He is like a walking encyclopedia. He knows everything there is to know about Biology and seems to have a humungous interest in it. He is pretty helpul, but really hard, but he has to be because of IB
I can actually relate to Mr.Bratteng. He knows everything and can answer any question fired from any angle in the subject. If he just develops a better method of teaching, he will be reach new heights
While he may seem intimidating, he is pretty cool. He knows more than Bray, that is for sure, but Bray is better at explaining.
He knows a lot, but he tries to explain it a hard way, but we can't comprehend it. He is a really cool guy, and he is funny!
I have to say, out of all the teachers I had this year, Mr.Bratteng for Accel sci was the greatest. I loved his class and could not wait for it. SCIENCE (w/ Bratteng) RULES!
good..but not so good... like doesnt explain as well as Bray
Extremely smart. Knows his stuff. I'd say he knows everything there is to know about everything. He just can't convey it well, and is extremely hard. I have respect for him.
I have him this year, and he is more than you might think. He knows alot and I like how his lessons tie into one another. His quizzes are kinda hard though...
As much as he gives out hard work, he knows what he's talking about. I feel bad for nothing taking his lessons seriously a few years back - I've grown older to know he's a very very smart teacher.
Truly amazing teacher. His qwerks and vast knowledge of biology (though not as much of chemistry) made his class the instant favorite of the year and one I will remember for my whole life.
Mr Bratteng knows everything! it's really frightening!!! but his quizzes are kinda hard though...
I had him for accel. sci the one year he taught it and consequently, I learned nothing about chemistry or physics. I've heard he's quite brilliant in biology though.
Mr Bratteng has gone too far with evolution spending almost a full 6 weeks on the subject. My son even says he lied to the principle and said he spent only 2 or 3 days!
In my experiences with Steve Arthur Bratteng I have found he does in fact know boatloads about biology, but his class is boring and the tests are horrific.
He definately knows what he's talking about, however the whole teaching the class so they have any idea what he's talking about....not sooo much. Terrible tests!
Pre-AP Bio, not the best of times. My friend found out he teaches from a college Bio book and the pictures on his slideshows were taken exactly from it. Good luck finding it.
Had him for accel sci. Felt like I didn't get much of a physics or chemistry education from him, but boy can I identify pictures of cells and organelles.
His lessons seemed to have no organization, and he was obsessed with reproduction. A fascinating man, admittedly, but doesn't seem to much enjoy teaching.
He was an ok teacher. Knew what he was talking about, and at some points I actualy enjoyed the class, despite him hating me.
stick with biology he takes the fun out for the other subjects
Took Accel Sci from him. He's good at his own subject, but lukewarm at best w/other sciences. Bit too interested in reproduction.
might seem bad now but next year you'll appreciate it
This has to be one of my least favorite teachers of all of high school.
The more blunt he is, the more enjoyable the class can be.
