If you do what you're supposed to do, it'll be a breeze. I sat in the front, answered a question each day, and did all my homework in class. His rants and catch phrases are also hilarious (Well, I don't know. Maybe you should have read the book.)

I was lucky enough to have this guy for 2 years (con law and gov) in con law the trials are awesome even though they are a lot of work. He is funny when his insults arnt directed toward you. In gov it's a different story, since he actually has to teach. A little funny moments here and there but mainly extremely boring. He isn't fun and his insults were way better in con law. Drop his gov class and take con law.

Mr. Pierce is a smart teacher, but sometimes he has trouble translating his knowledge in a way that students can understand. He often goes on tirades, and if you are unlucky he will single you out in front of the class. Other than that he can be pretty funny. The key to his con law class is to pay attention and don't make the same mistake twice!

Even though at times he singles you out and goes on his one hour scream fest, Mr. Pierce is a great teacher. he has a funny sense of humor and made con law.......interesting. The constructive criticism will hurt and you may never win an argument, but the trials are hilarious, even though you basically learn nothing. fun guy

though he does challenge your thinking and teach in an interesting way, he can be extremely offensive and inulting at inapropriate times. he has to learn how to teach/intrigue the class without stomping all over students to the point of severe intimidation. stay secure in front of him.

Although his AP euro class is boring and he's rude, sarcastic, and offensive, I have to admit You'll be walking out at the end of the year with some memorable, funny moments.

Mr.Pierce challenges his students to think and accept personal responsibility. Anyone who did'nt like him obviously failed the challenge.

Mr. Pierce treats his students as adults. Those who cry are immature. The man gives great lecutres and will get you a good grade on the ap test. ok, so he has his quirks, but that makes class more interesting. hey, i got a 5 on the ap euro test.

Mr. Pierce is the most borring, rude, confusing teacher. I think he made it his personal goal to make people in his class cry. Never take con law. He yelled at me for getting help with homework, and by the end of the semester he barely even knew my name.
