Reeker,D
Per. 1

Chp.17
1.) Heck Tate said when he got to the Ewell's house he saw Mayella on the floor pretty well beat up. "Did anybody call a doctor?", asked Atticus and they didn't so that made things suspicious. When Atticus asked some more questions Mr. Tate didn't seem sure of what to say.
2.) Their house seems like chaos with no love. Mr. Ewell seemed to be more concerned with others than his own daughter. Instead of checking Mayella's injuries, he goes after the defendant. "Didn't you think she should have had a doctor, immediately?" made me write the third sentence.
3.)His evidence sounded like a lie because his answers don't add up. He ran a lot on the night of August 21 but did not run to a doctor, which made him look selfish. " I hold with everything tate said", said Mr Ewell so that makes him a follower or Mr. Tates dog.
4.) Atticus wants to know what hand Mr. Ewell uses most of the time when he asked,"Will you write your name and show us?". Apparently he uses his left hand and Mayella was beat on her right side of the face. Now things are starting to make sense.

Chp.)18
5.)She is like her father because both of them don't seem to know what to say. When both of them went up to take the oath on the Bible they each had a different expression like they shouldn't be lieing. "Robinson" was the person that they both thought was the raper.
6.)She's accusing the man she love's and she's feeling really bad about it."Him", aka Mr. Finch made her scared because she doesn't want to look like a lier when he asks her these questions. There also may be a probability that she's crying because her truth wasn't the truth.
7.)She was surprised and pleased, very rarely you will see that in her life. "He does tollable,'cept when-", said Mayella then she stuttered and answered in a not sure voice and that made her dad look mean.Then I think the people kew what was going on.\
8.)I didn't really believe his statements because I'm not on his side so I guess that makes a difference because I know whats going to happen and the jury doesn't. The jury has no idea who is telling the truth while on the otherhand I do. "Did you scream and fight back?", said Mr. Gilmer and that was pretty much the same questions as Atticus so I didn't think he persuaded me to be on his side of the trial.
Chp.)19
9.) Mayella always needed help with something plus Tom always passed by her house everyday. She asked him if he wanted a nickel for his services but he was polite and did not take the generous offer."No suh, not after she offered me a nickel for the first time." That made him like helping her out because she "was" nice.
10.)Scout was feeling sorry for her because she didn't have any friends when Atticus asked her. " She was lonelier than Boo Radley" because of my first sentence. She didn't have any white friends because she lived among pigs and she didn't have any black friends because she was white.
11.) Her relationship with her father was terrible because she sounded forced to say the lies that came out of her mouth. You could tell she was his little slave,practiacally. When she says,"He never touched me!" it sounded extremely forced out of her.
12.)He's the only normal one in the book because he doesn't like it when Mr. Gilmer calls the Tom a negro. I can understand his crying because he's at a young age and he couldn't handle the situation. "Dill,that's his job",said Scout but that still didn't comfort him.
Chp.)20
13.)I think Scout says that because he's had a bad reputation with the other people in Maycomb. I wasn'sure but I think he's a drunk bum or that's what I thought. Scout is just ignorant of Mr. Raymonds life just like everybody else. I know that when he says,"Secretly I'm not much of a heavy drinker."
14.)He doesn't want to ruin his rep because he likes the way he lives right know. "He can't help himself, thats why he lives the way he does.", says the public and he likes it when people think bad of him. He doesn't want to drink real whiskey to his paper bag poses as an alcoholic beverage.
15.)"She was white and tempted a negro.",said Mr. Atticus when he said she did something wrong. Our society would not look too kindly for her actions if we were still in the olden days. Everybody could see or thats what Atticus was saying.
16.) "Thomas Jefferson once sais that all men are created equal" was an example Atticus was trying to point out. The only time we are equal is when we are in court. None of us are equal though because some of us are born with advantages or disadvantages so nobody is entirely equal to somebody else.

