This blog is for the use of 8th grade students to share and improve their writing. The students will respond to novel discussions and will choose topics of interest to blog about and I will moderate and administrate their posts. Our goal is to share our voices with an authentic audience who will provide us feedback on our thoughts. We hope you enjoy our work!

" Walking In Other Skin" "To Kill A Mockingbird"
To Kill A Mockingbird
“To Kill A Mockingbird” by Harper Lee. “To Kill A Mockingbird” is a story about loyal family who lives a unfair life just for defending a black man at a trial. The story takes place in Maycomb, Alabama which is one of the most tedious towns in America. The town is full of prejudice people and the town goes berserk every time something is involved with a black man. “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it” this is a quote from “To Kill A Mockingbird” which means never judge someone you don't know, when you live the life they're living then you judge them. There is an abundance of judging and prejudice in that town. The prejudice in that town killed an innocent black man named Tom Robinson. Tom got accused for something he did not do. That quote pretty much summarizes the whole story because that’s all there is in this town is judging and being prejudice. I think the book was tremendous but life was very unfair for Colored people and the Finch family. I think that atticus is a hero because he tried his hardest to prove Tom innocent. Atticus even took lots of cruel name calling and even got spat on but still held his temper. Knowing that if Atticus defended this man he was going to face many problems, thats a HERO!!
