Finished To Kill a Mockingbird a minute ago

This was the first book that I ever read because I wanted to read it, not because someone forced me to read (E.G. For school/reading competitions).

I was surprised to shed some tears after finishing it. Although I do often cry when watching sad movies, or when finishing books with tragic endings, this novel doesn't have a sad ending in particular.

I feel like I cried because of how tense the last 20 pages were, how good they were, how eye-opening it was to finally read this work of art.

In my country, full-on novels aren't required in the curriculum. Our books are filled with short summaries to stories, biographies and novels. But we never actually read an original book. Like EVER. So you must understand how amazing it felt to finally accomplish this.

Although I do not want to sound corny, I must say that I think this book found me more than I found it. I 100% believed in the themes and messages in it, and the book made an amazing job at reassuring them.

Reading the last 2 pages was an experience on its own. The way Scout summarized the whole story from Boo's perspective gave me goosebumps. When she told Atticus about the story of an innocent man who gets wrongfully convicted, but then everyone realizes he is a nice person, I kept thinking I NEED MORE OF THIS.

As a person whose first language isn't English, this was a hard read. I am far better than my contemporaries at school in English, but I still had to google a word or two every 4 lines or so. In addition to the many visits to Genius (a website that explains song lyrics, and in this case, books) to try to understand what was happening during the wild metaphors which went right above my head.

All in all, I loved it and I wish that I discover books that are similar to it in the future. I would like to thank this subreddit for bringing my attention to it; I had heard about this book a while ago but it was a post on here that made me curious to pursue reading it.

Mockingbird was such an awesome character, it was a shame she left Agents of SHIELD only for her spin-off to be cancelled. Hopefully Adrianne Palicki can return to the role in the future, and join the greater MCU, as she deserves.

I work in a conservative town in a red state and am being forced to teach To Kill a Mockingbird. It is bringing up tensions about race for my white conservative male students. How do I do the book justice while not getting those students riled up?

TKAM is all about racism and prejudice, I cant just ignore the major themes. We are in the middle of the trial and I had my students make inferences about how they think the jury will vote. One student said, β€œAlthough the evidence is clearly in Tom’s favor, the way this town has treated black people, I think they’ll find him guilty because they’re racist.”

This set some of my conservative boys off. I had a student yell and say β€œwhy are we talking about racism if it’s making us angry?” He’s one of the ones who is very conservative. Well I have to teach the book and I can’t just ignore the biggest theme.

We will finish the trial next week, and the outcome. I was planning to bring in a nonfiction text about Emmett Till and an amazing tedtalk called β€œHow to Raise a Black Son in America” and have them discuss connections to the book.

I am not trying to push a liberal agenda, but I believe these texts paired with the book will help them interact with the text in a different way. It’s not just a story, it’s a reality for many black Americans.

How do I move forward with my plan without having the kids freaking out, mumbling under their breath and arguing with me? It’s only a handful of students, maybe 5, but they’re a vocal minority.

To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the greatest works every created

I just finished reading it for school and it left me in tears. No other book has done that. My dad always said it was his favorite book growing so we had a long discussion about it in the car. I was crying the whole way as I processed everything the book did and told. It’s truly an incredible story that teaches so much about empathy and the evils of prejudice. If you haven’t read it, I beg you to and to remember it’s lessons in everyday life. It’s honestly a masterpiece of fiction and something to remember for the rest of your life.

Nick Fury, Mockingbird, Ironheart - A staple trio

Mockingbird is consistently regarded as a very powerful ally. This is definitely not unwarranted, as she is definitely very powerful.

Recently, I've realised that I've been undervaluing Nick Fury and Ironheart who are 2 further basic allies who are comparably strong. Here are some numbers to show them off (ER stands for effective resource - this is the net number of resources/cards in hand lost after the card is played):

Mockingbird - 4ER for 2atk/thw and 2 villain blocks (one of which is stun)

The very powerful stats that we know and love - I'm going to use this as a baseline to compare the others to.

Ironheart - 2ER for 1 atk/thw and 1 villain block

Pros: So Ironheart can be considered a sort of "half" mockingbird. There are times she will be even better than Mockingbird as you will have more cards left to play something different.

Cons: There are times this will be not as good as the rest of your hand might not be good as playing the "second half" of mockingbird would be. 2 cost draw 1 is not always as good as 1 cost though as I'll explain with Nick Fury.

Nick Fury - 2ER for 2atk/thw and 1 villain block (this assumes draw 3 effect is chosen)

Pros: Now, on paper that makes Nick Fury the strongest of the 3 per resource. He costs half as much as mockingbird, blocks half the attacks BUT still attack/thwarts for the same amount. He also has the added versatility of being able to choose the damage/thwart effects instead. Nick Fury is incredibly strong for making use of double resource cards as well, since he can be paid for with 2 of them if you want to.

Cons: Nick Fury HAS to be used to block on the same turn you play him or that effect is wasted. This means he isn't nearly as useful on a turn where the villain is stunned or where you have flipped into alter ego (much more relevant in solo). Also, costing 4 drawing 3 isn't necessarily as good as just outright costing 1. E.g. For simplicity - assuming a 5 card hand - you can play a 1 cost card making sure that of the other 4 cards you leave a 2 cost card in hand that you can play. If instead you discard all 4 for Nick Fury there is no guarantee that the 3 cards you draw will include something you can/want to play.

Overall:

I think Mockingbird is probably slightly better than the other 2, but really not by very much at all. Lately most of my decks have been including all 3 of these. If you add in both the carriers (and possibly avengers mansion) then the power in all of us already has a solid num

Any birders? Is this a mockingbird I'm listening to?

I've become obsessed with this bird that lives by my front patio. He constantly runs through a huge variety of bird calls in a rapid pace like, car-alarm style. He pauses a bit in the first few seconds of the video but really picks up about 18 seconds in. You can obviously hear other birds in the background but the main noise in this video is all from one bird. Silly question, I'm just having trouble confirming what kind of bird makes sounds like this. I'm assuming a mockingbird?
