Although his class is very informational, Mr. Forbes lectures us on a daily basis. Sometimes it takes him 30 minutes to go over a single topic because of how off-track he gets. On top of that, he is extremely unorganized. He often loses assignments in the pile of paperwork that are his counters and desk. Also, extremely picky about how we complete tasks. Once, not everyone took out their history notebooks at the start of the class, so he made us gather in a circle and say what we did wrong.
