Mr Polster has changed my life for the better. He was my home base since freshman year and it was really cool to grow up in his classroom.Taking his honer's English class my junior year was such a god time. I fell in love with novels, poetry, and music whilst I perched atop a desk. Senior year I took creative writing and with his guidance I discovered a love and talent for words. His classes are full of laughter, music, art, nature hikes, and learning. I'm going to miss my perch when I graduate.
The easiest and best English class you can take. When the weather gets nice, we go outside a few time a week and "absorb the nature around us"(or just play on our phones). Sparknotes and wikipedia will have you covered for 98% of the tests and quizzes. "Class discussions" are really just lectures, and he's not that great about handling interpretations that disagree with his, but he tries to act like he's okay with those ideas. BEWARE - never say anything bad about Holden Caulfield.
The easiest class I've ever taken. This is 10 times easier than 10 cp was. He just talks, and if you repeat what he says on the tests and essays, you get A+ grades.
Polster is the best teacher ever, he is one of the teachers who are down to earth and you can talk to him about your life.
Class is super easy. You can sparknote everything. For essays, all you have to do is repeat what he tells you and use words he likes (patriarchy, binaries, paradigm, mores). If you try to come up with something new or have different ideas than he does, you won't do well, so don't bother. He hates Mondays, so sometimes you do nothing on those days, just listen to music. Nice guy with some good stories.
I took 2 of Mr. Polster's classes, and he changed my life. His lectures are mind blowing, the works he selects are enlightening, and he really makes his students think critically and dig deep. Great guy, and helped my writing improve dramatically. I will always remember him as my favorite high school teacher.
best teacher of all time, i reccomend that u take his class, try and request him, ull have the best time of ur life
The best English teacher I have ever had. I hope he gets hired!!
