You do most of the learning at home from reading the textbook because he doesn't really teach or stay on topic. Won't do well on the AP exams, but at least there isn't too much work.

He is the epitome of a wonderful teacher, fantastic storyteller and just all around one of the best people you will ever meet. You will appreciate history so much after you have his class!!!!

Knows that he wants in a students writing. Often gets off on tangents but gets the work done (most of the time)

At the beginning of the year he was my favorite teacher- but now through all of his stories and ICE essays I realize that he's a pompous jerk.

He's a good teacher, the honors class was very interesting. However don't expect much from him other than the education if you're male.
