Mr. Goethals is a good teacher, he is nice, kinda funny, and overall a pretty good teacher. His class is a little boring, but that's ok, as long as u have someone to talk to sitting near you.

This is a class where you do a lot of reading and writing, but he is a good teacher. In terms of writing you really will not learn much since he rarely truly reads what you write (except for the occasional essay). But reading and analysis is something he really goes into and it prepares you for next year when you take more reading intensive class, like AP Lang or Amer. Lit. He can be kinda corny and cringey at times but he means well. His exams are easy too. I got 100% on his final.

His class is pretty easy and am currently with an A in his class which is because his class is nonsense. Honestly the journals that we do, he doesn't even check them which is why all I do is write about anything that comes to mind. He is an easy teacher but I would not recommend. His voice is so funny too!

OK Teacher 3.7/5. Very nice and chill just don't get on his bad side. For H.Am.Lit he gives homework almost everyday (which I don't like / im not used to) but his TA just checks off the HW so you can't write nonsense and still get credit. 'Journals' every beginning of class are also checked off obliviously and my friend even wrote it in another language once. Teaches interesting topics and explains good but its just a boring vibe in the class. Tests are OK but you'll actually have to study :/

Mr. Goethals is actually a very good guy and you can tell he stays on top of his lesson plans and teaches everyday. His class is extremely repetitive. Be prepared for fact idea charts daily. The class is very simple to ace. Answer in quantity, yes I meant quantity, and read the book. His jokes get VERY old and his constant attempt at "teenage lingo" is annoying. Make sure you participate, it's a good portion of your grade.

Not altogether unique, but very punny and understanding. Thinks he's a comedian and not much to look forward to in his class, but all in all, he's great at what he does: TEACH.

easy class, but a horrible teacher. Grades everything by length and not content. I'd rather go back to Fosters and get a C than a B. He only know how to teach by the book.

Unfair grading system. He grades on length and not what is in the writing. Long doesn't necessarily mean better.

This class is pretty chill. We didn't get that much homework but he grades quantity, not quality. And he doesn't tell you what's wrong with your essays and how to improve it. But the class is fun! [:
