Smith is great. He tells the funniest stories and his class was hard, but worthwhile. As for the not tolerating other opinions, he is just teaching the standard literary views, not his own.
Mr. Smith is the best teacher ever. I think he was my favortie teacher at brandywine. i have him for Honors English. He is very helpful, he is funny, and a al aorund co0ol guy. he taught me alot.,.,.
he is used to teaching ap and honors and me, cp, i think he's mixing us up. he gives us work and my friend (honors student) is doing EVERYTHING the same. i'm prolly going to fail, i hope not though
Great teacher and a great class. Wish he did not have to go.
He's a pretty cool guy, but his many years of unquestioned teaching have made him pompous and overly pretentious. He is so convinced that his interpretation of every pieve of literature is the definitive one that everything he tells you in class will sound condescending. Also, I got an "A" on every assignment (and turned everything) one marking period and ended up with a "C." How does that happen?
The best teacher i have ever had. Love his class hope to have him again.
He is a cool guy! A really good teacher that knows his stuff and challenges his students. English was one of my favorite classes because he would teach us so much and keep it fun by "digressing" on a certain subject.
cool person.... bad teacher. lecture like notes, which can be good to prepare us for college, but not if the only right answer on the tests is exactly what he said in his lecture.
I've only had him for about 4 weeks, and i already know he's the best teacher ever. he's helpful in many ways, and very funny and easy going, but when it comes to schoolwork, he's into it and takes it seriously. He's awesome!!!!!!!!
I will never forget anything about The Red Badge of Courage... ever... because of this guy. Amazing teacher-- best I've had in 11 years of schooling.
Mr. Smith is one of my favorite teachers to date. I've never learned so much in one class. He is so intersting.
He's an awesome teacher, very difficult, but fair. I definately recommend, prepares you for college, at least better then most teachers.
Mr Smith, going to college won't be the same cause i won't get to hear on the morning announcements. I'll miss u.
He rescued me from an incompetent teacher (11th grade) proved to me that anybody can accomplish anything. 2nd best I ever had at BHS
I agree, that he is really hard. BUt he is always there to help you. when ever Iam having troble, he helped me. he is really cool
Mr. Smith is the BEST teacher that i have EVER had. I love him! He is an amazing person, and a great teacher. And his band is also amazing.
Mr. Smith is the best English teacher I have ever had, and his band is surprisingly good.
Mr.Smith is a great teacher. The LA is hard...but he is always there to help with your thesis and trying to figure out things in the story. A+ teacher.
Unit tests are impossible. He's the most arrogant and condescending teacher I've ever had. I've never gotten less than a B and I have a D. Stay Away!!!!!!
He was the first teacher that I have had that made English fun, and after him I had Ms. Jolly. 11th and 12th grade english isn't bad at all. He is a great guy
He is the only teacher that will actually prepare you for college!!!!!! Hes hard, but its well worth the long study hours
Best teacher I've ever had. I enjoyed every class we had, except the oral book reports.
Awesome teacher. Very interesting class discussions. Intelligent and funny man.
Mr. Smith is the best!! I love every moment of his class! He's interesting, funny, and knowledgable. Pay attention, and you'll be fine!
Mr. Smith is an excellent teacher and challenging. However, there is some information he has on college english courses that is not necessarily true. Great guy
Mr. Smith rules. He's also really funny! Although the year just started i can tell that i'm going to learn a lot. He's very smart, and teaches very well. :)
English bes fun and i did good and learnt alot init. and mr smith is off the heezy for sheezy
Way cool guy, knows English as well as other random facts. You will learn to write well, so take his class!
all that said he didnt prepare them or didnt teach well, still havent realized how amazingly he prepares students. funniest man in the school. dont miss out.
Get through his course, and you'll never have problems with college english (at least if you're not an english major).
great teacher and person, always pushed us to our potential.
He gave so much work that I barely had time to do my college essays. These should come first. Maybe he should allow a whole week only to work on college essays
best teacher you could have in the school. excellent preparation for college writing courses, amazing guy as well.
Doesnt prepare you well for college. Also the most arrogant person I've ever met
Pay attention and it will pay off...don't be a baby and you'll do fine!
Class seems impossible at times... and is. You learn to write well, if anything
Hard, but you learn alot.Few total grades,no homework grades adds to difficulty.
REALLY hard, but worth the work. you'll learn a LOT.
I love this man more than anything- he's and amazing teacher and person.
