Sheila's insight:

I think Scout would love the sport soccer. She is very active and it would be a great way to get her energy out and make summers very enjoyable. She must have some type of athletic gene since Jem plays football.

Sheila's insight:

This song talks about the small town feel that is so important in To Kill a Mockingbird. Scout talks a lot about the way that the people who have been in the town for the longest have the most power. This is a cycle that may never end in many small towns, it will go round like a "Merry Go Round."

Sheila's insight:

Goldilocks, from Goldilocks and the Three Bears has a lot in common with Scout. Both are very curious young girls who snoop around a house. In Goldilocks' case she gets chased out by the bears and in Scouts case she gets caught by her father.

Oh

Sheila's insight:

The poem Oh by Dr. Seuss is related to Scout in many ways. It talks about any young child's expectations for life, before they lose a lot of their innocence. At the beginning of the book Scout probably thinks that she can be whatever she wants when she grows up, but in reality she will most likely stay in Maycomb like everybody else. However, if anyone from Maycomb was going to go places and do big things I would bet on Scout being that person. She has a lot to learn but her expectations for her life definitely go outside of what Maycomb has to offer.

Talking about Race with My Four-Year-Old

Talking about Race with My Four-Year-Old | Scout | Scoop.it
Sheila's insight:

Scout is still figuring out racism and the child in this article is too. Scout knows that in her community African American people are considered lesser but at some points during the book when she is really thinking about it, she says she thinks that everybody is equal. The mother in this article does not want her son to be racist just as Scout's father does not want her to be racist.

Lyrics to 'Brave' by Sara Bareilles. You can be amazing / You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug / You can be the outcast / Or be the backlash of
Sheila's insight:

This song talks about people being their best self. There are many parts of this song that relate to Scout and the way she feels but one line especially really shows what she is going through. "Nothing's gonna hurt you the way that words do. And they settle beneath your skin." Scout and her family have been called many terrible names and she has had to work very hard to control her temper and not fight anyone because of it.

Sheila's insight:

Ramona is a little bit of a tag-a-long to her older sister Beezus and she sometimes blurts things out that should not be said. Scout does not have much of a filter and she follows her brother Jem around. Both girls are very strong-willed and are still figuring out the world.

Bhau Gawande: I want to go back to the time when....

Sheila's insight:

Scout matures a lot during the course of this novel. She experiences many things that cause her to become a lot less innocent and realizes life is not always fair. She starts to understand that things cannot always go back to the way they were once you have experienced something that causes you to look at it a completely different way.

Sheila's insight:

Scout is very adventurous and is outside a lot of the time. She would love riding a vespa around and learning how to do tricks on it. During the summers Scout, Dill, and Jem would have a lot of fun playing around with the vespa.

Sheila's insight:

The way that this painting represents Scout is through its colors. The plain white canvas represents her mind when she was very young. The black and gray represent the many memories and events that have happened in her life and have stuck with her. The red represents very important events in Scout's life that have changed her. For example the Tom Robinson case; after the trial is over Scout will never be the same person she was before.

Sheila's insight:

Scout is not very lady-like but she is very strong. The woman in this photo is supposed to be showing other women that they can be strong too. The woman is wearing a boy shirt just as Scout wears pants and not dresses like many other girls.
