Mr.Best is AMAZING! I think if he handed assignments back peoples heads might explode! BTW if you want to do well in his class TALK!!!! If you join in discussions and participate in class you'll get an A. Handing in homework helps too, I think he works on a completion basis only. Marking aside, you need to take his class just to be around him and try and leech some of that incredible knowlege!

His lessons are both enjoyable and rewarding. I've learned so much despite the lack of written work. However, I wish he would hand back assignments every once in a while so that we have an idea of our strengths and weaknesses in English class.

I just finished Lit 12 and I'm SO glad I took it - Mr. Best made it a really wonderful experience, and, like somebody said before, really opens the world of literature for his students. He's a cool guy, funny, warm, patient, and yes - a walking encyclopedia (almost to a scary extent at times!) - but you can learn so much from him if you pay attention in his. Sometimes he goes off track, but it's all good - and be sure to raise your hand alot if you want a good mark, because he's somewhat old-fashioned :)

Mr. Best was one of the most amazing teachers that I have ever had. After going to university and entering the "real world" - you think back on highschool and consider who made that part of your life so special. Mr. Best opens up the world of literature to his students, and teaches in a way that keeps you interested. Both my older brother and myself were lucky enough to be in his classes. Some teachers are forgettable, some teachers make you never forget. Thanks, Mr. Best.

He's a good teacher overall. But i'm pretty sure he doesn't bother to mark homework/tests because we never get them back. A friend of mine asked to see her marks because she got a C+. He immediately boosted her to a B without showing her the marks.

More than just a teacher.Great storyteller, walking encyclopedia (meant as a compliment), and helpful person in general (warm and understanding attitude, etc.)...the list goes on.One of the handful of teachers at Churchill that can actually answer questions outside of course material (but nevertheless somewhat related), teach (duh), and keep you awake for a whole hour and a half(a feat accomplished by only the 1337est of true teachers).Would also make a fantastic history teacher in the place of Jeffe-*oops*

not sure if hes still teaching since i already graduated... but he was a very good teacher. i had him in gr11, so mayb hes different now. but while i was in his class, we had next to no homework, we wrote a few essays, and did some projects. i think the marks were mostly based on his impression... i did well, but i've heard that some ppl didnt so... he should be a university prof tho lol, i didnt get any notes. he knows his stuff^^ fun class!
