Pap materializes in wait for Huck in Huck’s bedroom one night

Conflict: A body was found in the river and it was believed to be Huck’s dad. However, the face is unrecognizable, but as the chapters go by it turns out that he is not dead.
What Huck learns: He learned that society has a lot of rules and customs that which if not followed might bring a swift-correcting backhand.
Key Questions: What is expected from people in society?Why is it important to fit in and have approval of others?

What did Huck learn: When he is kidnapped by his dad, he realizes it is a passive blessing because he does not have to conform to the rules and expectations of society.
important questions: Does one follow obvious and inevitably destructive instructions from an abusive father? Should Huck have killed his father in his sleep and stayed with his Miss Douglas and Miss Watson instead of faking his death and caused so much heart-ache? Characters: Jim and Huck

"but he said I must go in the dark and look sharp. Then he studied it over and said, couldn't I put on some of them old things and dress up like a girl? That was a good notion, too" Ep 4 Walter Scott “The two of them live pretty high, buying, stealing, or hunting food as they need it” Location: getting back from woman's cabin leaving jackson island they find the Walter Scott boat that was being robbed and later seeing the greats lights of St. Louis approaching the Ohio river
-conflict: passively killed the robbers even though they sent for help
-Characters: Woman and her husband, Jim and Huck, ferry watchman-Plot overview:

They took the criminal's boat and sent the watchman to investigate,but they inevitably died on the boat. They sank the boat when they found their original boat.-What huck has learned: to feel for people other than himself which is why had a change of conscience and decided to stop the criminals.-Essential questions: What should have be done about the robbers?

If Huck does not turn Jim in, he is actually seen as a thief because he has stolen Jim as stolen property. This is the dilemma he has to deal with because he wants to do the right thing of turning something that does not belong to him but yet Jim is a person and Huck’s feeling towards slavery is changing. He decides to not turn Jim in and collects 50 dollars of pity money from men thinking he and "his family" have smallpox. The raft is struck by a steamboat and they dodge only to be split up and huck to be cornered by a pack of dogs. Huck is saved under the alias of George.

- Conflict: The two families are fighting for no apparent reason that they can remember.
- What did Huck learn: Hatred can be dangerous and ugly. Sometimes laughing is insensitive
essential questions: When one does not remember a cause of a fight they should let go any grudges.

-Conflict: Huck witnesses a father shot and killed in front of the man’s daughter
-What did Huck learn?: The people he encounter and the world around him are quite deceitful.-Essential questions: Were the people in the mob all for the cause of lynching or were they there for the show?
