He doesn't have terribly high standards, which doesn't encourage growth as a student, but is a nice GPA booster (for me, I think he grades based on how much he likes you as a person). Super nice, very funny, class was fun.
I got WORSE in english last year. He had a NEGATIVE effect on my writing skills. And you are not allowed to have your own opinion on a book in class. You must agree with him
probably the worst teacher i've ever had. narrow minded, grades on opinions, and doesn't really seem like he's read the books he tries to talk about.
He is a hard teacher but an amazing person! He makes English class a lot of fun.
good teacher, funny guy, tests require you to connect the dots, but is fair minded
Funny guy and good teacher as long you pay attention in class. Doesn't overanalyze English like some of the teachers at the school but does understand the subject very well.
He tries to be funny, but he really isn't. You can't have your own opinion in his class, ever. He won't accept anything he doesn't agree with. Just not a good teacher.
He is pretty much an awful teacher. Sometimes he's worse than others, but his refusal to listen to new ideas and his inability to teach how to write a "provable" thesis cancels out his occasional wit. He also makes fun of stu
This teacher showed a complete lack of professional courtesy by handing back assignments 6-8 weeks after they had been handed in. By that time, other papers had been due and the students had no idea
He's very funny, but his refusal to go along with any interpretation of a book/poem/whatever other than his own is annoying.
1997-1998 Soph English - This guy rocks. He has a fund for new markers, make sure you donate. His impersonation of Eathan Frome made me understand the book. Summer - great flick - he explains it well too. Adams is a great sub
jerry is absolutely a horrible explainer and you have to pretty much teach yourself the curriculum. good luck
unclear on what he wants, everyone always feels unprepared for tests, but he is a nice person
AHH, he was so bad!!!! I hated the class and dreaded it every day. He is so unhelpful and just says go write an essay without giving instructions
Hard; what an AE teacher should be. I love it when he makes fun of kids (all in good fun).
Mr mcdonald. what else is there to say, this man is the funniest goof in the school systems these days
he's such a goofball. the class itself is really fun but he takes forever to grade stuff and doesn't teach...at all.
not a bad guy but terrible at explaining and very unclear on directions
The perfect English teacher for people who are laidback - not too easy but not too hard
Best ever. Ask him for his Ethan Frome impersonation! Also ask for "Adams" he'll know what it means. - Class of 2000 - (McDonald - where's my $12 tip?!)
Class of 2000....McDonald was great....what are these fools talking about??
Full of himself and unclear in his expectations. Don't try to produce essays that make sense, just put in some cheesy jokes and he'll love it.
