Greatest English class I have ever taken in high school. It was quite the change of pace for me after taking 3 years of hardcore honors English. Essays aren't too critically graded and vocab tests should be easy as long as you study. If you are interested in philosophy, you are lucky to get Mr. Jagd as a teacher. Many of the class material revolves around different philosophical schools of thought. I hope other teachers can learn from Mr. Jagd instead of teaching strictly core material.

Whoever posted last must be in my class, cause sometimes we just DON'T leave for lunch because we're too busy talking to Mr. Jagd. His class is amazing, and he's one of my favorite people, teacher or not.

Everything is connected, everything adds up...some days nothing seems to happen but then I think about it all day. Math is my thing so its hard to imagine a literature class worth anything at all but this one is hard to leave for lunch.

It's not hard to do well in his class. Anyway, I never knew what writing was about until I took his class. How about that? You actually learn something!
