    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.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because of the rigorous work that helps prepare you for any paper. In Baker's eyes, education can not be taught by just the criteria. He brings in real world aspects and teaches you more about yourself than you would ever in any other english class.

    Course highlights:

    We read several deep philosophical books. Many of which taught you a new lesson about identity and how to know what yours is. Students soon realize that they're not as much of an individual as they thought. However, throughout this course, I learned how to look at the world through a different lens giving myself a better more original identity.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO NOT SLACK OFF! PAY ATTENTION! You will need Baker's help with colleges and if you are respectful to him he will help you like no other teacher will.
