Mr. Lorentzen is hands down the best teacher I've ever had. I had him my junior and senior years, and he taught me more in one semester than I can remember learning throughout my education prior to that. He genuinely cares about his students, and is still willing to help them when they've gone on to college. He changed the way I read literature, and I would do anything to take one of his courses again.
I had Lorentzen my junior and senior year of high school at red wing and he was one of my favorite teachers. He made me get back into literature and is one of the main reasons I'm doing a english lit minor. Loves to have fun and see his students learn and talk about new ideas.
had him a few years ago, just thought i'd say he's the reason i'm minoring in english. ap lit is a fun class, take it if you can!
You'll do awesome if you think and write the same way he does. Don't dare to have your own opinion, he'll shoot you down and not let you forget it.
Great Teacher - in college now, couldn't survive w/o him
Mr. Lorentzen is a great teacher! He helped me become a better writer for college! Thanks!
Took two classes from him and learned a lot in them both. Many class discussions, some short (2-3 pg papers) Very helpful for those going into college.
Ask for students to disscuss works read in class, but only accepts view and ideas that go along with his own views and ideas.
