Learned so much in this class not only having to deal with history. Do not make him angry and youll be fine. Term project is not even bad as long as you get it done and get your stuff in on time. Tests are easy but study for the essay questions. Super fun and interesting class you are lucky if you have him as a teacher.

Mr. Addiego is the greatest History teacher that has ever lived. If you take his class seriously, and pay attention, you will earn your A. Don't push his buttons, but don't be afraid of him either. Yes, he does talk a lot, but you will learn many things from his class. Overall, the best teacher I have ever had. F-!!!!

A note to the people who have Addiego right now or is going to have him: He's a great teacher but trust me, he is EASY. The homework has a great amount of slack. The writing is fun because you can have things your way. Its very open. Same with journal. Book reports aren't that bad because its also open, compared to high school you don't really need to follow a specific structure. Term Project is the hardest but that just needs persistence. Anyway just enjoy it while you can!

I totally agree w/ 11/29. Probably the first teacher I've ever had who I feel completely respects his students, though those who are small of mind may not see this and whine b/c of the term project. He really isn't that hard if you pay attention, and the way he teaches, it's hard not to.
