Mr. Unmack is very smart and does a great job preparing you for high school. His exams are difficult but if you study you will pass. He also may seem intimidating at times but don't be afraid to raise your hand and ask him a question if you are confused. Also its not true that you have less work the second half of the year.

mr. unmack ikinda confusing sometimes. but if u ask any questions, he will be glad to answer them. he might seem scary but dont be afraid to talk to him. if you talk to him individually, he is ver nice and helpful. he doesnt use the textbooks to much... which isnt bad. Although he is a great person, he assigns too much work and not enough time to complete it. we had to read 4 chapters and write 2 essays on them in just one week. and when we turned in a big project, he assigned 2 other projects.

Mr. Unmack is a very good teacher! The first quarter was a little hard, but the rest of the year was fun as well as challenging. As long as you don't procrastinate in his class you will get a good grade. We watched alot of history-oriented movies and he would usually give us candy after vocabulary and grammer tests. He will prepare you for high school!

At the beginning of the school year, EVERYONE was upset that they "got stuck" with Unmack rather than Ray or Frazier and would talk about wanting to switch classes. I was one of the is people, but I am so happy that I didn't switch. You've probably heard all of the rumors that "Unmack is terrible" or "Unmack is so mean" or "His class is so hard" but none of that true. He is literally the best teacher in the history of wcms and I am so glad that I "got stuck" with him.

MR.UNMACK IS THE BEST TEACHER OUT OF ALL THE 8TH GRADE ENGLISH/HISTORY TEACHERS. IN HISTORY WE WATCH MOVIES THAT ARE SO COOL AND IN ENGLISH WE LEARN SO MUCH. HE HAS LECTURES AND HISTORY AND MAKES US TAKE NOTES, AND HIS LECTURES ARE VERY ORGANIZED AND CLEAR. IF YOU ARE IN CHURCHILL I TOTALLY RECOMMEND HIM AS A TEACHER. IT PREPARES YOU VERY WELL FOR HIGH-SCHOOL AND HE IS VERY STRICT WITH HIS GRADING WHICH IS EVEN BETTER.

You've probably heard the rumors of how he's a terrible teacher and how he loads you with work, but really, he's become my favorite teacher. I had him for MYP english and history in 8th grade. The beginning of the year is hard because you're given many assignments, like the Of Mice and Men essays, but after that, the class is amazingly easy! There's fun vocab every week and towards the middle of the year, you get to write a story as a class. Also, the radio show was the best project!

In the beginning of the year, it's really scary, but you'll survive. After that, it's pretty easy. He just assigns vocabulary and every Friday you have a vocab and grammar test. For history, he'll just assign projects for you to do out of the textbook. He rarely teaches, but when he actually does teach, he does history pretty well. For English, we just did useless projects to pass the time. While we're working, he sits at his computer wearing headphones probably watching netflix

At first he seemed to be a great teacher, but then I realized he just made us teach ourselves. We had to do our reading and researching at home while in class he assigns us work and we do it. He doesn't really teach it, we teach ourselves.

Urgggggggg Mr. Unmack is such a bad teacher! "Quantity over quality", that should be the motto of his class. And he favors girls. If you have Mr. Unmack then you are very unlucky, I have never had such a bad teacher. I had a spanish teacher last year that I thought was bad, but then I met Mr. Unmack, and he is about 8,000,000,000,000 times worse!

Mr Unmack is the most amazing teacher I have ever had. His teaching style was unlike any other, and it worked for me perfectly. He put the hard work at the beginning of the year and the end of the year was relaxing and fun. He u gives so much freedom
