What are people talking about? Mr. Carr is a wonderful teacher! He teaches exactly what you need to know and if you take notes on his easy-to-comprehend powerpoints, you pass quizzes and tests. He likes it when classes participate (answer questions) and is maybe occasionally annoyed when no one does, but he doesn't yell, he just puts emphasis and some things. I personally find his personality refreshing because it keeps me alert. I wish he wasn't retiring because I want him for sociology.

He's INSANE!!! I think he's bipolar. He told my friend that she was "wasting his time" and he'll yell random words for no reason. Like, he'll be saying "the declaration of independence was A GREAT THING FOR EVERYONE!!!" and he'll yell for NO rsn

He lectures all of class, or shows a video for part of class and lectures for the other part of it. It is really difficult to be attentive the whole time, but if you are, you'll do well in his class.

he is quiet and resevered but very smart. He's also one of the nicest and genuine teachers you'll meet--it may take a while to break through his quietness but once you do, he's an awesome teacher and you learn a lot from him.

Mr. Carr is one of the most interesting teachers i've ever had. He's not the kind of teacher that stands up in front of the class and lectures..he actually gets the students involved in the topic. He's a really laid back guy and if you participate in his class and do your work, its not difficult to get a good grade
