What connection might there be between what is required of Atticus to shoot the mad dog and what is required of him to defend Tom Robinson?
Posted 10/25/2010 at 1:39:24 PM by [anonymous visitor]
he wants to protect his family and his kids

i agree that Atticus had to kill the dog but He also talks about how If he doesn't do the right thing it will kill him. In how would he expect his kids to do the right thing if he didn't.
Posted 10/25/2010 at 1:39:03 PM by [anonymous visitor]
he wasnt trying to protect the black man he is helping him.
Posted 10/20/2010 at 1:38:52 PM by [anonymous visitor]
I Think he shot the dog because he knew he was the only one who can do it and with tom he knows that he is the only one who can defend him
i think everyone has good replies

to Retha I agree with you that he wanted to protect his kids I also beleive that he is doing the right thing by defending tom.
Posted 10/19/2010 at 12:36:45 PM by [anonymous visitor]
He wants to make sure the town is safe. He knows that Tom Robinson is innocent
Posted 10/18/2010 at 12:36:28 PM by [anonymous visitor]
he had to do something that he didn't want to do but had to.
Posted 10/18/2010 at 12:36:17 PM by [anonymous visitor]
I agree with Kenney too I think he wanted to protect his family:)
Posted 10/15/2010 at 12:36:05 PM by [anonymous visitor]
I think there is connection between Atticus shootig the mad dog and defending Tom Robinsin. I agree with Retha in the fact That Atticus wanted to do the right thing by defending Tom. He also was protecting the town and family by shooting the mad dog so he did the right thing there too.

i dont think he neccessarily did it for his kids to kill the dog. i think he did it for the fact that the dog was probably suffering too so he knew that was whats best
Posted 10/14/2010 at 12:35:30 PM by [anonymous visitor]
I agree with Mikey
Posted 10/14/2010 at 12:35:19 PM by [anonymous visitor]
I think he wanted to kill him just for the sake of his families safe!
Posted 10/13/2010 at 12:34:58 PM by [anonymous visitor]
He wanted the town to be safe. He was required to prove Tom Robinson not guilty
Posted 10/13/2010 at 12:34:43 PM by [anonymous visitor]
I think it has to do with defending his kids and showing that its ok to have the right to do something for what you beleive in. Like how he is for Tom Robinson.

johnny- i dont understand what you're saying explain more
Posted 10/12/2010 at 11:51:40 AM by [anonymous visitor]
he wanted to make sure the town was safe
Posted 10/12/2010 at 10:02:17 AM by [anonymous visitor]
it is to get respect and his kids will look up to him . they will want to do the right thing some day
Posted 10/12/2010 at 10:02:06 AM by [anonymous visitor]
i agree with kenny he wanted to protect his family from the mad dog
Posted 10/12/2010 at 10:01:58 AM by [anonymous visitor]
it was to protect his kids
and he wanted to do the right thing by defending tom
Posted 10/12/2010 at 10:01:48 AM by [anonymous visitor]
the one the starts with "Atticus dignity" yea thats mine i forgot to write my name. sorry***
Posted 10/12/2010 at 10:01:27 AM by [anonymous visitor]
Atticus think he's doing the right think by defending him because it would kill him telling his kids he did'nt do the right think. Atticus Shooting the mad was what he did to protect his family and the right thing which he seem to do

i dont understand!!!!---Jacqui
Posted 10/12/2010 at 10:00:57 AM by [anonymous visitor]
he had to shoot the dog. he had the best shot and it was up to him to protect Tom Robinson again and tokill the crazy dog. he also showed off a little to his kids and wife. that has to be my favorit part of the book.
Posted 10/11/2010 at 7:58:09 PM by [anonymous visitor]
the connection between what is required of atticus to shoot the mad dog and protecting tom robinson is something he hasnt done in a long time and his dignity
Posted 10/11/2010 at 7:57:36 PM by [anonymous visitor]
That atticus has to do things that are for the great or good regardless of how he or anyone else feels.
Posted 10/11/2010 at 7:57:15 PM by [anonymous visitor]
i think that he needed to shoot the dog to show that he has what it takes to take care of his kids.
Posted 10/11/2010 at 7:56:36 PM by [anonymous visitor]
to protect his kids and their relationship amd to protect the black man

