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!!!!
Great guy! A lot of fun! told a lot of stories and kept history interesting! I am not a history teacher partly because of how he was able to make learning and history fun!
his class is pretty difficult at times and it doesnt help that he doesnt stay on topic EVER, but hes still a really awesome guy
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.
Knaus was one of my favs.... great guy to talk to and very competent of the material.... great teacher!
Paid more attention to females and gossip than to teaching when I had him (93-95).
Best teacher I had in high school. Prepared me for college. More important, started me actually thinking about history.
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.
He can go from good to bad really fast so watch out, liked his stories though
You all say he needs to teach, maybe you need to listen and do your work
Awesome teacher, who will always help with writing. and i LIKE his stories!
