Mr. Alston is one of the best teachers I've ever had. In the beginning of the year, his class may be a bit confusing in terms of understanding exactly what he wants from analysis and assignments, but as the year progresses, his critiques make more sense. He made me aware of what it means to completely analyze a text. To mean exactly what you say in a thesis, to articulate your idea across audiences and support it. One of the most underrated teachers at SPHS. Be grateful if you're in his class.

To be completely honest, he is a good person but I hate his class. It seems like we haven't done but one thing in the month and a half that we've had him.

I think he is a good teacher, and doesnt let himself get stepped on by others. His evil ways are actually funny and enjoying

His SAT class is a complete joke, as well as his AP English class. None of his students have EVER passed the AP exam, so he apparently isn't doing his job the way he should.

His teaching methods are not only unorthodox but also a necessity. If you are to do more than just surviving the world we live in, I suggest you pay more attention in his class.

Evethough many people dissagree with Alston's teaching methods. His methods help you with your essay and the presentations are enjoyable.
