Great teacher. Those who complain about him requiring tiny details don't understand how he teaches theology. He will teach you the core material and how that interacts with us in our lives. When we understand that the tiny details in the book or the packet should make sense because that's what logically follows the material we learned. As for getting sidetracked, not everything is theology. I know that's what he teaches but he also has to relate that into our lives.
Mr. Dellanno's freshman class was very... odd. He uses the terribly written "Weaver" (Christian Thought and Practice) book constantly along with Velvet Elvis to a lesser extent throughout the year. Odd style, but a great and very funny teacher. Yeah daddy!
He can be a nice guy but that's about it. He's pretty left leaning and isn't subtle about it, he'll go right after anyone who goes against his views and use students who agree with him against them. Pretty close minded for someone who calls his class a safe place to talk. He's also not great with material. If one person doesn't read some silly article he gives he gets mad and leaves it out.. That is until the test comes. With tests there's no review so you better hope you know the material.
"ish." "sniped in the dark, daddy" "Im on the edge, like a blade, daddy." "Got' dam." "(lion purr)."
His class is really the only one I thoroughly enjoy going to. With that said, he's an ambiguous test grader. Nice guy though
Senior Life Honors: He's one of only a few at SHP who actually cares about you and your life. Follow his advice. He's very funny. Also, just do the work and you'll be fine. Overall, extremely good
Great teacher. Loads of fun and he tries to tell you a good way to live your life.
Don't throw him a low fastball if you're playing stickball.
Although I really didn't like the class much for most of the year, it's worth it at the end. In march and april you begin talking about marriage and relationships. The stuff I learned then and the advice Dellanno gave is some of the best and most important I have heard my entire life.
He leans too far to the left. He is not open to opposing views which is ironic, considering that he believes his class is conducive to an open forum of ideas.
your the first theology teacher that can keep me awake...
