I love Mr.Percoco he really knows what he is talking about. The material does stick with you, he is really entertaining and connects with the students in class. You will learn more with him than you would have in AP US history. He really earned the spot in the Teacher's Hall of Fame

Applied History is a wonderful class, it teaches you to look at life from a different perspective. If history is your calling he has connections everywhere and even if it's not the internship experience is invaluable. I just hope Swain doesn't ruin this wonderful program that Percoco has made so amazing.

Best history teacher I've ever had, period! He really knows his stuff, and he's more suited to teach at a college instead. (Oh wait, he does!) Applied History was one of the best classes I've had with him, and it's been great doing the class, internship, trips, and all. I'll certainly look back on his class as a positive experience for me. Now if only he could remedy his Lincoln illness....lol.

Way too many puns!! Applied History is an awesome class, and if you're lucky to be selected for it by him, then DO TAKE IT! You'll have a blast; take it from someone who once could care less about history. Now I love the subject!