Chapter 17
1. What are the main points in Heck Tate's evidence? What does Atticus show in his cross-examination of Sheriff Tate?
Heck Tate said when he got to the Ewells house that Mayella Ewell was beaten up ver badly. Atticus asked Mr. Tate if they had called a doctor but Mr. Tate said no. After that question Mr. Tate seemed hesitant to answer the questions because he was trying to answer them the right way.
2. What do we learn indirectly of the home life of the Ewell family in this chapter?
We learn that the home life for the Ewells isn’t that good because they live right by a garbage dump and by a lot of black people. There house isn’t that good either. It is made up of iron. Also it had windows cut out of the walls.
3. What do you learn from Bob Ewell's evidence?
I learned that he was just saying that he agreed with everything Mr. Tate said. He wasn’t speaking for himself, just saying that everything Mr. Tate was right and thats how it went.
4. Why does Atticus ask Bob Ewell to write out his name? What does the jury see when he does this?
Atticus asks Mr. Ewell to write his name because Myella was all beaten up on her right side and it would take a left handed man to have beaten her up. The jury sees that Mr. Ewell is left handed.
Chapter 18
5. Is Mayella like her father or different from him? In what ways?
They are alike because when they we testifying they both were hesitant and were changing their story a lot. Also when they were taking the oath they both had funny facil expressions like they were doing something wrong.
6. What might be the reason for Mayella's crying in the court?
Mayella was probably crying to try and get sympathy from the judge and jury. Also it could be because she was lying and she felt bad about it.
7. How does Mayella react to Atticus's politeness? Is she used to people being polite?
When Atticus is polite to mayella she starts getting angry because she says he is mocking her. But he wasn't he was trying to be nice to her. She isnt' used to people being polite because her father is always drunk so he is mean.
8. How well does Mr. Gilmer prove Tom's guilt in the eyes of the reader (you) and in the eyes of the jury? Can you suggest why these might be different?
For the reader he really doesn't prove anything just that it is Mayellas word againist Tom Robinsons. To the jury it is different because she is a white women and he is a black man. And in those days white peoples word always meat more than a black peoples words.
Chapter 19
9. What made Tom visit the Ewell's house in the first place?
Mayella Ewell had asked him to come inside the house because she had something for him to do. She said that the door was off the hinges and that it needed to be fixed. But when he went and looked at the door it was fine.
10. Why does Scout think that Mayella Ewell was “the loneliest person in the world”?
Scout thinks Mayella is the loneliest person in the world because she does everything with no help from anybody. Also nobody is ever home they are always out.
11. In your own words explain Mayella's relationship with her father.
U think Mayella and her father have a bad relationship. He obviously beats her and makes her do everything. While he just drinks away all there money. Also he is really mean to her and calls her mean names.
12. How does Dill react to this part of the trial? Why is this, in your opinion?
Dill becomes sick because of how Mr. gilmer is treating Tom. He says
it isn't right for Mr. Gilmer to be treating him that way. He says Atticus didn't croos-examine his witnesses like that.

Chapter 20
13. Scout says that “Mr. Dolphus Raymond was an evil man”. Is she right?
No she is not right. I think he is a nice man. People just think he is evil because he lives with colored folks. That is not a bad thing it is his choice.
14. In most states of the USA people who drink alcohol in public places are required to hide their bottle in a paper bag. Why does Dolphus Raymond hide Coca-Cola in a bag?
He hides Coca-Cola in his bags so people will think the reason he can't change his ways is because he is an alcolholic. Also so people will always think he is drunk and no one will bother him.
15. What, according to Atticus, is the thing that Mayella has done wrong?
16. Explain, in your own words, Atticus's views on people's being equal.
Atticus thinks everybody is equal because he treats everybody with the same level of respaect. He doesn't just respaect white peole he also respaects colored people too.

1-Heck Tate said when he got to the Ewells house that Mayella Ewell was beaten up ver badly and was lying on the floor. Atticus asked Mr. Tate if they had called a doctor but Mr. Tate said no. After that question Mr. Tate seemed very quiet and akward to answer questions.


2. I think we learned that the life and the Ewells house wasn't very good nor loving at home. The house they live in isn't that nice.

3- I learned that it seemed like he was lying he was just pretty much saying everything that Mr. Tate said.

4- Atticus told Mr. Ewell to write his name because Mayella was beaten on the right side of her face which if true it would of been a person that used there left hand to beat mayella. The jury see's that Mr. Ewll is left handed.

5-Mayella and her father and the same because they both seemed so postive that Tom Robinson hurt Mayella and they sort of seemed believable. But then again they both were saying stuff but then after they said it would change what they have just said.

6- I personally think Mayella started crying because she might have wanted the jury and judge to feel bad for her and to actually believe her more.

7- When Atticus was being nice to Mayella she starts to get really mad an says that hes mocking her. Atticus was truly trying to be nice to her but she's not used to it so her guards went up and she started getting mad.

