Without a doubt the greatest teacher I've ever had. Yes his tests are hard, but with effort you can succeed in his class. Don't be afraid to ask for help. He actually WANTS you to do well. His passion for the subject makes learning it that much easier, and he truly made me fall in love with history. The class gives you test taking and critical thinking skills that greatly prepare you for the future. I wish more teachers were like him.

Mr. Landsberg is the best teacher I have ever had in my time at Franklin Regional. The man is incredibly knowledgeable on world history and does a phenomenal job of tying ideas together.

Mr. Landsberg was one of my favorite teachers in high school. He really cares about his students and their learning. If you really invest in his courses and take away as much as you can, you will have a positive experience. He certainly is a tough grader and his exams are hard but its all worth it. He taught me much more than European history, only because I was invested in learning and listening to him. He gets a bad rep on here but don't worry if you have him, hes great.

Mr. Landsberg was a very opinionated teacher, which was heavily reflected in his exams. He comes off as intimidating and a not very friendly man. But he isn't that bad. He is a bit arrogant though. His Honors International Studies class was interesting and I learned the most from his class. His class was eye opening and enjoyable to listen to. But his exams were nearly impossible. Consider a "C" a good grade on his exams..... He is very knowledgeable though in his field.

I love the class. I'm learning so much, but the grading he does for the tests is ridiculous. I'm a smart kid, and even I can't do better than a failing grade on his tests. I pulled of a 65% on his midterm and I was elated. A midterm-- a D. I hate his test

Mr. Landsberg is an excellent teacher. He gives great lectures. However, his tests are out of control. They are confusing, and ultimately test you on his opinion instead of true facts. He wants you to believe his opinion instead of having your own. Always

Mr. Landsberg is my favorite teacher. He makes history easy to listen to, which is some feat. He always brings out a laugh from my class, even early in the morning. Hard, yes but he'll help if you ask for it. Plus, he has great musical taste! :)

Not very well liked but not quite as bad as you may hear. Yes his tests are hard but you just need to stay on top of things...and remember his opinion is usually the answer on his tests! take advantage of easy points and remember course themes.

he's a lot of hard work. more like a college professor then a high school teacher. go into his class with a studious attitude, put in a lot of effort, and most importantly WRITE DOWN HIS OPINION cause it's usually what he tests and do reading assignments.

Hands down the best teacher I've ever had. He actually makes you *think* (a concept lost on students today). He has high expectations of his students and expects them to work hard to earn an A.

Mr. Landsberg cares about the topic and his opinion. Not the academic success of the students. Tries to get students to think deeply about the subject matter but an opinion opposed to him is wrong.

Mr. Landsberg doesn't care about you - in fact, he'll tell you that the first day. But he is a very comprehensive teacher and delivers the material well. He also have a good grasp of knowledge of the outside world, not just class material.Def. take!

I had him for AP Euro and he was a GREAT teacher. Class would sometimes trail to boredom near the end, but overall, it was a fairly easy class but nonetheless comprehensive. Will see the overall results when the AP exam results come.

I love the class. I can't stand the teacher. Every assignment and test given are his opinion! If you're in honors, weep hard: you didn't get Fielder. I study. A lot. For the first time ever I got a 92% in his class this 9 weeks. And I am amazed.

I do not like Mr Landsberg... much. His tests are IMPOSSIBLE. For each test I study 10 ish hours over a spread of days, type notes e.t.c and I get D's. On the bright side I've learned the most I ever have in a history course. Pretty contradictory.
