- Perspective: Scout Finch
Three words to explain my school day. I hated it. I never want to go back anywhere near the classroom and especially Miss Caroline. She is not teaching the class right. I was out at recess with Jem and Jem told me that Miss Caroline is trying a new way of teaching. Well, that new way of teaching is dumb. Miss Caroline made me feel bad that I knew how to read and Atticus taught me. She also had the austerity to give Walter a quarter for lunch and even make him pay her back the next day. Walter will never be able to pay her back, let alone trying to get it back tomorrow. The Cunningham's take no money from others because they know they won't be able to pay back the debt. I tried to inform Miss Caroline on their situation to help her out but all she did smack my hand with a ruler out of frustration. I hate school.
Entry 2: Atticus and the Mad Dog
This project sums up one of the many life lessons that Atticus taught his children, Jem and Scout. "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view; until you climb into his skin and walk around in it." (Lee 39) Looking through an event through someone else's eyes can crucially change the way you think of things. It can persuade to change your opinion on the situation and let you gain more knowledge on the situation. Each and every one of the people of the town will have a different opinion on some events like the trial, Bob attacking the children and what Boo is doing staying in the house for years. I learned from this assignment that how much more I can learn just by expanding from looking through my eyes, but one, two or even more other perspectives. This will help me learn and become a better person through situations in life. Considering things from another point of view, it's that simple.
