Mr. Ritter! Come back! I know you're on sabbatical but many of us really miss you. Tell us a story. Are you going to graduation?
Had Ritter for AP Eng 72/74 and it was one of the best classes I've taken so far. He's a really interesting person, lots of great stories during story time. In terms of teaching, we never used any textbooks and we read a variety of literature. Your grade is based off of mostly writing assignments so take them seriously. (It shouldn't be too difficult, most of it is creative writing.)
My fondest memories of Lowell usually lead back to Mr. Ritter's classes. Story time was great, and the reading selections were usually awesome. He always spoke in this somewhat monotonous voice, but just the way he presents the material in a way that engages you makes you forget his voice is trying to put you to sleep. I'm not sure if his class helped my English skills that much more by the time I took him(senior year), but his class sure was the most fun and engaging. Very highly recommended!
I had Ritter seven years ago and like many I questioned his stories. Now I live in Italy and I just met one of his old roommates. He confirmed the ghost stories! He's that teacher you still talk about when you're reminiscing. Take him.
best teacher ever. party every day. TAKE HIM. really interesting guy and his class was really fun. he loves his students and his students love him. his bingo is so fun!!!!!! go mr ritter!
Love this teacher. Definitely take him if you get the chance. Story time on Mondays is awesome and sometimes it takes up the entire class period. I would take his class again if I could,
Great teacher! I actually enjoy his class. He is interesting and offers good feedback on essays. Very chill class. Story time on Monday is exciting. Flips coins for pop quizzes.
A very very cool person. definitely worth taking his class, if only to experience the chillness of Ritter.
This guy is one of the best English teachers I've ever had (Ms. Canepa is another). Even if you're not in hia class anymore, he's still willing to look over your essay.
omg his class was so easy, i got an A but didn't learn anything!
JEOPARDY! great guy, really fun class! make sure you read though because there are coin flip pop quizzes!
One of the best English teachers out there. Easy A, and you have a kick-**** time in his class. His "silent" voice actually gets me to pay attention.
I'd describe him as a stereotypic San Franciscan. He's very opinionated, sorta quirky, but learned...had him for 9th honors, wasn't as hard as some say, definitely not as mean as some say. very cool and up-to-date.
Rushes students with timed essays, then takes abnormally long to return them. One word: hypocrite. Also, plays favorites with students, you can tell.
His grading was very slow, but he was interesting in the class discussions. Participation is a must. Doesn't teach anything about themes, something that some of the other 9th grade English teachers focus pretty heavily on. Make sure you know how to write for his essays. They is hard.
i LOVE mr. ritter.. you should definitely take him for lit&psych.
he is SO cool. one of my favorites at lowell. its worth it to take him just for storytime. just make sure you tell one - it the easiest points to get.
Take him only if you love to participate. You can ace everything and the highest grade you can get is a 85% B if you never participate. HW daily. You do a lot of work but it's not really challenging. He has a monotome voice. Interesting pretty good class. Somewhat conceited. He made me hate English class at Lowell because it's nearly impossible to get an A and I got straight C's even though I tried harder than some of my lazy classmates. Not fair.
yah hes a realy relaxed teacher and hes got all these stories lyk about motorcyles. his voice is always calm and if u put an effort youll get a good grade
he talks in a very strange way kinda like a psychologist.. sometimes that kind of voice put me to sleep but overall he is a good teacher.. an easy B i guess
Okay teacher, you will get a good grade if you participate. Storytimes are essential to your grade (unless you A the other stuff). He's pretty cool but i get the feeling that he thinks he is a genius (although he is smart.. still -_______-) I feel he really wants to be a "cool" teacher to everyone. that doesn't appeal to ME.. just my two cents
A great guy. At times, he does make the class feel stupid, but overall he's moderately easy and fun.
STORYTIME!!! really amazing teacher. great stories - seems like a really interesting guy.
Recall diagrams are the fairest pop quizzes I have ever experienced.
I like how his syllabus is clear. The recall quizes are the first ones that I know I can do well on if I read. Nice goatee too.
