During the Socratic seminar, we discussed the main things that socialized Scout in the book, “To Kill A Mockingbird.” Some of the main things that we discussed were how she was socialized to think differently about african americans because her father, Atticus was a lawyer who defended them. We also talked about how she and her brother had a different opinion on Boo Radley at the end of the book, because they had seen that he was not a monster, like everyone insisted he was. I thought that it was interesting how people talked about how their opinion of Boo radley changed. At the beginning of the book, Scout and Gem saw Boo as a monster, because of the stories and rumors they had heard about him and his family. After he saved the children from Mayella’s father, the kids saw that he wasn’t the monster they thought he was. I was not as prepared as I should have been for this socratic seminar. I had some evidence to support my points, but not as much as I should have. I think this happened because I fell behind on the book, and I was more concerned with finishing the book than I was with annotating. I think that the lessons and messages in this book have become more important and relevant in recent years, especially with the way our society is currently functioning, because of so much racism and prejudice. I think that it is really important to teach people the lessons in this book, so maybe we can prevent some racism and discrimination in the future.
