I really regret not listening to the people on here.... I took the course anyway and now I'm suffering dearly. This is more of a course about how to be an actor than a proper English course.
DON'T TAKE HIM YOULL REGRET ITTTTTTTT, HES BORING AND HIS TESTS MAKE NO SENSE
LOL k funny thing i got 95 w/him.I saw rating4this + was mortified also cuz its shakespeare+i thought i was gonna fail EPICLY.All i did was SLEEP 85% of time;i SWEAR!Just listen+copy board=PASS TESTS
stewart blott is a nice guy, very patient i must say... but honestly DO NOT TAKE HIM!!!! I WAS SO DEPRESSED WHEN I WOULD SIT IN HIS CLASS! DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT!!!!!!!
oh my sweeet lord,, i hate english i hate english becasue of this teacher the worst 4 hours in my week :| like you fall asleep without knowing and dont let me get started with his writing .:|
Very very nice, but incredibly boring. His Shakespeare class made me sleep , however, he's super sweet. THANK GOD I PASSED!
DO NOT TAKE THIS TEACHER. He has changed my entire view of english class, and definately not in a good way...imposible to pay your full attention in this class, sleep is inevitable.
I took Into to College english liking english, and came out hating it. whatever you do DO NOT TAKE HIM if you're looking to either not fall asleep, actually learn something, or get good marks.
I wouldn't say he's a bad teacher but he's very boring! Can't hear a word he says so you have to sit in front! His writing is illegible! Tests are long but he's an easy marker.
Very confusing teacher and speaks faintly. I suggest sitting right in front of him or you wouldn't understand anything. Tests are hard and long, but he grades really easy (write what he said in class)
Hes a really good english teacher.. he is really really boring and yu get lost in what he says... but yu barely have any homework or exams and hes an easy marker.go 2 class n ull pass
Interesting teacher, but not an exciting one. I fell asleep many times and felt sorry that I didn't listen to all the suggestions on this board. BUT he is a very clever guy, and I might take him again
He wasn't that bad! I took him for my spring07 course. True he is boring. But listen to him when he talks about a specific scene, watch the movies instead of reading the book and you should be fine!! I never read any of the books, didn't do the last assignment and got an 81% I skipped his class a few times too... He's quite an easy marker in my opinion. Just test no presentations, he tells you what's on the test by listening to his lectures!!!!!!
I took this guy's Shakespeare class. He himself is really laid back, down-2-earth and the atmosphere is calm and relaxing. Considering the topic of the course, he did a super amaizing job with it. I mean the Pope could teach it and it'll still be boring. Answer once per class and you've got an 80+ : VERY few ppl fail his class compared 2 other teachers. Oh, the amount of drawing I did in this course (lack of sth. better 2 do) is MIND-BLOWING!
Nice, helpful, and sure knows his English. If you're very good in English, participate and try your best to do thoughtful, hard work, he'll credit you; only, you have to be serious and try.
if you like people that do funny gestures, take him, if you want to take a teacher that's fun and entertaining and cohenrent, don't take him!!!!! LOL ...tried to listen to him but too confuising!!!!!!
I liked him: easy, helpful and alas a little boring but who isn't?!
I liked him, sure I couldn't understand a thing he wrote on the board, but if you pay attention he says it all anyway. Good marker, helpful if you have any questions.
Intro to College English: a little too much in-depth work. Very fair marker and nice man, but unfortunately highly disorganized. Can be pretty confusing. Don't take if you don't like analyzing poetry.
he is the worst teacher ever, i never understood a word that was coming out of his mouth, sometimes i wondered if the language he was speacking was english!
I had him for Intro to College English and I do have to says that he is one of the most interesting teachers I've seen. You people just haven't paid any attetion to this teacher, but he's a great guy. He DOES make his classes interesting, because I have paid attention to them and he does add in a little humor. The people that actually BOTHERED to pay attention to him that class know that his classes ARE interesting. Not to mention, his is a very fair marker... I got a great grade in class.
Extremely nice person, deathly boring teacher. whoever said he's evil is a moron and clearly never shut up in his class. just do what i did, take a nap, and everything will be fine.
He reads a lot of random things in Scottish or something. HIs class work always seems senseless. His theories about the progression of poems makes no academic sense. He is a very nice person...as a person...but sadly, a very uninteresting and poorly organized teacher.
Here's three tips if you end up taking this guy... 1: Bring massive amounts of coffee into the class with you! 2: Make sure you understand Shakespeare! 3: Do every little bit of homework, even if it seems like a dum little assignment!
He is the nicest teacher ever and a very fair marker. Can`t understand his writing ... goes on and on ...very long classes. But you have to love him ! And not too much work.
Makes no attempt to make class interesting. Had him for shakespeare. zzzzzz. sad to say but watching paint dry is more fun than the course material. hes a very nice guy, dont get me wrong, but a class that'll put you to sleep
u will read many poems and essays, he will help u pass if u try u r best. many essays to read and write
monotone...boring...unclear...but if he likes you...you pass...
very nice guy, easy marker if u know ur stuff, gives extensions if u ask, very helpful BUT make sure to bring a good book or else the 2 hours will never end..zz
very nice guy, dun bother asking a question cuz he'll ask u one of his own... very unclear but if he likes you, you'll pass
He is very unclear ...his classses confuse you .. and in the end u don't learn anything ... easy to pass if u attend his classes ..OH.. and he speeks to himself
He is boring, but he is also a sweet man that wont fail anyone!!!!
This teacher is really boaring!! I fell asleep in all his classes. Takes forever to ccorrect the assignments.. and his exams are extremely long. Bad Choice for a teacher
he know what hes doing, gives chances, but THERE IS A LOT OF WORK!!!!
he is one of the best teachers i have had the privelage of meeting, he really and genuinly cares for his students, he gives people so many chances, great guy
He is always talking and his voice is so boring and monotone, he makes you want to fall asleep instead of staying awake and paying attention.
