    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Jeff Spanier is an engaging and amusing teacher who teaches with such an laid back and inclusive style, things are learned without seeming like they were taught in a classroom setting. At the end of the year, students look back on his class in surprise at how much was accomplished and how much they had grown as a student and as a person. Mr. Spanier is an honest and comedic teacher who can make even the incredibly dry novels interesting.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the importance of Shakespeare and the massive contribution the play-write had on modern literature, and why his works are still studied and referenced meticulously even today. I also would like to highlight the generosity of constructive criticism this teacher offers- Mr. Spanier is adamant on the students succeeding, and is a useful resource who welcomes students' questions with open arms and individualized answers.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend it, but caution any students who hope to skate by with an easy A. Being an AP course, there will always be work to be put in. But should you put in the time and the effort towards the class, you will pass with flying colors. Hard work and paying attention will give you an easy A in this weighted class.
