Because in the real world everything’s black and white.  #hallway100

This actually happened to me once, though not in English class ironically.  And I also had not read the book, but that’s not the point.  Annotating isn’t necessary to understanding the book.  It might be for some people, just as some people work better with flashcards than notes.  Obviously my teacher found annotating necessary, but that doesn’t mean everyone else finds it helpful.  The best part… I do annotate now (somewhat), but only in history books I read for fun (yes, fun).

Come back tomorrow for more Berk!  High school English isn’t going anywhere (unfortunately).  🙂
