06/17/12 - All this teacher does is ramble. She gets up in front of the class and talks anne talks and talks. She never does group activities or anything; just lectures. In 11th grade I felt as though I had learned a ton in my AP english class! Senior year I learned squat in AP english with Ms. Boaz. If you get Ms. Boaz your senior year and want a boring year full of no prep for college, stay in her class. If you actually want to learn, switch out! Show More Show Less

11/29/11 - one day while i fall asleep in this class this poor old woman is just going to keel over and no one in the class will even notice sadly. that said, shes a very interesting individual, who can be dry and boring some days, but show sparks of coolness other days. people say this class is easy because she doesnt assign much hw, but when she does it is tedious and pointless, and i honestly dont think she grades any of our assignments, just gives us a grade she feels we deserve.

01/22/11 - A former college professor, she models her class after lectures on works and other aspects of English Literature. Unfortunately it's not enough to appeal to almost all of her students and doesn't appear to be the most effective method of teaching seniors. Show More Show Less

05/31/09 - almost always runs out of time in class after going off topic and is late giving back assignments. On the other hand, she is nice and pretty laid back in class Show More Show Less

07/29/07 - Dr. Boaz is one of my favorite people on campus. Some people can't stand her because she "doesn't grade papers and assignments very fast". These people are too uptight. I was in no rush to get my papers back. The thing I loved the most is how deep she would go into the significance of literary elements. What some people assume is rambling is usually intriguing background information to elp us understand the context.of the writing. Lord of the flies discussions were often moving. I loved her class!

02/21/07 - Dr. Boaz's job is to teach English, and she happens to be very good at that. The problem is the work she assigns is often very tedious and isn't good for learning off of. Her tests are hard and it took her 4 months to hand us back the essays we wrote in October. Sometimes she gets upset over small things and yells at us, and sometimes she goes off and discusses random topics. Pretty good teacher, but the class not so much. Show More Show Less

02/11/07 - Doc B is basically the most intuitive teacher I've ever had. You ask her one question, and you get back seven different reasonings to a single response. Her class makes you think, and you learn an incredible amount of stuff. The only bad things are that, like previously stated, she's bad about getting back assignments, and some of her assignments are difficult. Even some tests, namely finals, are rather painstaking.