What will Boo Radley's role be in the novel? Why does he stay in his house? Will he ever come out?
Posted 10/8/2010 at 2:42:27 PM by [anonymous visitor]
Yes summer boo house is the radley house and not boo's name is not realy boo.
Posted 10/8/2010 at 2:42:14 PM by [anonymous visitor]
Retha The fathers name is Atticus
Posted 10/8/2010 at 2:42:00 PM by [anonymous visitor]
I think that he will get out of the house
his brother doesn't want him getting out
Posted 10/8/2010 at 2:41:51 PM by [anonymous visitor]
Boo Radley just stays in the house
Posted 10/8/2010 at 2:41:45 PM by [anonymous visitor]
I agree with sophie
Posted 10/7/2010 at 2:43:15 PM by [anonymous visitor]
i think Boos postion in this book is to be hidden the whole time until you get closer to the ending. finally he will decide to come out of his house.
Posted 10/7/2010 at 2:42:58 PM by [anonymous visitor]
I Think that his real name is arthur and his nick name is boo
Posted 10/7/2010 at 2:42:48 PM by [anonymous visitor]
the guys in the house. it was his dad's, but now its his brother. yes i think so
Posted 10/6/2010 at 8:27:54 AM by [anonymous visitor]
Im confused is his real name Boo or Arthur?
Posted 10/6/2010 at 8:27:32 AM by [anonymous visitor]
Boo Radley's role in the book is a man who never leaves his house. He stayes in his house because he got in some trouble. He will never come out
Posted 10/6/2010 at 8:27:17 AM by [anonymous visitor]
who's ms. Maudie
Posted 10/5/2010 at 8:28:42 AM by [anonymous visitor]
Boo just stays in the house, because he thinks he can. And he only comes out when he messes with those kids, and leaves them "presents" on the tree.. those presents later on the story will probably interfer with some of the characters...
Posted 10/5/2010 at 8:28:06 AM by [anonymous visitor]
halle I dont really think that boo will ever harm the kids. he's propbably trying to make friends with them. i think that his brother maybe is the one trying to make boo is picture scary cause he cemented the tree so that he keeps his brother in the house at all time.
Posted 10/5/2010 at 8:27:45 AM by [anonymous visitor]
To Kenny I do agree that boo radley is not going ot come out because he stabbed his father I think he will stay in hiding and that the kids will never see him
retha ganim asked for the fathers name- Jacqui

