Mr Holwerger is a nice guy. But he rarely gave us any notes and spent most of his time on his computer while playing an audiobook. His quizzes are very difficult and he blames his students for performing poorly.
Mr. Holweger is a decent guy, but a horrible teacher. He commonly gives quizzes minutes after reading the materials in class, and is useless when answering questions about what we are reading. Papers are primarily written about feelings and emotions compared to literature. In addition to his lack of preparation he is constantly losing students quizzes and essays. Be prepared for for 2 or more quizzes a week.
It is no surprise that he is being demoted from teaching AP. He only cares about the basketball team, yet their record is dismal at best. I learned more in my sixth grade English class than I did in this course. I didn't feel prepared whatsoever for the AP exam and preparation was completely left to my own devices. To quote him "It's not my job to prepare you for the AP exam, it is your job". I cannot tell you difference between adage and abstract but I know every detail his personal life.
Good guy and likes to be there. Little obsessive with u2 though. Good ap english teacher
One of my least favorite teachers. Spends about 5% of the class every day actually talking to the class about what needs to be done, and the rest is spent doing whatever he feels like doing which is mostly sitting on the computer sending e-mails. Terrible organization; can't remember how many times he has misplaced one of my essays telling me to make another copy.
Mr Holweger honestly attempted to motivate our class but it is difficult to stay motivated in his class when he comes to class almost every day without the materials he allegedly prepared for a lesson. Throughout the entire school year there were probably fewer than 10 instances where we were given a worksheet that was printed out before class. Another issue that made it difficult to stay motivated was the fact that he spent probably 40 percent or more of his time on his comeputer sending emails
Mr. Holweger made ap English the most miserable class I've ever taken. He wastes time in class and piles on the homework.
Mr. Holweger was the best English teacher i have ever had. I was a foreign exchange Student at Springboro High and he really influenced my life and taught me to always be on time :D
Best English teacher I had pre-college (actually taught us how to take notes) now I'm a middle school English teacher haha
Having him for AP English as a Senior he rocked. Helped me to be better prepared for college as an English Major!
