He is an amazing person! He is not only knowledgeable about European history but also about life.
yeah he's a nice teacher and funny and all but you literally learn nothing from his class. a literal waste of time for those who actually want a fighting chance on the AP.
Do not take this class unless you plan on failing the Ap test. He spends most of class talking about his life and then crams in the lesson in the last couple minutes of class. If the Ap test was on the life of Frank Barberia I would have aced it, but sadly it's not.
BARBS AMAZING YOU WONT REGRET TAKING HIS CLASS. HE TALKS ABOUT HIS LIFE MORE THAN TEACHING THE LESSON BUT HE GETS THE JOB DONE. HES VERY KIND AND CONSIDERATE LOVE YOU BARB #SCHISM
ONE OF THE SMARTEST PEOPLE I HAVE EVER BEEN AROUND. I LOVE THIS GUY. BEST TEACHER. HE HAS SO MUCH KNOWLEDGE ABOUT EVERYTHING. HE IS FUNNNY AFFF AND TEACHEs great. I RECOMMEND TAKING AP EURO EVEN IF YOU THINK YOU WONT DO GOOD IN IT, BECAUSE HE WILL MAKE SURE YOU DO GOOD. VERY CARING. OVERALL PERFECT TEACHER. COULDN'T BE BETTER. THANK YOU MR. B LOVE YOU
Ok heres the thing. Mr. Barberia does go of on tangents but he also does his job. The subject itself is dense af and without him throwing in anecdotes, you'd drown. If you read the textbook and take notes, you'll be fine. Audio learners do great in this class. Looking back on last year, and what I'm doing this year, he helped a ton. I've never felt so prepared in my classes and thats because he makes you a writer and a thinker. This class isn't for everyone but you CAN pass the AP.
Only talks about his personal life. Terrible teacher for AP Euro and everyone failed thanks to him. Nice guy tho.
Barb is my favorite teacher at bhs and one of the nicest guys you'll meet. His class everyday is just him lecturing on the material then going off task "digressing" and talking about his personal life for 40 min. The same thing happens everyday and then he complains about being behind. Its hard to get anything done in his class but i always have a good time cuz he's hilarious. Im gonna miss his class next year. Merci
He is one of the best teachers you will get, so funny and caring. He is just great!! He is soooo funny like honestly you will crack up so much in that class because of him. Don't switch out if you get him!!! Stay!!!! you won't regret it!!
He is one of the nicest teachers in the school, and easily one of the most (unintentionally) funniest. But you will only hear him talk. If you need hands on learning to thrive (worksheets, projects) you will probably not do well. This whole class is just lecturing, and he expects you to take in every detail. He will digress too. A lot. Just be careful.
One of the best teachers I have ever had. Not regreting at all that I took his class. He is very funny and very nice. He is also very helpful and knows a lot of history. He is the most hardworking teacher I have ever seen.
Barb is the best teacher on campus. He teaches us good shizm.
If anybody dislikes this man then they don't know shizm.
if u hate mr.b then u dont know shizm
He was good
Mr. Barberia is a great man; he clearly has a vested interest in his students' success. At times, I felt that there was a gap between the curriculum and the daily agenda. He digressed quite a few times, and that took away from his teaching.
Mr. Barberia. What to say about this teacher? I'd like to begin by saying that I was an A student in his class. But he taught me nothing. I only got the grade I did because I studied and reread the entire book myself.
Mr. Barberia is great. He definitely knows more than the textbook and understands how difficult the context is for sophomore students. Many people complain how he doesn't teach them anything or get them ready for the AP test, but I think the history is just too hard for us to understand completely. European history is simply a complex subject, and therefore, many people cannot comprehend all the events of who did what. Barberia tries his best to get us ready, though, and he's an awesome teacher.
barberia is very smart but gets off track to much (which he calls digression). His test questions are all straight off of the study guide/review. He gives you all the answers to it on the reviews (i
I learn more history in English class than I do in here lol.. but i know it's my fault. if you really are serious then hes a good teacher, but its hard to focus..
Mr. B is probably the nicest and most warm-hearted teacher at Burbank High. He has a great sense of humor and entertains the class with his bear dance and quaker box thing i dont even know what it was
Mr. Barberia is one of the nicest teachers I've ever had! He explains the material well and the homework has almost the same questions as the tests. Essays are challenging, but help is provided.
Mr. B is a great person. Yes, he gets distracted at times, but he means well, and does an overall great job with the content. He teaches well on the essay process and makes the class fun.
A person you just want to hug because they act just as loving as a parent.
Very cool and smart history teacher. Actually makes history fun!
he really is a nice guy, but it will be a challenge when it comes to following up on what he is discussing. FOCUS HARD!!... and try your best to stay awake in his class
Mr Barberia is a cool and very funny guy. However, he gets off topic sooooooooo easily. It will be slightly difficult to follow up with what he is saying.
I LOVE YOU MR.B. IF you dnt like mr. b you must have some problems...
