Mr. Cava seems to be the only teacher who is interesting, although you do not want to displease him, as he will not be easy on you if you procrastinate on your budget project, and your assignments. Overall, ne never uses the textbook as he uses his knowledge of government and economy. I believe the reason why his lectures are not boring but interesting is because the way how he presents is just like Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear. You got to have him as your teacher.

THE BEST TEACHER EVER! Swears a lot, very intelligent, and has a great taste in music. The class is also very easy as well, I have him for AP Psych and it's just notes most of the time but easy! And barely any homework either.

I loved this guys class! AP Psych was really cool. Cava lets you make up work so it is easy to get an A. The homework questions took forever. The AP essay exam was way easier then his homework so I was ready.
