Super fun class! Had him for APUSH it was lit. He is pretty knowledgeable about a wide range of things in US history, though beware for APUSH that his knowledge of the curriculum is a bit spotty. Do the reading outside of class and you can chill in class and reinforce your learning with skits, games, and activities.
If you are not A complete idiot you can pass his class with an B or above but most kids usually dont study or ask for help and they blame it on him
Mr.Nuckolls would be a very good civics teacher, but he is not very good at being a U.S history teacher. He changes the tests and focuses and teaches us the wrong information. Focuses too much on the present in a history class. He expresses his political views inexplicably. An very energetic man, yet he focuses on the wrong stuff. LPS, a game we play, takes way too much time and our learning experience is shortened often to 10 minutes. The class's learning experience is pretty bad.
Mr. Nuckolls is great but he is a bit too strict about enrichment.
I think mr. nuckolls would be a better civics or ap gov teacher than an ap us history teacher. He talks about current events way too much and rarely connects them to history. He is an apush teacher and never talks about history. He's really fun to be around though and is an inspirational person :)
Very energetic guy, but if you don't already have a decent grasp on the content his teaching can be a little confusing. Despite that, his class was a major highlight in my freshman year and I absolutely recommend joining SPUD if you aren't enrolled in one of his classes (and also if you are).
Mr. Nuckolls is awesome, and he really cares about his students and career. He tries getting students involved in history, by saying to commit to grit and to RISE UP AND ROAR!! People don't like him because he has a different teaching method than typical teachers, but students will do well in his class as long as they pay attention and participate everyday in the Nuckolls Learning Academy. Also, don't expect of him to learn your name quickly. Two months into school, he still doesn't know mine..
Mr. Nuckolls is very helpful, very funny, and actually cares about his students. He is overall a good teacher, but a tough one too. He pushes us OVER the limit and show "grit" but ultimately overworks us. He also makes extra work for his classes that hurts us & which other teachers don't make their students do, and expects us to know A LOT more than is required. I feel a lot of his students would do better if he would ease things down a bit, and gives us breaks from time to time. I AM TIRED.
His teaching methods are very different from a typical teacher's methods and his methods did not help me at all. They made the class much more difficult for me and I feel like I learned nothing from the class. I would be very underprepared for the tests, quizzes, and comprehension checks because he didn't clearly teach the material. Don't get me wrong, he seems like a nice guy but he's a terrible teacher.
I absolutely hated his class, he went on so many rants. I think he is a good guy with great intentions, but his teaching style did not work well with me.
He is the best teacher ever. Commit Grit. Rise up. Step up, step in, LPS, Boom Baby Come On, Sagnasty, straight out of Saginaw, Texas, Gasprices, protein
Mr. Nuckolls teaches in a very alternative type of way that some people have a hard time dealing with, but I personally like. He really gets you to have an open mind and think about history beyond getting good grades. If you understand what he is trying to get across it changes your whole perspective on the class and life itself. He is a great guy and knows hot to get someone to RISE UP!
The first day of school i walked in to his classroom and i thought it was going to be a great class... but, i was wrong. History has not been my favorite class. When he should be helping us with the material he doesn't do it right. He rants about things that aren't relevant. And it annoys me so much bc when we take our tests i feel like i don't know anything... so instead of ranting for the entire class about irrelevant things he should actually TEACH us.
Nuckolls is awful. He rants on about ilrelivent topics consistently. For example, he ranted on about mark twain and jose Marti, who weren't relevant my at all when the time to take the test came, coincidently we studied the wrong things for the test. Nuckolls is a good guy but he's a bad teacher.
Mr. Nuckolls is a good person, but sometimes rambles on unimportant stuff like songs and games to try to teach people. He needs to focus more on making sure the students know the material instead of doing irrelevant things which are not helping the student at all. When the test comes out, students don't do well or proficient because he doesn't teach the material right until the day before the test. He needs to have more to plan out what he is going to do everyday and cut out the bad things.
Great teacher. He makes classes awesome and really intriguing and it's like the one place where being smart is fricken cool.
Mr. Nuckolls was one of my favorite teachers of all time. It's a case of you either love him, or you hate him, and I just so happened to love him. Yeah, he expects you to learn on your own, but all you really need to do is read a few pages a night.
He literally preaches about irrelevant stuff to the unit. He is a good guy, but terrible teacher.
He tella everyone to rise up yet he doesnt seem to be able to follow his own advice by maybe teaching the students history. Hes not a good teacher at all....but he is a good man and is very involved. Also be prepared for him to loose all ur papers
Mr. Nuckolls gives you tools to help you further your education. People do not realize that they have to apply what they learn and participate. I participated and I got the easiest A ever. GYM was harder. The projects are designed to further content knowledge although the first unit is rather ridiculously unnecessary. He also focus's on the civil rights movements a little to much and is rather liberal and he displays it a little to much.
i dislike his teaching methods very very much; i don't feel that i came out of that class learning a lot about history
hate him sooo much he doesnt elaborate on anything he just does something and moves on he never bothers to explain anything!!!!
Mr. Nuckolls is very nice. I enjoy the fact that we do a ton of projects in the class, however, for some it's very helpful and for others they struggle with projects so if he balances it out a little
He is the worst teacher EVER. i dont like him at all. he is so bad at teaching. we do projects half the time in that class. he doesnt teach us anything. and when he does its like a really long ppt!
He is s great man but not the greatest teacher. Lots of fun activities though. Unorganized but will let things slide. Love the man but do studying on your own from the book.
Love this guy! He's an awesome person! Doesn't do much from the book though... Read it and u will do fine. Lots of fun activities.
really nice person, bad teacher and class is such a joke
Good and friendly teacher. Not bad for a history class. :D
very enthusiatic guy. clearly loves his job. assigns projects that are very vague and unorganized. doesn't have a good schedule for anything. VERY EASY class.
Hes actually a reall good teach and helps alot and i did learna lot obviously you didnt pay attention.
a very good, nice and helpful teacher. but he was unorganized.
He is a really really bad teacher. Nice guy, but he cannot teach. He has the passion for teaching down, but lacks any skill.
This is the most unorganized class. He often lets things slide. The class is a joke. Switch out of this class if you want to learn. You will be unprepared for the final exam.
He's nice, and teaches a lot. It's a little overwhelming when finals come along, though. I would start studying before a week before finals.
knuckolls rocks the history department. hes the best. a little unorganized but still awesome.
the work he gave was easy, but it was a lot of work. I couldn't stand the class. Hes a nice guy but not a great teacher
Every time you do somthing he wants to talk to you upfront or in the hall. Just freaking come to us.
he'd be ok if he wasnt so arrogant/unorganized/rude/fake
ur the man he always hangs out at the coolest places like the vu hes cool
