Boring and he just keeps talking about the couple of books he wrote. He is intelligent but bad teacher. A pain for a 8 am class.

well this is a teacher that... is ...as clear as my last sentance. Whatever he will say, however he decides to word it, you WILL NOT understand a word.Going to this class made me depressed because it seemes as if i never learnt anything that could help me in anyway possible. Do Not take this class..you will most likely pass it. I got 70 and i cant seem to understand what was going on. Im not sure wasting my time in that clas was even worth a 70 Best of luck if u are in this class!

worst. class. ever. oh my gosh. it's not even funny how painful it was. as nice as it is that he's 400 years old and cancels often, and you DO grade yourself,his horribleness doesn't make it worth it.

Very funny teacher. Teaches you to think philosophically, not really an english class, helps if you're intelligent or attentive during boring subjects. Makes excuses for you, critical during oral quiz

his class was a joke. you mark yourself all year long. most students just wrote down higher marks than what they really had and surprisingly enough he doesn't seem to care. cancels alot too.

The class was super slack. Listen to what he says and you'll do fine. He's a really sweet, eccentric old man. Very smart. Don't worry about the oral quizzes-they're a joke. You mark yourself all year.

Worst english teacher ever, but he's a nice person, eventually you get to like him. Did Yoga in class. It was a joke the entire year.

Every class is an "In-Class Quiz" where he asks odd questions about things that no one cares about. Ex: "What is the difference between writing and drawing your name?" 100% ODD.

His idea of quizzing: he quite literally asked me to paraphrase what he was about to say.... he did this to several others in the class.. most condescending, boring, pedestrian teacher I have ever had

He's a good person but a bad teacher; easy grader; boring class; he takes the 2 hours to "teach" but it seems very very long; takes attendanceand asks weird questions.

haha! haines! hes so jks! he intimidated a lot of people on the first day of class but i cudnt switch out n in the end im glad i didnt. it was so slack lol! all we did argue with him until he gave up, it always wasted like the entire class. we had hardly any work for an english class. he puts people on the spot and does yoga n stuff on his desk n lets us mark ourselves. it was very stress-free class

Oh, Mr. Haines...well I can say I was not disappointed, you DO get to mark yourself on nearly anything, and he DID do yoga on his desk during our exam! He asks questions out of the blue but doesn't really care when you say you don't know what he's talking about. If you want to laugh and cheat, then this is a great class.
