Right now we are currently reading chapters 16 through 20 in To Kill a Mockingbird. One connection that I can make between my school, home and city is that we have a court house close to our city and we have crimes around here like they do it the book with Tom. A connection I can make from a conflict in my life from this book is that you cannot always believe what you hear. Also you have to treat everyone equally no matter what they look like or how they act. Scout is similar to my sister I believe because when we were little we would always be curious like they are and try to go to everything with are parents like they do when there dad is in the court room. I also believe this because sometimes she can be stubborn like Scout is in the book. This is the first book that I have read like this because usually I’m not that into books like this. One connection no one else has made in my circle is that Jem and Scout are like me and my family members because we like to be together when ever we can like they do during the summer Scout and Jem are always together. During our literary circle we discussed how we believe Mayella Ewell said “She says what her papa do don’t count.” We said that Mr. Ewell probably has gone farther than just kissing his daughter and probably beat her up when he say her kissing another guy and blamed it on Tom because he was there and didn’t even want to kiss her. We also discussed why we think Mr. Raymond pretends to be drunk but is really just drinking Coca Cola. We think he does this because he doesn’t want to have to deal with being questioned why he married a African American. To be part of the community in Maycomb I think it means that you have to be white and you do not like or talk to any African American more than you have to. This is because it is a much separated town and white people live on one side and black on the other side. This also shows how much our country has changed because now there might still be some racist people but we are all together and everyone can talk to each other.
