Mr. Delaney gives out more homework than honors, and grades all of it as well as wanting you to keep a planner for everything you read and creating graphic organizers for the books you do read. His vocabulary tests also have words on them that he does not give you material to study for and his excuse is that you saw the word once so you should know about it. Does not go to his own extra help and shows up late to period 1 every day. He probably forgets that students have classes other than his.

I had him last year and im very happy i didnt switch out. He disliked me in class because i didnt do much work but was very nice out of class and helped me whenever i needed it. the work load is alot but it really prepares you for 9th grade.

honestly his class was so hard but im the kind of student who does all the work and works hard so yeah i got low exam grades but my overall grade in class was pretty average if you just do what he says and volunteer in class, he acts like a know it all so all i did was sass him but since i did the work it was fine and didnt matter, his exams were so hella hard that when i took the final i legit got a hundred cuz it felt like elementry school work compared to what you have to do in his class.

Mr.Delaney, I believe is a teacher who is too underrated. Don't get me wrong, he isn't the best English teacher, but he does provide students the skills they need in the future when they are in high school and after that. The only thing that I think is a downfall is the big learning curve. It is hard to succeed in Mr.Delaney's English class, even if you put your greatest effort. But overall, Mr.Delaney is a teacher who is still able to educate his students.

I'm actually shocked by the majority of these comments. Remember, he has FEELINGS. In my opinion, he is an excellent teacher. He may come off as hard/strict, but he means well. It's really not hard to get a good grade if you do your work. He's actually a simple grader! You don't need to be the smartest kid, but show him effort!! He can't baby students, because what's a student going to gain out of that? Plus, he is a friendly guy. If you're nice to him, he'll be nice to you. Simple life rule!

Not an easy class by any means. Challenges and grades hard. Class is very hard to be in all year and tests are harder than they need to be. A lot of homework but at the end of the year you are pretty prepared for the final
