The amount of textbook use is crazy. You are exhausted before even stepping into the class. I died. Drop out if you can.
Gilman! Love him. Had him for APUSH (death) and Law (a blast). Class is low key, lots of movies, off topic conversations, and meth jokes. Funny guy, teaches you what you need to know while incorporating lots of fun facts and jokes to keep it interesting. Possibly the slowest grader in the world, but it's cool since he is a very easy grader (in Law, at least).
Apush ruined my freaking life - only take it if you're obnoxiously intelligent and motivated and know you can handle it. I almost failed the class and it absolutely murdered my deep and abiding love of American history. However, Mr. Gilman is the man and I will defend him to the ends of the earth.
Mr. Gilman is a funny guy, but does not teach you anything. You rely solely on the information in the text book for everything, tests, papers, ect. He is useless outside of class and is a very lazy teacher. He took our mid term multiple choice questions, 2014-2015, offline and it was the first link!! He takes forever to give back grades and his classes are somewhat boring because you don't do anything in them.
The course is obviously difficult (its friggin' Ap), but Mr. Gilman makes history the class I look forward to the most each day. He has witty anecdotes and paces our class pretty well, and is just an all around funny person. Thanks for making AP so much fun mr. Gilman
Possibly my favorite teacher in high school. Great guy, great teacher. Take a class with him if you get the chance.
Gilman! Love him. Great guy. Had him for law, nit too hard, not too easy.
My absolute favorite teacher. Had him for law and AP, and both were amazing. He is hilarious.
GIIIIILMANNN! he's a cool cat. take law. you won't regret it.
BEST teacher ever. He is hilarious and actually teaches very well. Always there for extra help, and makes learning history so much fun:)
haha hes soo funny when he starts running around the room jumping up and down! its great how much he loves his work! and ya he may be hard... but you actually learn!
Whenever I talked to him outside of class, I felt like he was barely condescending to talk to me. He's funny, but horribly unhelpful. I always felt more confused after speaking with him.
He was able to make history come alive for my child. Would recommend him quite highly!
He is probably the best teacher i have ever had...i loved taking ap with him and i learned so much...hes funny and enthusiastic, hes really a great guy
Basically, he makes AP somewhat fun. In class, he paces, jumps, and is truely excited about the topic, which makes the course so much better. Really difficult though on tests and essays!
mr gilman ROCKS! so enthusiastic, so funny. APUSH was cool, good grading, lets u work at your own pace. he rly cares about his students tho he likes to joke around. movies @ yr's end are worth it!
He is the man. I would take a class just to get him. He is fair and the coolest teacher at LS. And by teacher i mean a real teacher not like a wellness teacher.
nice teacher for APUSH, although it was hard, it was worth it and it was fun~
An excellent choice to teacher APUSH, even if his tests are hard and he's a tough grader on essays.
He is really entertaining and funny in class. He jumps around, paces A LOT, and yells from time to time. If I had any other teacher for APUSH I would be bored out of my mind. The workload and DBQ's are not fun though.
Gilman is difficult, but horribly amusing at times. His classes are fun but the work can be exhasting
Mr. Gilman is really an amazing teacher. In pretty much all of my classes I sit there counting the minutes till i get to leave. But in Gilman's class i get really engrossed in whatever it is that we're doing, because he finds a way to make the material grab you in some way. He's also very down to earth and just a very normal guy who happens to teach tough material.
Gilman is the coolest. End of story. Take Law with him.
Hard class, would have been nice if some of the stuff had been scaled...but Mr. Gilman is nice and helped me with some of my essays and stuff.
The G man is really cool and is good at teaching, even though the course is extremely hard.
Incredibly difficult course...too much material in short time...brain overflowing. Very good effort though!
Mr.Gillman is a great teacher and he makes law fun and exciting
Very funny, very clear at walking through stuff, maybe too clear, but overall great class
Totally cool, but it's kinda hard to get an A+ for me... Oh well. He rocks!
Mr. Gilman you are the man. Your class is off the heezy fo sheezy. Pound it.
Energetic and excited about teaching, Mr. Gilman was QUITE helpful as I learned about history and law. I owe him a huge debt of gratitude...
