Hall Andrew Hall Ms. Sonya Lawson Parrish English 111 7 September 2011 Conform? I Think Not I spent my last four years at an all boy Catholic school, St. Francis de Sales High School. So being that it is a Catholic high school, it only made sense that in our religion classes we talked about and wrote about prevalent issues that were at hand in our society and discussed the morality of these issues. Now, just because I am a Catholic does not mean that I am in full and complete agreement with everything that the church does and teaches. I would go as far as to say that there are more Catholics who disagree with some decisions or teachings of the church than there are who whole heartedly agree with everything that the church does and say.

This was a religion course but, as a senior high school class should be, it was much more in- depth than I had ever experienced before. For the first time we talked about God in many new ways as well as the origins of Catholic teachings that I had never thought about before.

It was a cool environment

I liked it because I could see everyone, and since it was a mainly discussion based class that was helpful to be able to talk to my fellow classmates face to face instead of just toward the front of the room (now that I think about it, English 111 with Ms. Parrish reminds me of it because of the way the room is set up and discussion type class). We went over the syllabus, which finally gave me an idea of what the assignments and tests would be like. Apparently my teacher loved to read because all of our homework was either short essays or long essays. The tests were short answer questions along
