Mr. Boswell is an awful AP Lang teacher. He thinks very highly of himself, but he contradicts himself often and his class is extremely boring.

People who are lazy and generally not interested in film wont like this class or Mr. Boswell. The work seems like a lot but he is cool with late work because he understands and values the work that shows effort and a desire to learn. Great teacher.

Mr. Boswell has been my teacher for the past three years and the past four years for many of my classmates. His teaching style is not gentle but it is effective. I feel I have a grasp of concepts and attitudes surrounding film and the film community, for the most part from his candid demeanor and honest feedback. Anyone seriously considering pursuing film should take this class first.

I have so much respect for Mr.Boswell. I honestly don't know how I could have gone through high school without him. He's a mentor, but only if you are actually serious about your work. He's sassy and funny and passionate about his work. He'll help you discover the beauties of film as an art form and teach you if you are willing to learn. Critics are harsh yet necessary, this is really a class for people who are passionate about film, its not really an elective even if the credits are.

Does not to well to work to understand students when there are misunderstandings between him and the teacher. He is nice when in the right mood, but if not can be hard to communicate with.

He's an insightful, challenging teacher, but can be incredibly unpleasant to deal with. He takes himself way too seriously for a high school teacher/director.

I don't have a drama or Boswell English student, but go to BCC's productions. I'd really like to see something not so avant-garde for a change. It's getting weird and unenjoyable.

Mr. Boswell is the single most frustrating teacher at B-CC. Not only do students learn nothing in his classes, except about his self-righteous opinions, but Boswell resents the success of his students. Bowell has turned many students away from theater.
