The 'O' Pioneers! and agriculture research

The teacher let the class go to the library to spend an hour on our research paper. It's due in two weeks and she wants even the notes turned in in a specific format. I originally stayed in the class because I didn't feel like working on the research right now. The teacher then started putting some questions on the board for the book we're reading, "O Pioneers!" Well, I very quickly wanted to walk out the classroom and not stop until I got home, but I decided going to the library will do for the moment. I really don't want to go back to class.

She has insisted many times that this is not a psychology class. I feel that the questions she askes tell otherwise, because those questions deal more with psychology than anything else. She wants to know why did she do this, why did he say this, why did they feel this way, why did such and such happen... Quite honestly, that's not English Composition or even English Literature; that's psychology. That's the only way to know the answer to those kinds of questions. The kinds of questions we should really be getting asked is "Why was such and such special to so and so?" I could answer that; "They liked such and such because it was given to them by so and so for blah blah."


*goes back to looking up agriculture practices of the 19th century in Nebraska for the research paper*
