Living legend. You will learn everything you thought you knew about literature, and so much that you never thought you would.

Mr. White's classes are never easy, but he is brilliant. His class will make you smarter at the end of the year.

This is the best teacher I ever had. He is BRILLIANT. Mr. White is an example of the greatness a person can achieve with brains and hard work. Every day of APE with him was a blessing, and I learned so much, not just about English, but about the present, the past, and how to live. Wow, Hamlet...good memories. And The Fountainhead...best book I ever read. APE's a lot of work, but it's worth it (especially the journal assignments). You will leave APE older and wiser.

Mr. White is the shizness. Easiest class in the school. All you do is sit around and read or do the workbook. Easiest class in the school. You'll enjoy his humor and knowledge. Easiest class in the school.

I had Mr. White back in 1988-89, and to this day, I still remember things he taught me. Consider yourself extremely lucky to have this man as your instructor.

Mr. White is a literary genius but he forms his opinion of your writing very early (for AP). Remember show, don't tell.

Warning...his stories evolve over time...but reciting Chaucer in middle English really impresses wasted people...overall, an his classes amused me:)
