After taking APUSH, We The People, and Economics with Knierim, I can safely say that he's one of the greatest teachers in the history of teacherdom. Be on time, laugh at the jokes, do the work, enjoy the experience!

I found his class extremely difficult, his explanations and lectures never stuck with me. I'm not sure how much history stuck with me. He is an entertaining and nice guy.

Very good course overall but get the class more involved by using less straight lecture and add activities and maybe review days.
