Class time is spent either watching videos or listening to him lecture you. If you do the homework, it's the easiest grade you'll ever get. Most kids will just skim through the textbook for the answer, then complain that tests are hard. Actually read the text, and I can guarantee you will get a 100 on the test. By reading, I mean reading, not skimming or listening to music. Also, it's very easy to get him distracted :) Just bring up sports or star wars.

Always watching videos ./. Not that I mide video it's just that when we take the test we have no idea about a lot of stuff because we always just watch videos and we have to remember from that

Best teacher I've ever had, easy to talk to, and willing to break down details do the simplest remainder. Had him for both Modern World and AP European History, makes the AP course seem like a regular with the level of depiction that occurs. Best teacher at Hall, personable and funny, shows a lot of videos, yet allows the class to debate and is a great moderator

Mr. Devine's intellegence is not demonstrated as well as it could be in his classes, this of course is an understatement to end most understatements. Mr. Devine is probably a genius with the obvious fault of being lazy therefore his classes are incredibly easy. However if you ask him questions about anything (and i mean anything) in the world he can answer them to the point that a 5th grader could understand, he is excellent for debating and bouncing theories/ideas off of. Don't Let his laziness fool you!
