"Themes in To Kill a Mockingbird"

Some majors things in to kill a mockingbird is to be respectful, anger,and love. The author reveals respectful because Jem was tearing Ms.Dubose bushes down and Atticus told him that that was wrong from him doing that. The author reveals anger because the reason Jem teared the bushes of Ms. Dubose it was because she was talking bad about his family and he does not like that. The author also reveals love because when Scout aunt tells Atticus that he should not treat her like a baby, but Atticus tells her that she is still her baby and that he is not going to treat her bad. The lesson that I think Jem is going to learn is to be more respectful. I think that Harper Lee the author is going to make us learn is that to be more respectful and more mature.

Test Prep Action Plan

My goals for test prep is to work on a 4 on the test. I am going to work hard on studying every night for I could pass my test with a 4. I am to go over the things that I am having difficult things like taking notes. I am also going to tell my mother to do me a fake test that have all the things that I don't know like vocabulary and she is going to go over the fake test to see what I did wrong and what I did bad. The things that I get wrong I'm going to go over it. The type of questions that are in the ELA Exam are like what is the hard vocabulary meaning and you have to put yourself in the character's shoes (just a saying). I go over them and until I get what they saying I keep on but now I'm going to work on getting what the questions, passages, and Test Books is saying. I am also going to work on the difficult books for then I could work on the difficult books. But some people talks a lot in the class and I am not able to concentrate well.

To My Parents: What I've Learned so far in ELA.

My biggest accomplishments for this year in ELA so far this year is to be better in Writing and to make my writing persuasive so people could enjoy my writing.
My favorite unit has been on practicing the character unit because you have to put yourself in the character's shoes. We used technology by doing lots of things like politics issues in We also used many different web-sites to do research that we need. Technology helps me learn and improve my reading and writing by helping us do research and many important information that we need to learn.
My goals is to pass the 8th grade and going to a good high school. My other goals is to pass all my classes like Literacy and Math. Reading and Writing are important for the future because when you come up with a letter that it is not yours you going to read it and then it will says that you have to pay the bills then you would have to get out of your house and go somewhere.
