing and start another book if I haven't finished the one I'm working on. I have a boyfriend as well. He's name is Casey. It's almost been a month. I don't know if the kid is in my class lol.
I think the book "The Mocking Bird" is a good book and is very interesting so far. I would think that someone becomes an outsider because they are different and this wolrd is scared or uneasy about people that are different. When people are scared they become closed minded and dont see that everyone in the world are equel no matter what way they live there life or what religion or nationalitie they are. What do you think about how people become an outsider
What I think about people becoming an outsider? Well i think that it's a common thing. I think mostly the same thing you think. A lot of people become scared and they turn out to be completely different people.
people were rasist
You should blog about somthing we can talk about for awhile cause i got nothin.
very good jazzy!
I agree. =))ANGEL STARR
The answers are good. Jasmine, you should expand upon the answers instead of agreeing with tasha. Both of you need to do personal reflections between the book and your life.
Evaluation:I think you two understand the concept of the novel, but I think that you guys should relate to the book more and tell some experiences you have had, like the ones in the book. I also think that you should explain your answers more. I gave you both a one for 'self-reflection'; 'connections to novel, self, and world'; and contribution to learning.
I Agree with Tarrin.. Maybe try and relate some of your discussions with your personal lives or past experiences. Tasha you started your posts off good especially about the outsider. Therefore I will gove you a 3.Taylor.
I think the book is great so far. It's very interesting and has a lot of events that are very possible to happen in real life. Lecrecia, I don't know something that we could talk about for a while. What do you like most about To Kill a Mocking Bird?
I think if Harper Lee wrote this book as an adult telling the story it wouldn’t be as good as it is now. The way is seems with a kid telling it makes it more real to me. The little things that a child mind goes threw is told in the story, how they see things at the time.
I agree with you. I like the book. It's very realistic when there's a kid telling the story. How do you feel about in chapter 4 or 5 when Atticus made a deal with Scout? If Scout continued to go to school, Atticus would continue to read to Scout.
I think its a good deal. It teaches Scout that she has to learn at school if she wants to learn from anything els, Atticus is very wise to make this agreament. I also like how Scout wants him to read to her.
I believe some examples of Jem’s coming of age is like how Campania calls Jem Mister Jem and how he now read the newspaper, spends time alone, doesn’t hang with Scout as much and how he has more authorities on the home
oops wrote wrong name ignore it
I believe some examples of Jem’s coming of age is like how Calpurnia calls Jem Mister Jem and how he now read the newspaper, spends time alone, doesn’t hang with Scout as much and how he has more authorities on the home.
Conversation evaluation.I think you guys give lots of examples to the book, so I give you a 2.5 in connection to learning; but a 2 in self relating. For the contribution to learning, i give you all a 3.5 because you all told the facts and answered your blog.
Hello. My name is Sarah M. I'm 15 and a sophomore at Central. I'm really involved with showchoir and I play the piano. In this part of the book I sort of feel bad for Scout because Jem is starting to grow up and she's not ready for that yet. And at the same time Aunt Alexandra shows up and is expecting her to act like a lady. Meanwhile she's going through a lot of drama due to the court case with Tom Robinson. What do you think?
Hi im Eric and I'm in another Mrs. Johnson's english class. I think that Scout is just now developing another character trait from all of this. It seems to me she is developing the idea of that she needs to start or begin growing up or "coming of age." All of these occurances in the book just let u keep building your own image of her and whats going on around her.
To carry on your conversation, I do believe that Scout is developing into a great character as well. We see her mature throughout the novel, but towards the end she changes. I think a crucial part of her growing up was when Aunt Alexandra started making great impressions upon her such as- telling her to joy with their tea group- making her change clothesand much more!FOR MY FINAL POSTING:The most important events in the novel, were- the trial- Aunt Alex coming- going to the "black church"- seeing Mrs. Dubose pass awayI believe all these happenings were important, because of the result of these actions. In the trial, the reader learned about the case, and how it affected the community.Aunt Alexandra's position in the household make a great impact upon Scout in maturing, and this is depicted throughout the novel.Going to the black church was important also. It tied in with the Tom Robinson case, as well as visiting the black community. In this scene, the readers were revealed secrets about Calpurnia. Lastly, seeing Mrs. Dubose leave her will behind and make her transition created a great lesson. The kids took away ideals, as well as making her last moments worthwhile. To the kids, seeing her wasn't much, yet it was important for Mrs. Dubose. Dealing with her morhpine addiction was tough, yet she passed away with strength and courage which was evident to the kids shortly after.
Eric, I agree with your statement that Scout is starting to think she needs to grow up. I especially notice this at the end of chapter 24 when it says "After all, if Aunty could be a lady at a time like this, so could I."Focus 8 Extension:I think important points in the novel so far are... -when Atticus tells Scout to see things from other's perspective. -when Jem, Scout, and Dill try to give Boo the note-Scout and Francis's fight-the gang at the prison-the verdict of the court caseI think out of these events the verdict of Tom Robinson is the most significant turning point. After the verdict most of the tension in the town dies down and the book is ending. I also think it's important because Jem starts to realize a lot about life and how it's not fair and the case really left an impact on.
