Transcript of Killing Mr. Griffin Prezi

Peer Pressure Peer pressure is a part of life.
The important thing is to know when to give into it and when to stay out of it. There are two types of peer pressure; positive peer pressure and negative peer pressure. Positive peer pressure is when someone encourages you to do something that could help yourself or help someone else. An example of positive peer pressure is when someone encourages you to be a better person. Negative peer pressure is when someone encourages you to do something bad that could affect you or the people around you in an adverse way. By Lois Duncan Killing Mr. Griffin The theme, peer pressure, is a part of life and learning how to deal with it in a proper manner can teach you a great life lesson. I believe the author chose this theme to illustrate how much friends, or even just people you are acquainted with, have an impact on your life and the choices you make throughout it. One quotation I found to prove this theme is: " 'Okay.' She heard her voice speaking the word, and her heart rose suddenly into her throat. Had she really said that? Had she actually agreed to this insanity?" (50). This quote shows that Susan did not intend to agree to this plan. Throughout the book she is known as the student who does the best in school, and a goody two shoes. She didn't believe herself when she agreed to it. Another quotation I found to support my theme is: "All of David's life rose up behind him in one great, grey wave. 'Count me in,' he said." (39) This quote shows that David also gave into peer pressure. He wants to do good in school but Mr. Griffin is not giving him the best grades. When he sees the opportunity to possibly do better in school and make his mother proud, he joins Mark Kinney in his master plan to 'scare' Mr. Griffin. Duncan,Lois. Killing Mr. Griffin.
