He's an easy teacher and gives everyone a high grade. He doesn't give out any quiz or test.
And he doesn't follow the lesson plan, which may be a good or bad thing.
But seriously, do you learn anything from him beside all the movies and cultures?

Mr. Babstock is an AMAZING teacher. He teaches in a way that is laid back but on point and focused on the lesson. He is one of the smartest people I have ever met. He knows his literature.

Babstock is my favorite teacher in the entire school. nice guy, laid back as long as you do the work he asks, and he's a war genius. he's one of the few teachers that taught me so well that I still remember his class years later. 10/10 would recommend

I had him for freshman year english back in 2003 and can honestly say he's one of the best teachers I've had at THHS. He's very down to earth, has a great sense of humor, and makes the class fun and interactive instead of tedious and boring. Even though he can give alot of hw, you feel motivated to put every effort into it because of the kind of laid back and fun atmosphere he sets in class. You can tell he truly loves what he does!

OH MY GOSH I LOVE MR. BABSTOCK! Probably one of the greatest teachers I've ever had. Because of him, I'm now obsessed with World War II and Hitchcock films. He is so knowledgeable and makes you THINK, which is probably why I feel so smart after leaving his class. This guy is truly the best. I feel bad for the students that never had him. Plus, he's a pretty easy grader if you make an effort!
