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."
