Mr.Claus is one of the realest teachers in the school, he knows that some guy from the 1800's doesn't apply to us directly but he tries to teach it with the most sincerity and honesty that it makes his lessons pretty fun to listen to. His class is easy if you just use your notes and study, he's practically like a college professor in a high school. He does a good job of relating and speaking directly to his class and he looks at everybody as an individual, he's unique and I like him for it.
Claus is wonderful, particularly to have for AP. He's difficult, and holds student's accountable, but I don't consider that a bad thing. He expects effort, and if you give effort, you will do well. I love his dry sense of humor and we do some very fun projects. Doesn't expect participation as long as you pay attention. I felt very close to everyone after his class and gained some great friends. He prepares well for college. Probably my best high school experience was this class. Highly recommend
Mr.Claus is an ignorant person who instead of ever admitting that something could have been wrong with his or one of his teaching methods, turns the problem on you and accuses you of having done something wrong. Would not recommend if you actually want a teacher to be able to help you threw problems or any issue in the class.
Claus is a very understanding teacher. It is easy to succeed as long as you do the required work load. Homework is not too bad, he provides enough time in class that will allow you to finish it all. Map Quizzes... They are pretty easy, they commonly contain the major countries in the region along with a few need to know ones, it is an easy 14 to 15 points. I don't see how people don't do well in this class, it comes down to how resourceful you are and how you efficiently use your time.
Mr.Claus is awesome! He is a great teacher. He is very understanding and makes the class fun if you put the effort into the class. I'd recommend to take him!
He knows A LOT about what he teaches. Can be "cranky old man" (his own words) and is strict, but also understanding and there to help you succeed. Do the work, earn the grade. Very good with AP students.
Mr. Claus is a great guy. He's an amazing teacher if you are the student who cares about his class. Mr. Claus isn't the funnest teacher out there, but he can be if you work hard in his class. I think Mr. Claus is awesome
I love Mr. Claus. He made a class that could have been boring rather interesting. I mean, come on: Who'd win in a cage match--a group of tourists, a small herd of buffalo, or a family of grizzly bears?
Not the best teacher I ever had, but he was really nice.
he is terrible doesnt teach well at all and shouldnt have been hired
Claus is terrible. He makes you humiliate yourself for his amusement.
He is terrible. He has no sense of time management and I know the curriculum better than he does. He thinks he is awesome and you might like him for awhile but your grades will prove otherwise.
good guy...but the only thing i really learned from him for APUSH was 'the road not taken'
AP was not hard at all but he was a horrible teacher. He never answered questions and stopped grading papers after september. Really poor time management
I had Mr. Claus last year for U.S History he was the best teacher that i have ever had! It was his first year teaching.
the way you talk in the class really makes you sound intelligent. awesome!