8- For me I dont think he really proved anything just that Mayella is trying to prove something which isn't even true but she's plays it out good. For the jury its differnt and they believe her because all of the jury are white and during this time period whites didn't have any sympothy for black peoples words.


9- The reason tom always visited Mayellas house was because she always asked him to come and fix something that was wrong with her house or chores she needed help with. She said she would give him a nickel but he said he didn't want it

10- Scout was feeling sorry for her because she didn't have any friends.

11- Mayella's relatinship with her father was terrible because she sounded like she was so unsure about quetions she was asked from Atticus. She got really mad and at one point she screamed ,"He never touched me!".

12- Dill's the only normal one because he gets affended when Mr. Filmer calls Tom a negro. Even though he is young he still doesn't really truly understand.

13- I think Scout says that Mr. Dolphus Raymond was an evil man because hes had a bad time with other's that live in Maycomb. He basically just seems like a bum and even really looks like one.

14- He doesn't really want things to get out because he likes the way he lives right now. I think he put his whiskey in a coca cola bag so it may be less noticable cause the color is somewhat the same.

15-The thing Mayella did wrong was that she came onto a negro. Which was uncalled for back then. Atticus was just trying to get her to admitt what her actions were.

16- "Thomas Jefferson once said that all men are created equal" this was an example of Atticus trying to point out. The only time we are equal is when we are in court. None of us are equal though because some of us are born with advantages or disadvantages so nobody is entirely equal to somebody else.

Chapter 17
1. Some of the main points in Mr. Tate’s testimony were that Mayella Ewell was beaten around the face, and that she had said that Tom Robinson had “taken advantage of her.” When Atticus is up to ask Heck questions, he makes a point to the jury that no one ever called a doctor for Mayella. He was trying to weaken the whole case by finding a major fault in the person’s involved actions after something so harmful as a rape to happen by not calling for a doctor to make sure Mayella was all right.
2. During the chapter we learn that life in the Ewell family is quite unpleasant. Mayella is obviously terribly lonely, and she doesn’t have a very good father. This chapter also hints that Mr. Ewell himself was probably the one who beat up Mayella.
3. Mr. Ewell testifies that he actually saw Tom Robinson raping his daughter. He never called for a doctor to make sure that Mayella was fully okay, and he didn’t run after Tom Robinson when he ran away. Bob Ewell’s testimony seems very weak and obvious.
4. Atticus asked Mr. Ewell if he could read and write. When Bob says that he certainly can, Atticus asks him to write his name, and so he does. As he does this, Atticus subtly points out that Mr. Ewell is left-handed, which shows the jury that it very well could have been Mr. Ewell himself that beat up his daughter.

Chapter 18
5. Mayella is similar to her father in that she kind of speaks the same way as him. But she is very different when she is on the stand than when he father was. She seems very mousy, scared, and unsure of herself, while her father knew almost exactly what to say and how to act.
6. Mayella is probably fighting with her conscience and that’s why she starts to cry. Deep down she probably cares very much for Tom Robinson, but her father has scared her into lying about what happened.
7. Mayella thinks that Atticus is making fun of her by being polite. She gets very angry after he keeps calling her Miss Mayella and ma’am. She gets upset because she is not used to being treated with respect.
8. How well does Mr. Gilmer prove Tom's guilt in the eyes of the reader (you) and in the eyes of the jury? Can you suggest why these might be different?

Chapter 19
9. Mayella invites Tom Robinson into the Ewell house. She claims to have a task of fixing a door in the house, but when he goes in to have a look at the door, it turns out to be fine. She then asks him to get a box down from on top of a chiffarobe.
10. Scout thinks that Mayella is “the loneliest person in the world,” because of how she lives. Mayella thinks that Atticus is making fun of her once again when he asks if she has friends. Scout also is thinking about how Mayella stays home all the time and really doesn’t have friends.
11. Mayella is close with her father. But it is not a good relationship. Mayella fears her father, and he might be abusing her.
12. Dill has a breakdown at this point in the trial. He becomes very upset about how the case is being handled. Dill is overwhelmed by the negativity of the whole trial. He begins to cry because he has never seen a real life being threatened by racism.

