Michael (not Micheal) Harvey is a hard-working individual who is knowledgeable in a remarkable number of areas. He is humorous (or at least let him keep thinking he is), and he does his best to make class interesting while at the same time push for higher-level thinking and discussion-based instruction. All these complaints about hard grading are surely made by students who turn in bad papers, and he is able to clarify things IF YOU ASK. Sleeping in his class = missing out on meaningful thought.

One of the worst english teachers i've ever had in my entire. We learn literally nothing useful whatsoever in that class. No grammar/vocabulary or anything actually useful. He just tells us useless stories about his life which nobody cares about as usually half the class is asleep when you look around. He gives us two assignments in an entire quarter, gives everyone a 70. If you read this, please give us more assignments or don't grade the only assignments you give so harshly.

I though Mr.Harvey was a fantastic teacher who would go in-depth with all the work we had. I personally loved everything about his class last year, his bicycle, his blazers, and his stories.

Mr. Harvey's class is a very good clas... if you have a lot of homework to do. Months on end, you could just be sitting in his room "working" on your World Lit paper.

Like him as a person, dislike him as a teacher. He's fun to talk to and has a good sense of humor, but we're unprepared for our IB World Lit papers and such.

Harvey is a decent teacher, but I wish we didnt have to do vocab, and I wish we spent less time on details. Picking everything apart ruins the story.

Although he says he values everyones opinions..it really comes down to his opinion or no opinion. If you like picking novels apat for weeks youll like Harvey.

mr.harvey only concerns himself with his own opinions and thoughts when we're reading a novel, he'll never validate the students thoughts.

Harvey is a pretty easy teacher. Its not too difficult to get good grades in his class. However, when discussing a novel or poem or something of that nature he drones on and on about something for 15 minutes that could be explained clearly in 2.

Hes very fun but in a way sometimes odd- and I dont necessarily mean in the awesome way. He helps a lot with grammar- dont hate him for it later its a blessing.
