Easiest teacher you could've gotten. Get ready for a year with essentially two essays per quarter, a few fake tests, and maybe 5 homeworks. I'm not at all kidding. Most of the time will be spent with Rudin flying off the topic at hand, only to start rambling with students (usually about how technology is taking over and how Orwell is rolling in his grave). For the most part, just keep quiet unless spoken to. If you do that, you can basically do whatever the hell you want in class.
Lets just say if your looking for an easy way out in the English-grade department, Rudin is the guy for you. All you have to do is keep quiet in his class, he likes it when you don't talk unless you're being spoken to by him.
Although he doesn't teach as much as other teachers, he does have his own methods to it. Most of the time, we read a book in class and he analyzes it. His analyzations are actually in-depth and dependable- (he actually takes time to think about the books outside of school). Then there is a class discussion about the themes of the book. And that's basicallly the whole class. It's a simple class. Homework is mostly given on long vacations and tests are rarely given at all. He's a nice guy.
the WORST and LAZIESTTTTTTTTT teacher ever...u wont learn anything if he likes u u get a gud grade even if u dont do any work and vise versa...dont ask any questions and dont remind him of assignments and u will pass with great grades
Laziest teacher I had. There is no hw or classwork and when he "assigns" them, he never collects them or looks over them. If he knows who you are and he likes you, you will get a good grade.
favorite quates "Get in there"," or else ill nock you grade down, "to dean woody"
very lazy easy grade he looks like a hobo but hes really nice
I don't think he ever actually read our essays. Why? because he NEVER handed any of them back!
He's a really great teacher, but he usually drifts off topic. Class will never get boring with him.
Seriously, I always wondered how did he even get a teacher's license. Everytime he's in a bad mood he takes it out on us. He never teaches. All we do is read. Always coming to class late. I really hate it when he tells us to shut up when we're asking him something. All his tests and quizzes are essays. I also hate it when he eats in class. He licks his fingers and then afterwards he touches our papers.
Mr. Rudins a cool guy. Makes me laugh, and he makes english fun
cool teacher! he always do random things to make you laugh. hes kind of lazy but means well.
Mr.Rudin teaches but no one understand!!!Show up late to class everyday, always says JUST SIT DOWN AND BE QUIET! NO QUESTION!
I learn nothing but sleep in his class. Why do students even bother going to his class?
u kiddin me? this dude is great...i had him 9th period and i went to his class twice a week, the times i did go i slept in class. i received an 85....seriously if u think this is a bad teacher u really need to take a hike, i mean its english class cmon
If you want something to look back at and laugh about when you think of Tech, this is the guy; aimlessly rambles,brings up the craziest topics, does really pointless things like make you pay attention when nothing is happening, argues with students, talks to himself, eats in class,randomly frightens students with animal noises, occasionally remembers that he's an english teacher.
worst english teacher ever. has no set schedule and is really unorganized. i also hate how he always tell students to talk louder. also seems to favor certain people
OMG can he be called a teacher, so today i got kicked out of his class because in the middle he said "i was in the diner and i made up your tests" and he pulls out a stack of napkins with questions on it. Of course i cant help but break out into hysterical laughter. Someone has to explain the concept of tests on a napkin to me because i am still laughing
he talked about christianity all period... it's good because he believe and learned the true reason of Jesus. i believe he has a bright future ahead now that he believes
I had him in freshman year and at first he fires questions at us everyday and my head ends up ringing after class. but then he's actually very easy LOL and he craves for chocolate 9th period.
i love this guy... he delves into some themes a little too thoroughly but he means well. sometimes lazy but tries to teach some things really well if he's excited about them. huugggeeee boxing fan, bring up Ali and you might just get his respect.
sigh... the general idea is that if he doesnt respect his students, his students aren't going to respect him... so learn that, mr. rudin... and maybe u'll be a better teacher... dont treat your students like a bunch of "punks", as u like to call them... i hope you do realize that nobody takes you seriously because you dont take us seriously
Best teacher I could of ever had, mainly because he was an easy pass. Didnt do any work half of the time and he would have students do his grades. There would be days when i was in his morning classes where he would jus let us relax. Best teacher
If you knew the tricks, u practically don't need to go to class. I dunno about now, but if you had him '04, it was a FREE 85 on your transcript. One thing though, don't get too noticable in class and you're good.
easiest english teacher ever! no work at all and easy 80 or 85!
Rudin is pretty cool if you participate in his class, and sometimes he tries to be tough giving us quizzes and collecting hw. but i doubt they affect our grade.
lol..mr. rudin-i taught the class for him omg..he used to make me answer every question cuz i was the only who cared to read- i liked his ideas tho very deep
cant even call him a teacher. makes a student do all grades for him. i taught class better. just cuz he doesnt know what hes talkin about doesnt mean we don't.
I used to think he was boring, he still is. But you get to sleep and he doesn't mind. Very easy, barely any HW or tests. Get on his good side, easy 90.
i had him 3 times 3 terms i didnt do anything = 3 85s O_O. o well lol easy grade talk once in a while and ull get a 90 or higher i was too lazy. no work done
snoozefest..extremely easy but you learn nothing..1stmp you get an 85 2nd you pick your grades and 3rd he actually does them! he knows a lot but doesnt apply it
overall, hes not a bad teacher. his discussions r cool. but sometimes, it is VERY BORING. =O
most brilliant English teacher, but not a good one...big on philosophy and allegories...be quiet in class and you'll get an 85...you can learn ALOT with him
omg he is SOOOO annoying i hate him hes arrogant and obcessd wit technology!!! i fall asleep in his class wich is sad considering i love reading and riting.
he repets alot of stuff. asks us to laugh in class then gets mad at us. dont udnertsand much NEVER grades tests jsut be good last day of mrking period
he's pretty cool....sometimes class discussions can be interesting....
soooooooooooooooooooooooooo boring. unbelievable. doesnt care if you sleep. dont matter how good you are -higher grade every time. sooooooo easy.
good teacher but repeats same word like 10 times... he collects everyones report cards so he can check whether or not his grade blends in with the other ones...
Goes off topic too much.repeats the same things a lot. Allmy friend did was fool around. Mr.Rudin moved him a couple of times and he still got higher grade
REPEATS DA SAME THING OVER AND OVER CLASS IS DA HADEST AND BORINGEST
People cut his class EVERY SINGLE DAY n they still get perfect attendance n 90s. He doesnt take attendance n he writes his notes on napkins! Easy but borin
One of the best teachers. Loves books he chooses and writes great college recommendations!
his obsession with technology annoys me so much and never grades our stuff but he's absent alot so we get alot of free periods
yo he is DA MAN, great teacher one of the best in the department. Respects students unlike alot of other teachers
I don't know if Mr. Rudin still teaches at Tech (I transfered out), but he was, by far, one of the greatest teachers ever. I had him for a semester in 9th grade
i keep on fallin asleep in his class! he's so boring and he keeps on taking pplz stuff to make it seem that it belongs to him! he's the worst!
i miss him sooo much. he was the greatest. we used to have the most interesting
waste of my time; u learn nothing in his class that is worthwhile
he's always babbling on about something offtopic and never grades any papers!
yes, agreed, if not a writer he should at least be a philosphy teacher
very other english teacher hates him but great with the students
if everybody knows these...then y is he stil teaching... he never reads work !!
make sure he doesnt know your name, that way you definitely pass.
mad funny and cool teacher; and the best part is that u dont do ne work andupass
he repeats a topic so many times. it's annoying. i mean, we get the point!
should be an aspiring writer, not an english teacher
I really enjoyed his offtopicness, very much like college
