ONE OF THE BEST classes I've taken at Pali. Rauschuber is the only AP gov teacher and if you're contemplating taking honors or ap, definitely take Ap. As someone who was originally interested in politics and the like, this class was wonderful for me and I really enjoyed learning every step of the way. He is a great instructor and tends to read of his lectures notes while you fill them in with the examples he says. he's very funny in class and will get excited whenever he hears an airplane outs
My favorite teacher this year. I'm more of a STEM-oriented person, so AP gov didn't really appeal to me (honestly I just took it to look good for colleges). However, Mr. Rauschuber changed my mind completely. I went from thinking "I hate learning social sciences" to "this is awesome." Mr. R is pretty tough on tests/grading, but in hindsight, it prepared me really well for the AP exam. The AP exam was a breeze compared to his tests. Anyways Mr. R is super funny, nice, and a fantabulous teacher!
Though this class may seem intimidating the first week you get use to it and it really isn't that hard if you read the lecture notes and listen to him when he lectures, instead of writing notes all the time because you will remember things he says better than the notes you write. Little to no busy work and gets to the point. He makes every class interesting with an anecdote and has a lot of enthusiasm for the material. I would definitely recommend this class as you learn and pass the AP exam!
Great teacher! Really gets into the material and makes class fun!
HES AMAZING! You'll really learn a lot. Pretty beuaracratic teacher, but overall a good learning experience.
This guy will help you do well on the AP gov test no problem. He also seems like the kind of guy that will cheat on his wife someday
best teacher ever!!! no bs work....funny, cool person, he was always happy and smiling. i wish all teachers were like mr. rauschu!
my favorite teacher of all time in so many ways he is very clear, understanding, reasonable, and funny u r missing out if u don't take his class (no busy work ever)
great teacher, I had him 4 years ago and I still remember his teachings. I wish I had him again.
I felt so bad that I couldn't handle his class. He a really good teacher but really hard.
He is hard, but you learn from him. He is also dedicated to his job.
Great guy and very helpful. He cares about his students.
a very cool guy and just pay attention to his notes.
class is not very hard, altough decifering the abstruse woll reader is a drag. Anyway, take good notes and expect to do well. Hes nice, caring and at times funny! Similar to Burr.
He needs to liven up his class. His lessons could be much better if they weren't so drawn out.
he is very cool and he is very funny but the only thing i dont like is that he makes us read alot.....very easy class...
Cool teacher! 9th grade humanitas class is easy if you pay attention to EVERYTHING he says because he will put the smallest detail on the tests.
only knows what's in his notes and is lost on current events. Boring reading assignments he does not test on. Plus, People who love histoy and politics end up hating the class.
nice, understanding, helpful, will listen to you. difficult class and a lot of esoteric stuff to read. reading the la times will help you a lot with the class.
dont take him in 9th grade. i took him senior year and his government class was harder than my political science course in college! i still use his notes tho!
Very good teacher. Has rather difficult tests, but if you learn what he teaches, you'll succeed.
tests are hard, but straight out of notes. if you have a good memory, its pretty easy. he doesnt know anything that isnt in his own notes so dont ask.
stimulates discussion by playing devils advocate, passionate about his subject
very knowledgable and clear. DEDICATED. stimulates discussion and application of concepts, nice guy, very professional
likes to play devils advocate - definitely fun class discussions! Study LOTS and youll do fine
good teacher, good discussions, funny persons. hardish tests. not too bad.
Insane. Expects you to know a bunch of stuff outside of class and tests you on it. Sometimes gets confused in what he's saying, which makes him look stupid
Mr. Rauschuber is a good teacher, knows what hes talking about. Gotta study for his tests though or your screwed. I liked his class alot.
Just a couple of tips. Take VERY good notesand save them, ur going to use all of them next year.
A really fun class, you get to have great class discussions. he is a great guy, but the tests are really hard!
Great guy fun class when off the subject. Tests are hard and gets confusing... read alot!
Good class discussions. Nice Guy but lacks in clarity sometimes and tests can be very hard if you just know the basics. Gotta study A LOT to do well.
He's nice, but he has a shallow understanding of his subject. He often misunderstands his own test questions and rarely knows anything that is not in his notes
I had him for Humanitas. He's a really good teacher and has an interesting class with interesting discussions. Gives very hard tests.
