8. Red as carrots

When Anne cracked her slate over Gilbert Blythe’s head for the crime of calling her “Carrots”, what punishment did the schoolmaster use?

A) Whipping with a fair-sized birch switch
B) Writing “I must not lose my temper” 100 times
C) Standing on a platform in front of the class
D) None. He quite understood how insulted Anne felt.

Your answer — B) Writing “I must not lose my temper” 100 times — was incorrect.

Although Gilbert told the schoolmaster that the incident was his fault for teasing Anne, she was made to stand in front of the class, with everyone looking at her. She was further humiliated by the teacher writing her name on the blackboard without the all-important “e”. It was a long time before Anne forgave Gilbert.
