I had him for global...lots of note taking, and he rushes you. He has a hard time hearing which can be annoying. We wrote one essay, which he never graded so we were not prepared for that part of the final. He makes you do a chapter cover with specific components but it does help with review. Tests were straight out of the book

Mr. Graham tries his best to teach us by making us write several pages of notes daily. I ended up going through 2 notebooks when I had him. He doesn't explain things at all and has us do packet covers to study for test-- they help a little, but not much. You can expect to have a sore wrist at the end of the period with him from all the notes we do with no explanation. He just reads from the powerpoint and yells at students to wake them up during the lecture. If you have him-- good luck!

Packet covers are possibly the worst thing in the world and he's deaf in one ear, but he's really not a bad person. You can tell that he's frustrated with everything changing in the school system and he's trying his best to keep up. If he goes to show a YouTube video, for your own sake please help him. You're gonna take a lot of notes, but it helps in the end. Don't hate him right off the bat bc that's gonna make the year awful for both of you.

Mr. Graham is alright. He teaches drivers ed pretty good. In the car he really lets us take control, he tells us were to go and we have to do it. If we make a mistake he lets us know (in a good way). Overall not a bad guy. Help? hes MORE than willing

Graham gave me no incentive to learn. He made us copy notes for most of the classes, when he could have been up there teaching the material in a helpful and understandable way. He's an alright guy when he's not teaching though.
