I primarily teach 11th grade American Literature, with a 12th grade Philosophy in Literature course in there sometimes.
  1. While holding up a copy of "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn": "Will there be adventures in this book?"
  2. "Mr. Flinn, what was the baby's name in The Scarlet Letter? Was it Anna?"
  3. Q. Describe the tone of Jonathan Edwards' sermon "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God." A. BAM! JESUS!
  4. Lessons learned from grading semester exams: Hester Prynne stood alone on the SCALPEL and Huckleberry Finn helped rescue his friend GYM.
  5. "Hamlet is a cowherd."
  6. "Can't we argue that Meursault is basically a senior, since he cares even less than we do? I mean, dude gives ZERO."
  7. "Holden who? Does he go here?"
