Tough class but it really helped me improve the way a read in write.
He picks favorites and I don't think I learned nothing in his class besides the story of Romeo and Juliet. He is not a good high school teacher at all and is very mean.
Rich Stavar is by far the best teacher I have ever had. He is caring, thoughtful, and brilliant. I would recommend listening to every piece of advice he gives you. Mr. Stavar is a wonderful person who will make you grow extensively if you listen.
Once you figure out how he wants you to write, the class is rewarding and really fun. Only take it if you're willing to work, though.
Man - take advice from a graduate of Stavar's classes and TAKE HIS CLASS! He will seriously help you so much for college. He was so tough, but really fun too.
Stavar knows literature. If you take his advice, you will write like a god.
