I took an adv. class, but it felt more like a general. I plan on taking AP next year, and i dont feel prepared at all! There is no homework, but he does talk in a monotone. Boring but easy.
He doesn't control a class very well. But he usually ends up giving you a pretty good grade in the end.
You'll have some interesting convo's, but he's not a a very good teacher. You read a lot of literature, write essays, and take hard multiple choice tests. I certainly learned very little.
He does a lot of lecturing and assigns essays or gives hard tests occasionally. We had some very interesting (off topic) conversations however. Can't say I improved significantly at all in english.
