you have to get used to his teaching style. i personally found him hilarious. he is not afraid to shut down kids in class who are clearly sucking up. i took his senior elective and i thought it was really interesting. we went on field trips all the time!

People who hate this class are lazy and need to stop complaining. Yes, Doc K is difficult, but he gives students plenty of room to explore. He isn't well liked because students either have no idea what to do with the freedom, or don't get his jokes. He's the man.

Somewhat vague and boring in class, but it's impossible to dislike him as a person.

the quality of the class depends on the students...if you have good kids in your class who have a lot to say and have personality, you'll be fine. but if nobody talks expect a lot of awkward silences

What can I say? Mr. Cone is just simply the man. Tests you on in-class info and is famous for his yearly giant pumpkins. Mr. Cone knows Bio b/c he does bio.

classes aren't too hot. he has this certain affinity for inclass essays and pop-free writes. during the term I found his grading tough, but managed quite well with my final grade

To a degree, how much you get out of his class depends on how much you put in-- his essay topics can be really wonderful and rewarding if you take the time to "make them your own"

Cone is a cool guy. I have him for microbio. Most of all, he is very fair. Don't expect any curveballs on tests, but his questions won't be particularly easy either.
