British Literature Come Alive
Mr Sullivan had a reputation for being a little quirky. Many students dread the depth with which he plunged into the classics of British Literature. To top it off, he didn't just teach the who, what and where of great stories - his class was interdisciplanary... you had to do more than just read and remember.
Of course, this approach to learning is exactly what made the subject come alive for me and many others. To this day I can quote the opening of Chaucer's Tale, or the famous "To Be or Not To Be" soliloquy. And I will never forget the class bike trip to a local park where at each stop a group had to perform their modern take on one of Chaucer's Tales.
Mr. Sullivan really solidified the spirit with which I think learning should be imbued - subjects aren't just a flat series of words on a page, but rather a fully rounded concept that needs to be explored from all sides to come alive. Thank you good sir, your teachings were mighty.