Chapter 20
13. Scout thought that Mr. Raymond was an evil man because he constantly drank. She learns though, that he isn’t really a drunk, he just acts that way so people have a reason to dislike him so. He says that he is making it easier for people to cope with his lifestyle if they think he is an alcoholic.
14. Mr. Raymond conceals his secret beverage in a paper bag to make people think he is drinking alcohol. He feels that if people see him drinking from a bag so often that he is a drunkard, which basically gives him an excuse to live however he pleases.
15. The thing that Mayella has done wrong is lie to everyone. She lies because she doesn’t want anyone to think that she actually had feelings for a Negro.
16. Atticus treats everyone equally. No matter if they are a child, Negro, or drunk. He believes that if he treated everyone higher or lower than him, he is just as bad as that.

3. What do you learn from Bob Ewell's evidence? He does not sound sure of what he is saying about what happened. He says that he ran to his house and then he ran some more, he ran alot. Every thing he says does not add up.
4.Why does Atticus ask Bob Ewell to write out his name? What does the jury see when he does this? Atticus wants to know what hand he writes with. He finds out tha he is left handed.
Chapter 18
5. Is Mayella like her father or different from him? In what ways? I believe that she is different but her dad is making her say that it was him cause he does not like him. She is nothing like her father in the way that she talked to black people.
6. What might be the reason for Mayella's crying in the court? She is afraid of her dad. She does not want to do or say anything to upset him.
7. How does Mayella react to Atticus's politeness? Is she used to people being polite? She is surprised that he is being nice even though she is saying that the man he is protecting is the man she says raped her. She is not used to people being polite with her.
8. How well does Mr. Gilmer prove Tom's guilt in the eyes of the reader (you) and in the eyes of the jury? Can you suggest why these might be different? It shows that that the jury believes what Mayellas says against tom cause she is white and tom is black.

Jcalderon P.1

1. Heck Tate said that Mayella was beaten up pretty bad when he got to the house, he said she was beaten pretty badly. When Atticus asked, “Did you call a doctor, sheriff?”, Mr. Tate said no very hesitantly. This made it seem like Mr. Tate wasn’t sure of what his evidence was and it showed that he was jus trying to make it seem like Tom did it instead of saying the facts.

2. Indirectly we learn that the Ewell’s family is very poor, and that their father isn’t very loving with his children. He didn’t really care about his daughters condition. Atticus questioned this, “ Didn’t you think she should have had a doctor, immediately?”, Mr. Ewell’s response was that it would cost him 5 dollars.

3. We get re-assurance that Mayella was beaten up on the left side of her face. We also learn that he says he saw Tom through the window and ran to the room as soon as possible. He never says to have gone after him but he says he got there and he saw Mayella on the floor and then he called the sheriff.



4. When Atticus asked him to write his name so the jury could see he gave away a good key to helping Tom. When Atticus says, “You’re left handed, Mr. Ewell.”. This information wasn‘t thought to be relevant. Atticus then tells the court that Tom isn’t capable of using his left arm what so ever.

5. Mayella is diferent from her father Mr. Ewell, specially during the trial. “Mayella looked as if she tried to keep clean,”. As opposed to her father who seemed to not take showers and keep clean.

6. “Just tell us what happened. You can do that can’t you?”, after being asked this she burst into tears. She most likely started to cry to make it seem more realistic. She was trying to convince the jury even though she knew she had not been raped, because if she didn’t her father would get angry.

7. She isn’t used to people being nice to her and respecting her like an adult. “Long’s he keeps on calling me ma’am …I don’t hafta take his sass,”. Mayella thinks that Atticus is being mean, and trying to make fun of her when he is just being polite.

8. In the eye of the reader Mr. Gilmer didn’t do a good job of proving Tom guilty. He might have not made me , the reader, think Tom is guilty because we aren’t living in that time period or in that town. We aren’t prejudice while on the other people in that time period were and so they , by instinct, blame colored people for every wrong.

9. Tom says that he always passes by and that he passes by because it’s the only way to get to his house. “ She’d call me in…Seemed like every time I passed by yonder she’d have some little something for me to do…”. He would always go in because she had something for him to do and that day she wanted him to fix the door for her and so he had to step in.

10. Mayella had no friends, and she spent her whole life taking care of the house while her father and brothers just sat around. When she kissed tom Robinson she wasn’t meaning to hurt him she was just looking for love. That’s how scout feels and that’s why she thinks Mayella is “the loneliest person in the world”.

11. I think Mayella’s relationship with her father isn’t a really good one because he shows no compassion to her. I think that he ahs beat her and I don’t doubt that this time it was him as well. He probably makes her do everything around the house so he can just get home and drink and sleep.

