He's pretty young and really emphasizes class participation. In the beginning of the year, he assigns people different texts to serve as the "interlocutors" and study guide makers for. Basically, you're responsible for asking a question or pointing out a quotation from your assigned text to spark conversation when it has died down. You're also responsible for making a study guide for that text based on the class discussion. He also does a lot of group work, drawing, and acting out scenes. He's a pretty nice and approachable guy. He also gives pop quizzes every so often to make sure people have been reading the texts. Sometimes he'll warn you, and other times he won't. He's a pretty fair grader.
