Explain the them of morality in Harper Lee's "To Kill A Mockingbird."
The theme of morality in Lee's "To Kill A Mockingbird" is a theme of good versus evil. Are people inherently good or are they born evil? Can one side overcome the other? For example, is the Ewell family inherently evil and racist or are they a product of their times? Small town living in Southern Alabama, as much of Southern America was at the time, is rife with racism and poverty. It would not be unfathomable to believe that the Ewells could have possibly been more accepting of Tom Robinson if their economic and social status were more elevated much like Atticus'.
What is the purpose of the Oxford comma?
The Oxford comma exists to remove ambiguity in sentences.
What are the benefits of the theory behind Vygotsky's Zone of Proximal Development?
The ZPD is the difference between what a learner can do alone and what a learner can do with help. As educators we want students to push themselves out of the zone of what they can do with no help into the zone of what they can do with some help. As they learn and grow, what they are capable of with help becomes what they are capable of without help. Thus their zone of accomplishing a task with no help expands allowing them to become independent learners.
