Bad teacher. Whenever there is new material, all he does is give the students a list of questions they could find on the internet and to him this is teaching. Whenever there is new math, all he does is do a few problems on the board and if you don't understand, too bad, "That's what the D's & F's are for." He could care less whether or not the class actually gets the information.
While he is very difficult and can be very belittling, so long as you do the homework, study the material, and take notes, you'll be fine. Getting on his good side helps. Don't talk back. Be punctual.
Please, he's the easiest teacher i ever had. All u have to do is read the book...just like all the other classes. If you guys cant handle him, u will NEVER make it in college!
I knew Thope a while back, and to be honest, all the things you hear about him are probably true, but get to know him and get on his good side, and there isn't anyone cooler out there
This man does nothing. Work sheets come from a book, he never even looks at the work or tests. Classes grade eachothers work. Be good to the people whos work you grade. why not? This class is a piece of cake. Enjoy him for his sense of humor, he is an amazing guy. BUY THE BOOKS HE RECOMENDS IN THE FIRST CLASS. Those are the books that he takes all his tests out from. If you understand his mentality you will get an A. He plays spider solitaire instead of teaching.Use this to your benefit.
Underrated teacher. Doesn't give essays, curves hard tests, and lets you take tests/quizzes in groups. Do all hw, and READ (not skim through) all lessons, i promise you'll pass.
Had him in '91. So worried about the AP average, he told me and others not to take the exam. We did, and passed. Get used to it, college is all guys like him.
NEVER EVER EVER take him. do whatever u can to get out... He wants kids to fail (no joke). also one of the hardest teachers i've ever had.
he's definitely a hard teacher, but he is only so to prepare students for college,etc. He gives useful information-while in his class i didn't like it however
THORPE IS THE COOLEST MOST REAL TEACHER IN THE SCHOOL. HES NOT FAKE LIKE THE OTHER TEACHERS, HE TELLS YOU WHATS ON HIS MIND. EASY BUT DOESNT GIVE DIRECTIONS.
Mr. Thorpe is the meanest person alive. I feel bad for his daughter even though she is really nice. Needs to lighten up and become more organized. Modar Gende.
