JIM OTT IS THE FREAKING MAN. Best teacher I have ever had. HAIL STALIN.
Amazing teacher, amazing guy. Wants to teach people about the real world. Can hold an entire classes attention for the whole period. You always want to learn when you come into his class, because you know it will be fun.
What a guy. Best teacher I have ever had. Can connect with the students very easily but still can get down to business. Really makes you think outside the box in a great way.
He is a pretty chill dude, probably the best teacher I have ever met. Good taste in cars. 10/10 would learn again.
An amazing teacher. one of few sensible communists. really stretches your mind.
Probably my favorite teacher I've ever had. Always used to look forward to his class. He is hilarious and picks on students all the time. Highly recommend his extremism course!!!
While he scared me to death the first semester with many of his "antics" he made me think from a whole new point of view. He assigned interesting videos as homework and I learned so much. After taking his class I find myself questioning my political views that I have gained from my parents. While I stand firm to many of them he has brought into my life a whole new way of thinking.
This man is without a doubt a communist. Never goes a day without insulting someone on the class, usually a west sider or Indiana kid. Very funny and interesting class
Best teacher I have ever had. I took his "Extremism" class at St. X. He is the most knowledgable, clear, and informative teacher I have had thus far at St. X. He truly encourages his students to think rather than complete meaningless busy work. Everything he taught us was meaningful and applicable and affected our lives. He is excellent.
A reasonably commie that really explicates the material.
Loved it. Extremely easy classes and a great sense of humor.
Mr Ott is way too freaking tough. I have him for Modern World History and with Ext Cr, am pulling enough to get a D+ for the semester. But I guess on the plus side he isn't a jerk.
Although our political views differ, he is a great teacher, and loves what he teaches. Fairly easy.
I had him the first year he taught Intro. to Gov't... so it was his first go at it. If you do the homework its very simple. Though, his antics get old quick.
A cool guy and teacher. Really cares about his subject. Take his extremism class if you can.
I am writing this 30 years after my last class with Mr. Ott. Still a memorable teacher.
Mr. Ott is the man. His tests are tough, but his class is simply awesome. He never did say whether or not a marxist can own a z3 though.....