Posted 10/4/2010 at 2:22:43 PM by [anonymous visitor]
he is a lonely man and is most likely to stay home alone for the rest of his life. he is so lonely because he has spent the last 15 years inside. I dont think there is any coming back from that one. he also probly isnt good with talking to other people. he is better off inside for the next 30 years.
Posted 10/4/2010 at 1:39:36 PM by Karyn Bernhardt [staff member]
Good thought Halle....I like that he is pretending to be someone else. I also agree, Huda, that he is kinda creepy, like a ghost.
Posted 10/4/2010 at 1:38:41 PM by [anonymous visitor]
Boo's role in the story might be to teach the kids a lesson in how to enjoy the little things in life. I think boo stays in his house because he doesnt want to cause trouble for people during the day. he might come out for the kids, if they're in danger or if he wants to meet them.
Posted 10/4/2010 at 1:38:19 PM by [anonymous visitor]
well he not come out because he stabbed his dad.
Posted 10/4/2010 at 1:38:07 PM by [anonymous visitor]
boo is definitely not his real name. people call him boo bc he appears after 15yrs like a ghost. anyway i think boo owns the house he lives in now and his brother is just living with him to take care of him.
Posted 10/1/2010 at 1:37:40 PM by [anonymous visitor]
I do think that boo radley is the owner of the house. I also think that he is going to do something to the kids. I think his name isnt really boo. I think it is just a disguised name and he has some other name that he dosnt want people to know what it really is.
Posted 9/30/2010 at 1:36:46 PM by [anonymous visitor]
I think boo is going to get killed by the kids (title) Boo stays in his house because his family wont let him leave the house because his father drove him to insanity.
Posted 9/30/2010 at 8:59:41 AM by [anonymous visitor]
Is Boo Radley the man that owns the Radley House? And is his real name Boo?
Posted 9/29/2010 at 1:55:07 PM by [anonymous visitor]
i think boo radleys roll will be the guy to teach the kids in town about life and the quiet one that doesn't really like children because he thinks they dont appreciate anything. so he will teach them.
Posted 9/29/2010 at 1:54:37 PM by Karyn Bernhardt [staff member]
The father's name is Atticus
Posted 9/29/2010 at 1:54:04 PM by [anonymous visitor]
So far the book is good
Whats the father's name?
Posted 9/22/2010 at 9:11:41 AM by Karyn Bernhardt [staff member]
With the title, To Kill a Mockingbird, what do you predict this book will be about?
Posted 10/5/2010 at 8:29:26 AM by [anonymous visitor]
Boo Radley is the owner of that house because he lives there and thats his familys house
Posted 10/4/2010 at 1:35:37 PM by [anonymous visitor]
this book is about a black man and how gets framed for rape, which he did not do. There is a good lawyer who helps this black guy out.
Posted 10/4/2010 at 1:35:03 PM by [anonymous visitor]
i am kinda getting the book not really i dont know what to do
Posted 10/4/2010 at 8:29:18 AM by [anonymous visitor]
hey mrs.barrett. i know u said not to post any for this one but I remember what i thought about the book befor we started it. i remember thinking it was going to be a scarey book about alot of killing that would go on when know one was around. peace out
Posted 10/1/2010 at 1:36:25 PM by [anonymous visitor]
im really not following this book. it is confuseing as anything i need help understanding this
i agree with alex kane
Posted 10/1/2010 at 1:36:05 PM by [anonymous visitor]
it kinda makes sense to me, but not totally
Posted 9/30/2010 at 8:59:32 AM by [anonymous visitor]
I agree with Alex to kill a mocking bird is going to be about racism and slavery.
Posted 9/29/2010 at 1:53:44 PM by Karyn Bernhardt [staff member]
Wow!!! Some really good thoughts. Huda...pretty deep thought there. I like the comparison. I am glad you all got on here. I think we may have some really good discussions. What do you think? Is it easy?
Posted 9/29/2010 at 1:52:20 PM by [anonymous visitor]
i think to kill a mockingbird will be about the a group a kids that learn about life and what the most important things are in life.
Posted 9/29/2010 at 1:52:00 PM by [anonymous visitor]
halle- i kinda agree with alex kane the book has to do withg racism. i think they're just comparing a mockingbird to colored people. mockingbirds dont do anything to people and colored people didnt nothing the whites. it's like pick on the one who is smaller than you.
Posted 9/29/2010 at 1:51:41 PM by [anonymous visitor]
To Tommy-yes to Kill A Mocking Brid is a good book but your suppose to say what you think the book is going to be about remember!!
Posted 9/29/2010 at 1:51:11 PM by [anonymous visitor]
I think this book is going to be about racism and for people to have equal rights.
Posted 9/29/2010 at 1:50:53 PM by [anonymous visitor]
To kill a mocking bird is about these 3 kids that go to school and work. But they live in poverty and they have nothing. It is telling about there life and what they do for fun.
Posted 9/29/2010 at 1:50:29 PM by [anonymous visitor]
i think to kill a mocking bird is about a girl that can read good.her teacher dosent like that she is a better reader them her. it talks about what she does.
Posted 9/29/2010 at 1:50:15 PM by [anonymous visitor]
To Alex to kill a mocking bird is not realy about slavery it is about segregation not realy slavery
Posted 9/29/2010 at 1:49:15 PM by [anonymous visitor]
The book is good so far.
Who's the father?
Posted 9/29/2010 at 8:59:23 AM by [anonymous visitor]
to alex- yea i think that it this book is about racism too.
Posted 9/27/2010 at 9:13:22 PM by [anonymous visitor]
to kill a mocking bird is a good book
Posted 9/27/2010 at 9:12:31 PM by [anonymous visitor]
to Halle- Remember the discussion the book is about racism.
Posted 9/27/2010 at 12:05:18 PM by [anonymous visitor]
i think its gonna be about killing the un-equal rights between blacks and whites
Posted 9/27/2010 at 12:05:05 PM by [anonymous visitor]
I think this book is about racism. How white people do the crime but blame it on the colored people because they didnt have any right back then. even if they confessed to their crime colored people would still be blamed
Posted 9/26/2010 at 12:05:29 PM by [anonymous visitor]
To kill a Mocking Bird IS About blacks not being equal to the other people in the world. All they want is to have the same right and privelages as white people.
Posted 9/24/2010 at 2:17:43 PM by [anonymous visitor]
I think that to kill a Mocking Bird it is about slavery, and racism.
Posted 9/23/2010 at 10:57:15 AM by [anonymous visitor]
I think to kill a Mockingbird is going to be about how people are killing Mockingbirds by destroying there habitats and there will be many arguments on if they should be allowede to destroy there habitats or not. Also to help the Mockingbirds by writing petitions to save them.
