he doesnt do ANYTHING. i havent learned anything this year. we've read books, sure, but i havent learned anything useful. another big issue is that he doesnt know anyones name. its already almost the end of the school year and i think he only knows about 5 kids' names. still an easy grade so i am not complaining.

Great guy. Had him for English and he clearly knows a lot about English lit, poetry, and drama. Overall boring class. You go through the same procedure every day (do now, discuss, talk more about do now, group work, share group work). Repeats the same stories. Very old fashioned guy. Tests are pretty easy if you read the book and spark or cliffnoted the quotes. Some questions are pretty specific. Participating isnt necessary since he gives everyone the same grade on it. Regardless, easy 95+

he's really nice and funny but he doesn't grade much which kind of sucks because your grade will stay the same until like 2 minutes before the marking period ends, also pretty much gives everyone an 88 on their tests

He's actually pretty chill. His class is a dub. You do the do now, the share, then do group work, and then you leave. But his quizzes are annoying because he puts a very specific question and people keep getting 80s. He's really nice as long as you're nice to him. He actually has pretty interesting stories in class and he can rap. Yeah he raps in class about Westside Story. Just say good morning to him and just be nice, he's not bad.

His class can be very boring sometimes. As I remember, he often gave the class a Do Now to work on for 5-15 minutes, then went over that "do now" for 10 minutes, choosing volunteers to share their responses. Then, he would go on to lecture for the rest of the class, or talk more about the do now. He has a lot of quotes and stories that he repeats a lot, but his classes are pretty interesting if you don't care about his monotone voice. His tests are really specific on the readings.

Great teacher, amazingly entertaining with all his references and allusions to music, literature, and theatre. Not a hard class if you'll stay awake and actually study the notes he hands out. Nice, hilarious, kind old man,

He is an easy teacher and funny but his system is a bit weird thought but hes awsome. He doesnt penalize you for everything, but you have to be fair and serious with him to get a good grade.

he is a very interactive teacher and will grade much on class participation, so talk a lot and make intelligent commments. it is very hard to get a very good grade in his class (high 90s) but is also hard to get a bad grade in his class (80s)

He picks favorties to have a conversation with during class. Most of your grade is from his tests since he doesn't remember anyone who doesn't speak 50 times per class. Pretty boring per sé.

He refers to a stale House quote too much - it's so stale I've forgotten what it is... A word to the wise: it's simply impossible to cut his class without hearing something about it.

He quotes tv shows (house/csi) way too much. He is repetative, but an easy grader. He/his class is boring and he has many small pet peeves, but he isn't a bad teacher, just a little picky.
