Entry 1: The mob scene in front of Tom Robinson's jail cell
As I'm sitting by the jail cell, reading under the light, I hear four cars pull up. I look up and see them unloading in front of the jail. I know who they are. I've been expecting them. People start walking over towards me, and I know what they want, and it isn't me. They want Tom Robinson, and I'm in their way. I try to play it cool, but I'm nervous because I'm clearly outnumbered and unarmed. All of a sudden, out of the corner of my eye, I see Scout run out, Jem close behind. Scout starts talking really fast and all I think is why in the world are they here. Scout talks to Mr. Cunningham about his son Walter, and I can see the hatred leave his face. It turns out that Scouts surprise appearance has saved Tom and I from an angry mob and an unfortunate outcome.
Entry 2: Tom Robinson's Trial
Reflection: Through this assignment, I've learned how to look at different scenes through different people. From the book, we are only given the scene from Scout's point of view. In this assignment, I learned how to create multiple views on one scene. I also was able to explore different characters and try to understand why they were a certain way, by diving into their mind and writing from their point of view.
I think the reason Mr. Crook gave this assignment is to teach us how to look at one thing from multiple views. This assignment let me explore the thoughts that were not said, but inferred. By changing the person telling the story, it gives a whole new outlook on what is happening and how they feel. These feelings are not expressed in the book because Scout is the one telling the story. I enjoyed writing from other character's points of view, and developing a different kind of writing style for each one.
