I know it's not punishment. I was just checking to see if you were joking or not. I wouldn't mind doing a paper. that's a free A to me. Funny thing, our teacher that supervisors anime club is a History teacher that loves to give out essays. I might bring this up with her.
I wasn't kidding. I teach high school English and would definitely make sure my student wrote a paper for some credit if they brought this to me. It's not a punishment; it's an opportunity to learn.
