To Kill a Mockingbird Racism
The book To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee addresses the wrathful way the whites treated blacks also known as racism. Racism was not inconspicuous problem until the Civil Rights Movement. This book shows how black people in the south would be treated badly. In the book To Kill a Mockingbird Tom Robinson, a black worker in the south, was charged with rape of a white woman. Tom Robinson was probably falsely charged and will probably be put in jail. Atticus Finch is trying to keep the postponement court case postponed so Tom Robinson can have more time free outside jail. This book shows that white people segregate blacks by making them live in their own district, white people would call blacks degrading and angry names. In this book Calpernia, a black women, is the Finch’s worker, but unlike most blacks, Calpernia was treated with respect. Calpernia at most times is even more human and more considerate than Atticus, some reasons why she are whenever Scout or Jem come for advice she always has wisdom to share. During the time that this book takes place a black person was not considered as important or civilized as white people and were looked down upon. In Maycomb, a small town in Alabama, Black people are given the worst jobs like garbage man, which Zeebo is. . These are the ways that this book addresses racism during the 1930’s.
I liked this project and enjoyed it greatly. The purpose of this webpage was to share my work at Stevenson with the world. Another purpose of this Weebly page is for me to reflect on my work. The part that I managed to do well was keeping all of my projects organized. The most difficult part was finding all of the errors that I had in my writing. I learned how easy it is to create a website on Weebly.
This project was a metaphor that I was assigned to make at the beginning of the year about eighth grade. I had the most fun finding the picture for this project. The hardest part was probably thinking of what my metaphor would be. I learned that making a metaphor is much harder than it seems.
Eighth grade is a boxing match because you need boxing gloves and training to win the fight. The training is past experiences in school. The boxing gloves are the tools you use to win the fight, like paper, pencils, and your brain. These are the reasons why school is like a boxing match
This project was based on the novel that Charles dickens wrote named A Christmas Carol. For my project based on A Christmas Carol I made a movie with Jack, Brett and Drew. The most fin part was watching the finished movie with my partners. The hardest part was probably staying focused and on task for seven hours straight during filming.
The "This I Believe" project was an essay about a certain event in my life that reeked with real life experience. For my essay I wrote about a memory I had with some friends while we were camping. I had the most fun writing this essay was remembering camping and hanging out with my friends. The hardest part of this project was at the very beginning when I had to decide what to write about. I learned that I have done something really important atleast once in my life while writing t
This is a story about a close encounter at Big Sur. Big Sur campsite is a campsite in a forest of red wood trees at least one hundred feet tall light flows through the trees like rays of purity.
I was eleven back then when I used to go to Big Sur every summer. I would go to Big Sur with the Grech family and the Catania family. One year Aaron, Giuseppe, and I were just riding our bikes around when we saw a dirt jump and were too tempted to avoid it, but being the boys we were, we went on it. I peddled, coasted, and flew. We all did the jump and flew through the air proving that homosapians can fly. After about an hour or so saw a group of kids following us ,but I ignored them.
About another hour or so later, they were still following us, so I told Aaron and Giuseppe and they agreed with me that they were creeping us out.
Later in the night after we had our hamburgers and hot dogs, we decided to go to the basketball court. We walked past the ice cold crystal clear river, we walked on the old decaying log that looked like the body of a dead dragon, and we walked past a lumbering giant called a tree. When we arrived at the basketball court, we were engulfed in the smell of smoke from smoldering campfires. The kids had followed us to the basketball court off their bikes, and approached us angrily. They had a I-am-going-to-kick-you looks on their faces. The smoke seemed to thicken with every light breath. They challenged us to a fight, and Giuseppe approached them getting ready to pulverize them. They looked like male lions aggressive but were lazy and slow. They numbered in the tens of thousands ,and we numbered at three. I was a quick diplomat ,and I asked them what their problem was, they told us that we went on their ramp. We approached each other like post-apocalyptic cannibals. I told Giuseppe that he should not fight because there was no point. Aaron and Giuseppe walked away from the fight with me ,and we avoided a lot of things such as bruises and a possible police record. I learned how to use self-control and leadership for the better that day.
The definition of leadership is the power to help others go in the right or wrong path, and the definition of self-control is the power to stay true to your own morals. I think that I exemplified both of these characteristic in this close encounter. I think that self control is important because it is the only way keep my life on track. My leadership has the potential to help others go down the right road. When I walked away from that fight, I learned how powerful leadership and self-control are. Hopefully this self control will help me stay on the right track , a lesson I learned during a close encounter at Big Sur
A Glogster is where an editor can create his or her own page and add whatever they want. The editor can put word documents, pictures, and even animated graphics.For the Glogster that I made, I used my sonnet as the poetry piece that I am most proud of. The part that I did well was how I designed my Glogster because I stayed with the zombie theme, which meant I could really be creative. I think the most difficult part of the Glogster was writing all the information about my sonnet. I learned that when I put my mind to something I can spend more than enough time finding the right theme for it.
(See Glogster section under L. Arts for Glogster page)
This project is a sonnet. I wrote this sonnet about zombies. I think I chose the vocabulary for this sonnet well. I think the most difficult part was choosing words to make a ten syllable line. I think the most fun part was reading the finished project because I was impressed with what I had done.
He stares toward you tantalizingly
His stare soon becomes an angered dead glare
Dragging his aged dead body, hungrily
He does not want your money so beware
The closer he gets his moan becomes a roar
His objective is to feast without care
One place of safety will be on a tor
Once his screech is heard his kind won’t be rare
Their scream they let out was bloodcurdling
You will not want to be in a city
Their smallest problem will become breeding
They do not even give minute pity
They are not zombies, they’re cruel infected
They are here to be fed and respected
This project was made using Microsoft Photo Story. We made a photo story slide show of the book Whirligig by Paul Fleischman. I came up with the pictures that were used in the project well because I used humor to find comical and clever pictures. I think that the most difficult part of making this was getting the voice over on the slide show just right to match picture. I think the most fun was recording the project with my friends. I learned that working in a group makes doing a project much easier.
I was not able to get the Photo Story on this web page.
