An important symbol I think is the cruddy old house of the Radley’s. I think this stands for how there are people in the world that are different and who might seem like outcasts. From the parts about this topic I learned that the Radley’s are quite a bit different than the rest of the community. This should not mean that they are bad people, jus unique in they’re own way.
The author describes the Radley’s house in a way that I can relate to in my life. How the doors and windows are always closed, and the lawn and landscaping is un-kept sounds like houses I’ve seen. Also how the paint was once clean and crisp but is now peeling and dirty makes the seen more relatable.
One conflict is between scout and her teacher Miss Caroline. Scout had learned to read and write on her own, not ever being intentionally taught. The teacher thinks that this is a problem because everyone else in the class can’t. Scout goes through some tests to show she can actually do it. But over all, the teacher does not like her because she can read and write. This is a person to person or idea conflict, where it’s scout against Miss Caroline and her though that all first graders should not be able to read or write. This conflict was not all that intense to begin with. And it has not been solved yet.
The author creates emotion through how the characters are action and feeling. The tone in this section has moved around from excited to scared to sad to happy. I know this because it was how the characters were feeling at the time as an effect of what was happening as the conflict or plot.
If a character was with us here, I think they would act with good manners because they were raised that was by their housekeeper. And I think that they would talk with a southern accent because they are from Georgia.
Our group predicted that Mr. Radley had filled the whole in the tree for a reason. This is to stop Boo Radley from giving treats to Jem and Scout. I also learned that Boo is not all a bad creepy guy, like I said above. What I learned about the human experience is to not always write off somebody as a bad or creepy guy, but to get to know them and try to put your self in their shoes.
