Sounder

By, Olivia O'Hare

Theme: Courage

  • By trying to protect his master from the sheriff and making sure nothing happens to him, Sounder showed courage. The mother was courageous because, being patient while caring for her kids, when father is in jail. The father had courage because, when he was in jail he had to do hard labor and he almost died by being crushed by limestone. I thought the boy had courage because, by looking for his father in all the jails around.

Muhammad Ali

  • Muhammad Ali is a very famous boxer and is the heavyweight champion in the 20th century. I thought he had courage because he was an African american and he was a champion. That makes him very brave and courageous. Since he was an African American, people thought he couldn’t make it to the top, but he did. He fought, and he got hurt, but he kept going and became the champion.

Summery for video

  • There was a little boy who was playing outside riding a tricycle. All of a sudden, a vicious Australian Sheppard came running after the boy, the dog pulled the boys leg making him have serious injuries. Luckily the little boys cat saved him from getting worse injuries. After the cat attacked the dog the mom came to help the boy and brought him to the hospital. The boy is fine but he does have some injuries.



  • Sounder tried protecting his master when he had to go to jail like when the dog tried hurting the child, the cat saved him from getting hurt. The cat was very loyal to the child, like sounder was with his master. Also when the master was getting taken away and sounder tried protecting him the cat also protected the boy, and if the cat didn’t come or do that the boy could have got very serious injuries, he already got some injuries from the dog but it could have gotten very worse

Father, Daughter, Dog

  • The dad/ the master or father, enjoyed being outside. Also Cheyennes hip bones stick out like after sounder didn’t eat in a long time his bones stuck out too. Something that I think is different is, the dad had a heart attack, in sounder the dad never did. Another thing is the dad moved in with his daughter and husband, the father in sounder never did.
