S: Scout's Portfolio: By Jean Louise Finch
FC: Scout's Portfolio
1: Scout Diaries My name is Jean Louise Finch, but you can just call me Scout. I can play anything a boy can and I do not act like a girl no matter how many times my brother Jem says I do. I am not afraid of anything and I will beat up anybody who is mean to me. My dad Atticus and Aunt Alexandra tell me fighting is not lady-like, but they are no fun anyway. Jem and Dill are nice to me and we will play games or try to get a peek at Boo Radley. Jem likes to kieep to himself and he will not talk to me at school. He says school is different than at home, but I do not think I will ever understand.
2: Scout Diaries(cont.) I sometimes think that Atticus is boring, but Jem and I were proved wrong. One Day, a rabid dog was out on the street we told our house keeper Calpurnia about him and she called Atticus and Sheriff Heck Tate right away. Heck was not a good shot and he gave Atticus the gun and Atticus hit the dog with one shot! Mr. Tate told us he was the best shot in the county and I wondered why he never told us. He always thought he had an unfair advantage on the things he shot, but I do not understand his philosophy.
3: Family and Friends I have a lot of family members and friends that I can rely on. My father, brother, and predetermined husband are very reliable people that guide my through my life. My daddy, Atticus, always has an answer for whatever questions I might have. My brother Jem has a way of knowing things too. He is not as good as Atticus, but he knows more than me. Jem plays with me and we will play plenty of games. He likes to create games in his head that we can play.
4: Family and Friends(cont.) Dill is my future husband. As soon as we are old enough, we are going to get married although I do not really understand marriage. Dill came to Maycomb from Meridian and he is nice. He likes to come up with ways to get a peek at Boo Radley.
5: Experiences I have had many experiences in my life as a kid. One time, Jem, Dill, and I were trying to get a peek at Boo Radley. We almost got caught by Nathan Radley and he shot a warning shot at us. We ran as fast as we could to get away and Jem lost his pants on a fence. When he went back to go get them, they were folded neatly over the fence.
6: Experiences(cont.) Another time I almost lost my life was when we had a pageant and I had to be a ham. Jem and I were headed home when we were attacked by Mr. Ewell. He almost killed us with a knife but he fell on it and Boo Radley saved us.
7: My Artifacts I have a couple of things that are important to me and my family. Jem and I have found things in a hole in a tree by the Radley house. Jem and I found a medal that he said was from when the school had spelling bees. Jem also found a broken stopwatch and we found dolls that looked just like us. They were carved out of wood and I wonder if Boo made them.
8: My Artifacts(cont.) I also found some gum in the tree. There were two pieces of Wrigley's Doublemint. There were rumors that anything eaten off of the Radley tree was poisoned, but after I took a few licks I found out it was alright to chew. When I got home, Jem asked me about the gum and when I told him he made me spit it out or else he would tell Calpurnia on me and I did not want to face her wrath so I did what he said.
9: My Lessons Atticus is good at giving people life lessons and I think I can do that too. I have once taken Mr. Arthur home and I said to him, "Mr. Arthur, bend your arm down here, like that." I slipped y hand into the crook of his arm and he took me to his house. I thought that he was too shy and was locked up in his house too long so I thought that I could teach him something and be like Atticus. Aunt Alexandra and Miss Maudie taught me proper manners and I can teach them too.
