He's super nice and really wants you to succeed. His class gets boring sometimes, but that's because it is English class. Attendance is mandatory and he gives pop quizzes, so go to class.

Very easy class. Almost all of the reading was done in small amounts from the textbook. Had to read one short book for the class other than the textbook. Going to the movie screenings made up for absences. Two tests, two essays, one class discussion, and four in class essays are the only assignments. Accent is hilarious!

all of his work is easily do-able, but i hated the in class essays. if you read the material it was easy because its usually about social issues. hes a cool guy and hes really lenient on late work as long as you do it. attendance is mandatory but you can get atleast 6 absences before your grade drops. HE LOOKS LIKE MR FEENY. his accent is too funny

Attendance is part of your grade. In Class essays happen about once per week based off the readings out of the text book. If you can remember the details from the text you can score well on the essays. There are four out of class essays and the sheets he hands out about them tell you exactly what to write about. He grades on grammar and spelling.

Dr. Massey is pretty awesome. He's a very likable guy, requires reading great books, and is almost always willing to help. If you keep up with the reading, do well on in-class essays, and ask him for help on basically everything, it's difficult not to make an A in there. Certainly up there with Camden of my favorite teachers so far.

When I saw the list of books for his class I was definitely excited. Who wouldn't want to read Harry Potter and The Hobbit for class? There are 3 papers and they are definitely unrelated to the books. Topics include: Jay-z and Prince to name a few. He's somewhat of a "grammar Nazi" but he's willing to help if you ask for it.

He is an awesome teacher who "made" us read the hobbit and Harry Potter. He grades tough on papers but follow directions and you will be fine.

I LOVED HIM. He was extremely nice and really wanted his students to succeed. He lets you redo one paper and drops one in class essay which can improve grades dramtically. He is really helpful when you hav e questions and if you can't get something printed or have an excuse for an absent he is great with those. He lets a lot of things slide. GREAT

He is hilarious, he reminds me of Feeny off Boy Meets World. Like many have said, he is sometimes unclear and his source restrictions and paper grading makes this feel like a 300 level English class rather than 102. Otherwise, he is an ok guy and cares that you do well. He also gives difficult in class essays. Take him if you are a good writer.

He is a very helpful teacher who cares about his students. Go to class cause attendance matters and participate in the lectures. If you follow his guidelines you should do fine.

Like many say, he doesn't always clarify what he wants, but if you ask questions he is glad to help. You can't miss more than 4 absenses. I literally felt like I was a freshmen in high school again. SO easy. We read Harry Potter...for fun. Only three papers all semester.

Great teacher, very helpful. When people are giving their presentations, PARTICIPATE in the discussion, it's part of your grade. Be sure to read all the instructions for papers and presentations VERY carefully. He grades papers hard when it comes to following the directions. He really, honestly cares if you do well, and will help anyone who asks.
