     Mr Keesing had a good laugh at my arguments, but when I proceeded to talk my way through the next lesson, he assigned me a second essay. This time it was supposed to be on ‘An Incorrigible Chatterbox’. I handed it in, and Mr Keesing had nothing to complain about for two whole lessons. However, during the third lesson he’d finally had enough. “Anne Frank, as punishment for talking in class, write an essay entitled — ‘Quack, Quack, Quack, Said Mistress Chatterbox’.”
As mentioned earlier, the math teacher, in Anne's recall, was frequently irritated by her talkativeness. As punishment for talking in class, he assigned her additional homework. The first punishment was having to compose an essay about "Chatterbox," which the author found odd. She thought over the subject and decided to offer specific justifications for speaking. Although she can't entirely stop talking, she stated in the essay that she will attempt to improve herself.
Mr. Keesing began to laugh the following day as he read out Anne's persuasive essay. Even after receiving punishment, Anne continued to make the same error of conversing during Keesing's class. Because of this, Mr. Keesing gave Anne his second punishment, which was to write an essay with the title "An Incorrigible Chatterbox". Mr. Keesing gave Anne a second topic due to the reason she had not changed her talkative nature.
The following punishment included the word "incorrigible" because Mr. Keesing was certain that Anne's talkative nature had not changed despite his punishment, and she had continued to chatter during his class. Anne again disrupted the class by talking, which made Keesing upset and forced him to punish her once more. And for the third time, Anne was forced to write on a topic named "Quack, Quack, Quack, Said Mistress Chatterbox"
Children frequently take breaks throughout class to talk and play with friends. Readers are brought back to their own school days by Anne.
