    2. In general, the extract explores the values of justice, courage and humanity since the teacher punishes someone for not following the rules

    3. Mr. Davis represents the values of courage and justice by showing persistence and fairness by punishing one of his favourite students. These values are explored from a negative perspective since he was persistent to punish the student. This makes us feel as if Mr. Davis does not feel bad about punishing people, despite the person being one of his favourite students.

    4. Amy represents the values of bravery by not flinching or crying while getting hit and she walked to the desk without showing any emotions. She also represents the value of temperance by not showing emotions and trying to not get punished by silently asking the teacher. This makes Amy look as if she is a strong person and doesn’t like to be seen weak in front of others.

    2) The extract Little Women explores temperance from Mr Davis and courage from Amy.

    3) Mr Davis shows Temperance as Amy was his favourite student but that didn’t stop him from giving her the punishment she deserves. The author explores the values from a negative perspective. This makes us feel like Mr Davis lets his rage take over him.

    4) Amy expressed bravery repeatedly throughout the text like when she brought in limes even when she knew she wasn’t allowed and when she was getting struck she threw her head back like she didn’t care. The author explores the values from a positive perspective. That makes us feel in awe of Amy’s bravery.
