Had him in the mid-1990s, and I see not much has changed. Lots of work but no discussion of anything remotely interesting. Too bad he never actually debated/discussed/investigated history.

Don't like him!! All we ever do is handouts then we never even go over them, so you don't know if you're getting the right anwsers. Then he doesn't tell you what to study!!!

His class was boring. He was always answering the phone and playing old movies. I caught him playing favorites with some students. He can be very cold and unhelpful.

Barren is a hard teacher, and he is a work natzi! his tests are often hard and his finals are even harder, he's a good teacher and his lectures do help! Listen and you'll do well.

Plays favorites, and treats lots of people i've talked to unfairly. When you go up to his desk to ask a question, he acts cold and hostile, i try to steer clear of him

I absolutely love Mr. Barren this year! He gives alot of work, but it helps. Sometimes his tests can hurt my grade though because I never know what to study.
