That's not math. Ask the questions.
1.When Atticus decides to defend Tom Robinson. It was time of racial discrimination. Man members of the town feel Atticus should not defend Tom because he is black. Atticus is Threatened even harassed for being toms lawyer . Why this Conflict is important to the story? Has this conflict been resolved yet? Why or why not? How did this conflict affect you as a reader? Did it give you insight, change your perspective, help you form an opinion about characters, etc?
Did you read the book?
So you tell me, why is that conflict, that people want to pin a crime on a black guy, that they don't want Atticus to defend the black guy, important to the book?
well in the book i remember atticus telling scout if he did not defend this man, he could never tell Jem or her (Scout) not to do something. He has to set a good example for his children and if he expects them to do something or follow certain values, then he must display them first. In this case, he is displaying that everyone deserves a chance and that everyone is equal. He is also trying to make the town of Maycomb more accepted of this idea since this is a town of great discrimination. Even though he is only one man, he is hoping to cause a ripple effect and hoping that people will see the light and start believing that everyone is truly equal, no matter what their skin colour is. THe same reasons that Atticus defends Tom are what defines him as a lawyer and a person.
See, you didn't just find the one conflict. There are two. There's the racial/discrim conflict and the conflict of Atticus as a lawyer, and how his actions define his honor. You have it.
Has the conflict been resolved yet? What do you think?
BTW, there are no wrong answers. But you have to be able to explain your answer and justify it from the book. "Is this conflict resolved yet" isn't really about the book, though.
In my assignment i had to write a conflict like here is an example cat vs. dog i chose Atticus vs. Racism
Sure, that's good.
Or Atticus vs the Curse of Ham, or Atticus vs. fear, or Atticus vs. ignorance
Yeah those are good lol
You could also write Atticus vs the Townspeople...the townspeople represent fear and racism, or Atticus vs the Prosecutor, who represents fear and ignorance.
Writers have an intention of a moral theme when they write, but you might get something different from the story than the writer intended.
"Has this conflict been resolved yet? Why or why not?" What about that one?
i think the conflict has been resolved mr.ewell is dead but...then it really is not because Atticus couldnt prove that ewell was guilty in court so everyone can see what a lying dog he is, and tom can be a free man again
So you're taking the question as has the conflict been resolved in the book.
You can also take it as: is the conflict resolved yet in the world?
If I were you, I would ask the teacher if it means in the book or in the world. That one may not be open to interpretation, even though it really is. You can look at the question both ways, but the intention and thus grading may be only one way.
If you think Tom can be a free man, you didn't read the book. He was convicted and killed trying to escape. But you're on the money on ewell.
lol i know tom died from trying to esape from jail but if he didnt die then he would have been a free man and atticus could have proved that. it would have been a better ending to the story i think.
It would have been a cleaner ending to the story. But the real world isn't always clean.
Dulcinea in Man of LaMancha says "the world is a ball of dirt and mud, and we are the maggots crawling on it"
Don Quixote tells her the Knight's mission, to dream the impossible dream. That's the real world: finding the good among the crap. There is good and bad in everything.
Charles Manson is a convicted serial killer, a mad man, evil. But when he was young, before the crimes, he was a singer. He sang like an angel.
Now for the final question: How did this conflict affect you as a reader? Did it give you insight, change your perspective, help you form an opinion about characters, etc?
yea indeed i was amazed at how ignorant racist people are. And that in a town as crappy as maycomb there was one man who did what he believed in instead of following the towns people. He did what he thought was write and he did what he knew was best for his childeren spreading equality and love instead of ignorance and hate.
The world is full of evil, of racist people. Racism is from both the discriminators and the discriminated, from both the black and white people in context of the book. But, you hit on the deeper meaning, that in all that there's a guy like Atticus. There's honor, morality, guidance, clear thinking, strength.
You don't need help with this type of stuff, you are very good at seeing the meanings beneath the story.
Make sure your answers have the three act structure: here is what I will tell you, tell it, here is what I told you.
Each point you make, support it, as you did right here, with stuff from the book.
2. Man vs. Man When boo kills ewell the sheriff has to decide weather to lie, or arrest boo, but like scout said “arresting boo would have been like killing a mockingbird.” Why this Conflict is important to the story Has this conflict been resolved yet? Why or why not? How did this conflict affect you as a reader? Did it give you insight, change your perspective, help you form an opinion about characters, etc?
Why do you think it's important?
i think its important because arresting boo would be like sending a innocent man to jail.
If Tom had done what Boo did, would they arrest Tom?
Your answer, btw, is a good one.
But what conflict does it describe?
they probaly would have because it was the 1930s and towns people including the sheriff im sure was racist.
So one conflict there is how Tom was treated vs how Boo was treated Another, as you said, is the conflict of telling a lie vs telling the truth, when a lie is the right thing to do morally
What does that "killing a mockingbord" mean?
in the book atticus told jem. "Shoot all the bluejays you want if you can hit em but remember its a sin to kill a bluejay." when i read that quote i think of Mr.robinson. a innocent man not hurting no one just doing what mayella tells him to, get convicted for battery and rape thats absurd.
You have it. So convicting Boo or arresting him would be like killing the Mockingbird, arresting a guy who did no wrong.
I have to go eat my supper. You have it for that second set of questions as well.
What grade are you in?
im in 9th
There's hope for the future with young people like you.
lol I suppose so
Keep up the good work.
alright thank you :)
