Some similarities between TKAM and the movie were how portly the whites treated the blacks. Another is how much the whites underestimated the black community but they powered through enough to show them they are equal. One thing I learned was to never listen to anyone who doesn’t see your true potential and abilities.
Very well put. Great job
Nice thinking, that’s a great idea
Both sides have racial problems. I also noticed they both were about coming of age. Also a lot goes into competitive debate.
That is very true.
Yes, I do agree with this comment.
This is very true.
Dude i agree
Both stories struggle with racial differences. Neither story is willing to see the other side. They are both so set on his or her opinions.
I agree that both aren’t willing to see the other side.
This is true
This is true
I agree with this.
Both the book and the movie fight for racial equality.
Competitive debate is a lot like being in a courtroom but debating has a large part of politics. In the book to kill a mockingbird the court case had a large part of politics. Another similarity is that they both fought for the freedom of blacks.
I agree, they fought for the same things.
Good point 👍
I agree that it involves a lot of politics.
Intelligent comment Eli
I learned that debates can get very intense. I also learned that you have to be able to debate both sides of a topic. In both the book and the film, the debates are about the rights of African-Americans.
I agree that you have to be able to debate both sides of the topic.
That is very correct
Being able to debate both sides of a topic is very important
I agree that you have to talk about both sides even if you don’t want to.
I learned that competitive debate is a lot more than simply debating skills. A lot of work goes into it and they do extensive research. Both the films deal with racism in the south. We see mistreatment of African Americans in both stories.
I agree, a ton of work goes into it.
I agree, debaters have to do a lot of research.
I also learned that the competitive debate is a lot more complicated then it sounds.
I learned that debate was a big deal and takes a lot of work. I still don’t understand how you win a match of debating. Some similarities are of course the injustices of white people to black people, and Pharmer Jr. is innocent about the manner like Scout.
I agree they were both innocent
I learned that in competitive debate you are judged not only on what you say but how you present it and what your sources are. One similarity is how racist the white people are and how bad they treat the black people.
This is very true and sad
Competitive debating looks challenging but rewarding. TKAM and the movie deal with young minds that are introduced to racism and have to learn to live with it.
That’s true, the kids do have to learn to deal with being surrounded by racism.
One similarity was the trial in the book and the debate in the movie. They were against all odds while facing racial inequality in the Jim Crow South. Another similarity is that the main characters are growing up and coming of age.
That’s a great example about the court case and the debate.
I learned that competitive debate is about realistic topics that actually gets really intense. A similarity between the movie and To Kill A Mockingbird is how they told their stories about rascism. Also they both fought for freedom for the blacks.
Yes I agree with that
In both TKAM and The Great Debaters there were racial issues, it was based around the same timeframe and they were both powerful coming of age pieces of literature.
Competitive debate takes a lot of skill as well as knowing a lot of information. TKAM and The Great Debators were very similar pertaining to racial discrimination. Both also had debates about African American people.
I agree with the first sentence debate does take a lot of work.
I learned debate can carry a powerful message. Some similarities are the both are touching the topic of racial equality and civil rights.
Good job I agree.
Good job I agree with this.
Some similarities were how they both didn’t have a fair trail. Professor Tolson got arrested on assumption the sheriff didn’t actually know if he did it. In the book Tom Robinson didn’t get a fair one either when the evidence proved he wasn’t guilty.
The competitive debate was very similar To Kill A Mockingbird because the both are fighting for the same ethnicity or race. They are also both about young adolescents during the mid nineteen hundreds. As a viewer we get to see each side of the story this make them very similar too.
They both fight for racial equality and the characters in both are growing up and maturing.
I learned that debating carries powerful messages. They both have really bad racism. They both were doing stuff while the odds were against them.
Both the movie and the book had to deal with racial inequality. I realized that debating takes a lot of skill.
They both fight for racial equality. White in both treated the blacks very poorly and not fairly. Blacks have more potential then the white people thought they did.
Not everyone is equal in this time. There are still those favored and no matter how well your case is displayed there will be those who will never believe you.
