He's a pretty cool guy in general, but DAMN is he boring! I mean, history is a boring topic anyways, but his monotone doesn't help. He does do a lot of cool group work which keeps things interesting, but watch out for his lectures!

His teaching style relies heavily on textbook. Taking the notes (or, in my case, not) really killed my grade. He has a rather monotone voice that kind of helps zoning out. Its pretty easy to drift off and not pay attention in his class. He's not the worst teacher, but he is most certainly not the best. He tries, though.

He is the best, like he's funny and you can joke with him but he can also teach the subject really well. History in general is boring, but his lessons are what is going to be on the test so it's good to pay attention. Also he makes great puns.

chill teacher, if you have any common sense he will like you. He knows all his stuff right off the top of his head. He is old-fashioned though. Also his class seems intimidating at first but it really isn't

Relaxed teacher. History itself is just boring, but still manages to provide good discussions. Just sit back, relax and let his PBS documentaries teach you.

He is a good guy, but for AP he is rediculously hard. Tests are very difficult even if you studied a good amount. He does curve though and gives corrections.
