Very nice and cordial teacher. . . good person - just gives WAY too much homework (like 5-7 pages of notes PER NIGHT), and expects his students' lives to revolve around history
Best teacher I've ever had- really intelligent, helpful, and devoted to his job. Will push you hard, but its do-able...and you'll remember more from his hx class than any other. (blut und eisen!)
He is awesome. you learn so much and have fun doing it. he makes history fun and enjoyable for all. and he reminds me of santa claus
Great. You learn alot. He's funny and interesting. WestCiv rocks
Alot of the course is in class. You can't just do the reading. If you miss alot of classes your in trouble!! Good teacher. Don't miss class!
He's a very challenging teacher, but if you keep up with the work, you learn so much.
One of the best teachers: but he is hard. The best thing you can do is do his work and understand his sense of humor (it can be pretty funky at times). If you do work, you will be fine. Best class of freshman year.
Brilliant. Funny. Serious about his work. He's easy, IF you do the work.
mr. putnam is my hardnest class. good luck to all who has him because he's super hard. i also don't like how he makes fun of kids sometimes.
He insists on the best from every student. My daughter learned more from him than any other teacher she'd ever had.
Nice man and a great teacher. He expects a lot from students which is a good thing, I guess.
bputnam is the man, the class discussions are awesome and hes a funny guy, team waramaug is awesome too-tloeb
my fav teacher ever. if youre a dem, youll love him, makes republicans cry, THANKGOD. really enjoyed the challenge of the assignments, adjust to his expectations, and dont whine
very very knowledgeable. i think he's a pretty good teacher and i like his sense of humor
EXPRESSES HIS POLITICAL OPINIONS WAYYY TOO MUCH IN CLASS TO TRY AND PERSUADE US INTO THINKING LIKE HIM. teases too much, too many tests.
The best teacher ever! very wise and respectable. He also respects his students but does tease every now and then. anyone who doesn't like him hates learning.
Had him frosh year, and with Waramaug. Incredibly knowledgable, but very demanding of his students. You've gotta go out of your way to make him dislike you.
He is the best! Always adding in side intrests instead of teaching just the book. Was my favorite class. And Team Waramaug rocks!
i think you are extremely narcistic. who cares if you were on jeopardy? if it's that much a big deal, maybe you should propose to alex trebek?
He's cool and funny. He has kids act things out to remember things. But he doesnt like lazy people
very hard but let me tell you, if you're willing to work you will learn sooooo much in this class. not horrible if you do you're work. hilarious man too.
he def. has his favorites--its hard to predict who he will take a shine to--he is known for riciculing quiet and shy students--you're right--he IS pompous
I didn't have him for WestCiv, but I wish I did. Fun class!
Mr. Putnam is the best!!! Brilliant Man; Made me want to be a Social Studies Teacher.
you know i really didnt like him when i had him as a teacher but i guess he is the type of teacher that grows on you when you realize why he is the way he is
He's not as hard as everyone says. Best teacher ever. Smartest too.
He really cares about his students - enough to yell at them if they don't make an effort.People with good attitudes do well. kids with lousy attitudes blame him
He enjoys giving students random facts which can be cool at times. He knows alot but doesn't do good with the paper work, like study guides and test info!
he gives like pop tests which is like really unfair and when he does give u stuff 2 study its not the stuff on the test!!
Putnam can be tempermental and plays favorites...which I think is real lame. He makes people feel stupid and is allergic to bananas...
He actively works to help kids who are having trouble and want to learn.
Its true that Mr. Putnams tests were hard and he is a little intimidating, but he's a great and funny guy! i would love to have him as a teacher again.
He is not a good teacher.He teaches his classes in different languages.He hates upon George Bush and if you do not agree with him, you fail.He also hates girls.
mr putnam is a good teacher, despite some of the things that have been posted
He works you hard. If you don't want to work in class, you're in trouble. Don't come to class without doing your homework. He wants you to learn
He's the best teacher I've ever had. But I have noticed that if he you aren't as interested in the material as him, he doesn't like you as much.
his tests are really tough and i dont think he ever actually really told us when we were having them
Mr. Putnam is a difficult teacher. He is challenging, BUT!!! His assignments are not unreasonable. As a person, Mr. Putnam can be very easy to get along with.
The vendetta which he has started stems from me choosing science over history. Rather than understand, he chooses to degrate me, talking behind my back. Thanks.
PUTNAM IS THE BEST!! You just couldnt slack off in his class. He's funny, and nice, a great teacher..probably by fav ever!
Ehhh it was hard and stressfull but looking back I think he was a good teacher
