Advice for students:
The best way to connect to the stories is to have a sense of humor. Mrs. Mason loves off-the-wall essay topics and making fun of the stories we read. For instance, when we read "The Storm" by Kate Chopin, Mrs. Mason described it as the Fifty Shades of the 1800s. Also, get the grammar labs and journals entries done as soon as possible. They are easy grades to earn if you are not satisfied with your average.
