Mr. Craven makes history interesting. I hated history until I took his APUSH class, and now I love history. He doesn't give a ton of homework, but it's imperative to do well on his in class essays. He really helps students out when they need it.

He is one of the best teachers I have had all year. Never have I seen a man so absolutely absorbed with knowledge, it appears as though he can answer ANY question you have. He loves learning and people who have a good brain. Overall amazing teacher.

Mr. Craven showed me how to finally be interested in History. I had him for two years and it was great. He's sarcastic and has a really dry sense of humor. He taught me how to write a good essay by and has given me so many memories to look back on. My AP US History class two years ago was one of the best classes I've EVER taken. His Freshmen class is really great, I enjoyed. Those who don't are looking for someone too serious and should stop taking him so seriously. Let him be Craven

Must be another winey freshman. I LOVED his classes. He can be hard at times but you will be thankful later. Plus he is so funny! You will work hard but also laugh a lot in history.

One of the smartest teachers I have ever had. He can be monotone at times but I think he knows that and tries to liven things up (which is hard because some points in US history are SOO boring.)

Probably one of the better teachers are DC. He's teaching at a good pace, and also is ahead of the other history class. Clear during lectures, doesn't "ramble" such as other teachers. Writing, he is very critical on which I think is the best, because in the future, writing is the most important, and he helps you get your writing skills very good.

Mr Cravin is one of the best history teachers at DC. He is very clear and is a great lecturer. His deadpan, dry humor makes the class very entertaining. You will probably learn more about writing a good essay from him than you will from your english teacher.