He's an amazing teacher and he makes his students want to learn history. And his digression is awesome. Just plain awesome.
Nicest guy ever. But unfortunately, not a good teacher whatsoever.
drop his class becuase you're not going to learn anything
Mr. Barberia is the nicest teacher you will ever have, and he is sooo funny. The problem is, he is a truly terrible teacher; no one learns anything in his class, so pretty much everyone fails the AP.
I don't even know where to start.. His class is a joke; all busy work, no purpose. Nobody ever passes the AP test and he gives us all the answers to tests.
Although the class and information itself is really hard, he makes history a lot easier by making us laugh and going over the sections.
Hes a really enthusiastic teacher. theres never a dull moment in class. Tends to figress but cares about the students and he gives you many opportunities to make up work. Remember to study!
talks about how much charity he gives (lame)...wants to be praised all the time, talks about what he wants to get done and wastes time instead of actually doing it.digression, crams in the last minute
i loved being in his class.. he's an awesome teacher to have but you have to remember to STUDY!! and ask him to do the bear dance :)
He's really into what he teaches, but he's not that good. If you want to do good on the AP, make sure you study on your own!
BEST TEAHCER EVER. he gets so into it...ts so hilarious. tough class but he is such a softie on grading well except his essays.
MR. B one of best teacher in BHS Take him as AP euro teacher
omg he is the best teacher everrr!!!!! i had him in middle school and high school.... ask him to do the turkey lol his funny and is the nicest teacher everrr
Awesome teacher! So cool and funny, great to have during 6th period.
Don't forget to Zip zip zippy Mr. B =p
I love this teacher, he is funny and makes history a little fun. He has helped me so much and cares alot...
cool but needs to not let kids get the best of him and not let kids take advantage of him
Mr. B is the best teacher I ever had in high school.
whAt AbOut wITh?...mR b...StoP nOw..hehe thankss for everyythin!!
Very inconsistant with his playfulness. One day he'll be doing the bear dance, the next he'll chew you out for having bad posture.
Nice, funny, enthusiastic about the subject and students, digresses too much, but is the first teacher who made me love history.
Mr. B i love history n i love your class i like watching u do the bear dance (=
you are the best. Really, i learned so much. I think you are better than Mr. Thompson.I enjoyed and learned way more than in my U.S. history class. keep it up.
Mr B is AWESOME! he may seem intimidating at first, but trust, he'll end up making a goof of himself, singing, dancing, you name it. interactive teacher.
By far the best teacher I had in high school. Mr. B rocks!
so so so nice. too nice. gets walked on, i feel bad. duznt teach too much and is so serious about his class , i feel bad for him. boring lectures
Mr. B is the best! He's a great teacher but forgets sometimes to ZIP ZIP ZIPPY lol He's cool even to students who just sit in his class and don't pay attention.
Mr. B is such an awesome teacher though he can be tangental some times and get off topic with his jokes... he still gets what needs to be accoplished..
My favorite part of Mr. B's teaching was how he was willing to spend ANY EXTRA time with you so that you could understand the material. He is a truly dedicated
He is the best teacher you will ever have. He is easy but you learn and he's always there to just ask for advice..he's the best!STOP NOW!Let us move on! lol...
If all else fails...TRADE, MIDDLE CLASS, RUSSIAN REVOLUTION. GREAT TEACHER
Very funny and easy to pass but the lecture is boring and twisted(hard to understand). Gives in too easily to students, although that might be a nice thing
Cool dude, but he goes off into too many tangents. I don't really absorb the information in his class, though, but maybe it's just me. He's hilarious. Nice guy
HEY MR. B! Thank you so much for being so considerate with ongoing issues...u made it much easier for me. Thanks for being awesome and understanding
Mr Barberia is an excellent World History teacher. He devotes lots of time and work to his job.
Mr. Barberia you're the most considerate and funny teacher I've ever had. You are the a BEST!
Mr B. is a great teacher. His class is so fun because he makes everyone laugh. He is a great teacher.
Mr. B is a great guy. He really has a passion for teaching. He's hilarious and makes history a fun class to go to!
VERY FUNNY AND NICE TEACHER... THE BEST 10TH GRADE HISTORY TEACHER AND ACTUALLY MAKES U LAUGH WHILE TEACHING LOL ...PRETTY MUCH A REALLY GOOD PERSON
Awesome teacher, very funny and understanding... He should consider teaching some of the other teachers...
Is a good teacher and a very nice person. ^^ Would probably get more work done during class if he didn't get off-track so often (and then apologize for it), but the intermissions are much appreciated and you learn tons anyway. Great class :)
Great teacher, fun class, but he can go off on some long complicated unrelated tangents during a lecture. It's always gunny when he does though.
He should do another cannon bomb!!!!!Awesome teacher!
Among the very best teachers. Very few teachers can rivil his teaching.
get rid of participation system do the chicken dance...
the best teacher so far that i have ever had and the best world history teacher in 10th grade at burbank high school
