I really liked this teacher for Fiction, Drama and Poetry. His class is VERY simple; just read the books and (when you enter the poetry stage) do the research, and you'll easily make 90s. The essays are a bit tough because you can easily run out of time, but sometimes he'll let you stay after class to finish it and hand it in :) NOT for slackers, this class. Show up on time as well, because he won't wait for you if there's a quiz. Awesome teacher.
Had him for The Sixties. Like most English classes it's pretty dry. You do watch 3-4 movies, and read 3 books. His book quizzes are worth a lot but are super easy if you actually read the book. His in-class essays are a b*tch since the questions are often unclear and demand more time than the 2 hours given. The final project and essay are both pretty easy and standard.
Had him for 103 The Sixties.
I was usually 5 minutes late to class everyday from traffic, and by that time I would have missed the quiz done in class and there was no way to make it up.
Extremely boring class, which gives you no motivation to do the work, and I learned nothing.
His grading is complete crap, not to mention the essays which are made up of complete crap topics.
Teaches absolutely nothing, and only talks about how great the 60s were, and Vonnegut.
Would never recommend him
Steve was by far the worst teacher in the world. He comes across as a sweet old man. He may be at time, however, he is a really tough teacher. He doesn't have a grading scheme and his grades are really random and unjustified. I do not suggest you take him. His tests were practically impossible. Worst time of my life.
He is by far the worst teacher I have ever had. He is extremely preferential. If he does not like you, good luck. He has no grading scheme. Whatever he feels is justified, you will get with barely any proof as to why you go that grade. You literally watch movies 24/7 and then he gives you impossible essays to write and always ties in the movies. He is not approachable and I truly do not recommend him. I don't know about the other reviews, but he is definitely someone to avoid.
TAKE STEVEE'S CLASS HE IS THE BEST,VERY CHILL AND A GREAT PERSON! STRESS FREE CLASS
He's a good teacher. I would definitely recommend him! His class can get boring but if you do the work then you'll do great no doubt about it. Just a little warning ahead of time; he can be monotone at times.
He's a good teacher,but make sure you complete the assignments he assigns inclass.
I liked him, had him for 102 and having him for 103. Just read the book and do the essay and you will be fine.
Don't take him, DO NOT TAKE HIM!!! His grading is BS, he gives you a random mark and you can't argue back because he marks things on his perspective. He doesn't give outlines so you have no idea what to do during assignments and what he wants in particular.
dont kno why ppl hate on him. hes a chill guy and gives easy marks. all u do is watch 3 movies do 3 essays and 3 group discussions. its basically free points go get'em
Really easy marker, I wrote essays about absolutely nothing and got 85 . His class is not very interesting but it's an easy mark in the end.
Kinda boring at times and not flexible in marking... I suggest if you miss a lot of class not to take this course
SUPER easy marker, every thing I handed in was the worst thing I'd ever written and I ended with a 90. Always lets you out like an hour early, and the workload is nonexistant. Joke of a class.
Didn't think he was that bad. The class is really easy. Does give random marks though. Class can get kind of boring.
He seems to be boring but i mean, you dont DO ANYTHING in his class!! boring movies and 3 in-class essays, VERY EASY!! =)
I loved this guy!!! Yeah the class was a bit boring, but what are you here for Suuuuuuuuuuuch an easy marker, very little work to actualy, even less outside of class. Insta-pass. And he's so easy-going too...
SO BORING. Dullest class I have ever taken, but probably one of the easiest as well.
Funny guy with a really light work load besides reading. His assignments are pretty clear and flexible in terms of topics.
OMG!!! the only english class ive ever beem in that i actually love the books we read... I was pretty bad in english and i ended up getting an 82% in his class...class discussions kinda drag but at least he tries
Feedback on essays is not helpful at all (just randomly placed question marks) and the whole structure of the course is repetitive and boring; he seems like a very lazy teacher. If you don't like in-class essays, do not take!
Pretty easy I'd say, he's a hard marker on the essays and not very clear on what he wants in them, and the classes get monotonous. He has his funny random moments though.
very easy, reads to you in class :) tests and quizzes are easy, usually talks for an hour then lets you go, super easy
Awww!:( You guyss are sssooo mean! Steve's such a sweetie. Yes I must admit that class discussions aren't always fun, but he's always willing to help and I think he makes us read interesting books. He's superr NICE!
very boring and dull! you watch the most ancient movies and listen to him read, i would not take him again, i dont think i learned anything
a ridicously unfair marker and his class is the most boring english class I have taken in my life.
He s nice but boring as hell.If u wanna do minimum work and you are lazy take him.
its true that hes a KIND OF hard marker but if u are usuallly ok in english and you're willing to try a bit in the assignments then you'll do great. some people in my class were kind of annoying and really un-cooperative and so they hated him. kind of makes you feel bad for the guy cuz hes acctually really sweet. he knows what hes talking about and the atmosphere is relaxed and fun. great guy overall.
good teacher if your lazy and wanna coast thru the class with a good 65-70 % take him
He's a realy nice guy, but he's also a hard marker. Sometimes he's realy boring.
Really nice guy, the class is very relaxing. The books we read were really interesting, I like how he doesn't always expect a concrete answer, and he looks positively towards student's interpretations. At first it just seems so boring and pointless, but I really go into it. The essays and quizzes are laid out and it's easy to do well on everything. Mostly everything is done in class, just read at home.
you don't learn a lot and it's quite easy - but he's a nice guy and will help you if you got problems
He is a tough marker, but each mark he gives is to make us better at his classes. He is nice and sweet and helpful. Just don't mess around in his class.
He isn't exactly what I would call an easy marker, but he's SUPER nice! He's there to help you. Very softspoken and a sweetheart. I think he just expects everyone to be journalists
DOES NOT MARK WELL!!!!HIs class is not that bad but when you get work back watch out. He marks very unfairly
very easy english class, not an easy marker but not a hard marker. Actually does say interesting things. If u hate english and just want to get it over with take him. not much work
Very nice guy, I found the books interesting and class discussions really helped with the understanding of the books. show up, do work and pass. easy as that.
Gives NO feedback, doesn't really teach, just kinda shows movies and has class discussions where you always talk not him, so its hard to know what's important.
He's actually hillarious and really fun, but is a hard and unfair marker.
You WILL fall asleep in his class. He is a VERY unfair marker, he underlines things on essays and you have no idea why. Just plain bad.
Nice guy...but boring class. Sometimes a hard marker but does his best to help you out. takes attendance. the books he choses are boring, but he's a nice guy...
he's really nice and gives you a million chances to hand things in, take th time to listen and read the books and youll do really well
he might be a little monotone but hes not boring if you actually care to listen what he has to say is really interesting and smart
He's very nice. The class is a bit boring but he grades fairly and the books he choses are really interesting and good to read.
I had a great summer school last year. Good choices of books for reading.
Very nice and patient guy, he is a devoted teacher and really enjoyes teaching. He is a pretty hard marker but if you read the books your all set.
very boring class, but a very nice guy. He will help you out if you ask him, will try to get you to pass.
Extremely easy english class...you dont have to show up...will give a million chances
i dont know why people have a problem with him, he is a very cool guy, good man