Carr N. Per. 1 1)That Tom is black and the girl was beat up badly and the girl said it was Tom.
2)That there life is pretty bad that Bob is a drunk and beats his daughter and Mayella is desperate for anyone to love and or care for her.
3)That he was more concerned about who to blame then helping his daughter.
4)To see if he aws left handed the jury sees that the injuries on Mayellas face are on the right side which shows someone beat her with their left hand.
5)She is different she seems more innocent and scared then her father she seems timid and desperate all the time.
6)Shes scared she might not sell her made up story to the jury and she knows if she doesnt then her father will beat her and maybe feels a bit guilty for accusing Tom for something he didnt do and he always helped her when she neede help.
7)She is surprised at his politness because no one ever treats her nicely so shes not used to it.
8)Not very well at all to the reader probably not well to the jury either.The difference between the two points of view are just time settings back then race was a big deal and now race doesnt mean much at all.
9)Mayella asked him to help with something.
10)Because she seems sad and she never has anyone to talk to inside her broken home.
11)She fears her father because he beats her.
13)Yes
14)so people will think hes a drunk and nobody will bother him.
15)Accused Tom for something her father did and she started in the first place.She tempted a negro.
16)

1. Heck said that he say Mayella on the florr all beaten up. And when asked if he had called the docter he said no.
2. Their hose is in bad shape and they don't live in a particularly nice part of Maycomb.
3. It doesn't fit with the other evidence. It seems 'glitchy'.
4. To see if Bob is left handed or right handed. This corresponds with whether you would punch someone (in their face) either on the left side or the right side and which hand you use to write with is usually the hand you punch first with.
5. I would have to say different. She seems quit gullable and rather panicy.
6. She is being pulled by her innocense to tell the truth and have to face the wrath of her father and by her fear of that wrath to tell a lie.
7. She acts cautious, not knowing what to expect from him. I doubt she is used to being polite to others due to the fact of her current state of living.
8.
9. Mayella asked him if he could fix something, replace something, or break something.

2.That he is never their for his children and he is a liar and that he drinks.
3. That it was all a set up and none of it really happened.
4. He asks to write his name to prove that Bob Ewell is left handed and Mayella Ewel got punched on the right side of her face and so you have to be left handed to punch someone on the right and Tom can’t feel his left hand.
Chapter 18
5. Mayella is like her father because she lies too but on the other hand she is a very lonely woman that has no friends or anything but her garden.
6. She is running out of things to say and Atticus was putting her on the spot and she didn’t know what to say so she decided to cry so people could feel sorry for her.
7. No she isn’t used to people being polite to her because her father is mean to her.
8.
Chapter 19
9. He was going to help Mayella fix something inside the house.
10. Scout thought that because she has no friends and her father is really mean to her.
11. It is not good and by the way Mayella was crying it made it seem as if her father abused her both physically and mentally.
12.
Chapter 20
13. No he is wrong all the time he thought he was drinking beer it was soda.
14. He hides it because he wants people to think he is something when really he is something else.

1. Heck tate said he saw mayella pretty beat up. After atticus asked more questions he wasnt sure what to say.
2. There house is pretty bad without love. Bob went after the defendant rather then checking up on mayella.
3. The evidence did not add up. It did not sound very believable.
4. He wanted to know what hand Bob used most of the time. It was his left mayella was beat on her right side of face.
5. They both dont know what to say. they act the same.

Chapter 17

1.) Sheriff Tate's evidence relied on only the fact that Mayella looked beat up when he arrived and that Mayella said it was Tom Robinson who did it.

2.) That there was a lot of kids in the house, but there was a lot of negativity in that house. Mayella's father had to have been a abusive drunk.

3.) As he walked up to his house he swore he saw Tom Robinson running out the door as if he had done something wrong.

4.) He asked to do that to see which is his good hand, which happened to be with his left hand. Mayella had been beaten by someone who led with their left hand and the jury realized that Tom Robinson had no ability to move his whole left arm anymore after he was involved in an accident.

Chapter 18

5.) She is not like her dad, but at some times from a certain point of view she can be. Her father is mean and abusive while she sometimes can be nice, But they both show know pity for human life and are very much cold hearted.

6.) She tried to put on a good act in court so the jury would believe that she raped. She did not want to be looked at as a person with know morals.

7.) She does not know what to do when Atticus is polite to her since at home nobody is really ever polite toward her.
