TKM JOURNAL #3:  SIBLINGS

Write at least a page on the topic of siblings. This journal is about having or not having siblings.  Jem and Scout have mostly a very good relationship.  They play together, laugh together, scheme together, face danger together, and question the justice in their world together.  You may have done these things with your siblings, too.  Think about what having a sibling OR not having any siblings has meant to you.  Are you grateful that you've had siblings in your life?  Why?  If you haven't had siblings, do you wish you had?

How do you think they got started?  What effects do they have on you? 

 

 

 

TKM JOURNAL #5:  PREJUDICE

Write at least a page on the topic of prejudice.  What kind of prejudices do you see

might be some ways to combat prejudices and/or personally change? 

 

 

TKM JOURNAL #6:  LESSONS OF CHILDHOOD

Write at least a page on the lessons taught in this novel.  Scout learns many things

during the three years time period of the novel.  She basically moves from the c

hildhood world of innocence and fantasy to the adult reality that there is evil and

injustice and fallibility all around us.  You have certainly begun to realize some of

these understandings and maybe identified with Jem and Scout as their vision of

the world widened.  In this journal, discuss some of the lessons or truths of

realizations you have come to in your life thus far.  What experiences taught you

these lessons?  Discuss what you think some of the lessons are that the children

learned in this novel and what you think of these lessons.

 

 

 

 

TKM JOURNAL #7:  SCOUT'S OR JEM'S OR DILL'S BACKPACK

 Write at least a page on what you would predict might be found in SCOUT'S or JEM'S

or DILL'S BACKPACK if it were to be found.  Choose at least 5 items and explain why

you chose each item and what each item tells you about the kind of person Scout or

Jem or Dill is.

HOW TO DO TKM VOCAB CARDS

 

Front side of the card:

 

 

 

 

 

ASSUAGED

Other forms: assuage, assuaging, assuagement, assuasive

 

 

Lit. word is from: TKM                                             p. 3                                                                                                

 

 

Back side of the card:

 

Part of speech:  verb

 

Definition:  to lessen the intensity of something that pains or   

                    distresses, to ease

 

Sentence (from the lit.):  "When it healed, and Jem's fears of

            never being able to play football were , he  

            was seldom self-conscious about his injury."

 

Trick to remember the word:  “assuage” sounds like it has

            the word “suede” in it.  Suede is soft, and when put on

            something like a couch or car seat, it could make the

           seat feel much more comfortable thus lessening the    

           its potential pain!

64.  "High above us in the darkness a solitary mocker poured out his repertoire in blissful unawareness of whose tree he sat in, plunging from the shrill kee, kee of the sunflower bird to the irascible qua-ack of a bluejay, to the sad LAMENT of Poor Will, poor Will, Poor Will." (p. 255)
