Mr. Franzen is a really cool teacher that loves to talk about sports and just whatever is on a student's mind. He even gives out donuts to his students during STEP. Aye Aye Franzen!

Very chill most of the time. But sometimes you can't tell if he's joking, esp. when he picks on his favorite students. I loved the homework load. Homework was only class notes and ch. assignment which were due day of the test. Projects were minimal except for a very long stock project. But if your taking this class because your scared of AP gov/econ, take AP. Some people say AP gov/econ is even easier.

Mr. Franzen is a great teacher. He is really carefree about tardy's and is willing to give extra credit for just showing up on Monday's

Mr. Franzen is awesome. He let us just talk about life for a class period. Learning R.S. isn't as important as learning about life.
