    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you think that you can attend class, sleep, and never listen to anything Mr.Baker says and still pass, don't take this course. If yoU have a passion to learn, not just about English but yourself, take this course. He will improve your writing more than you know.

    Course highlights:

    Many novels he selects for independent reading relates to identity. He uses these books to help us find our identities in the process. Also, many things relate to the Allegory of the Cave.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is no test to study for and besides writing your papers every 3-4 weeks there is no homework. So, give Baker your time during his class, you will learn so much more than you expect.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Many teachers simply teach the course because they can. Along with just teaching to teach, many teachers hand out pointless worksheets and have no reason as to why the handout needs to be completed besides the fact its for a grade. Mr.Baker teaches in a way that you learn not only about english and how to write well but about yourself and your beliefs.

    Course highlights:

    Often, the course recalls back to the allegory of the cave. It almost seems annoying how much the cave was brought up but it is relevant to our society. The class helps you see how society keeps people in a cave. I know this sounds depressing but it helps you analyze the world in a new prospective.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is no studying in this class because there are no test but always do the reading. The importance of reading to fully understand the meaning is important rather than reading for plot.
