He was my AP World teacher and I totally did not feel prepared for the AP test. Its pretty easy to get an A but its because you can just copy notes and the tests are online. When it comes to actual knowledge, i feel like i didnt know much. Right before the AP we did things to cram the information but i still dont think it was enough.
Codde was a great teacher and it's not hard to come to class because he teaches by talking. He tries very hard to help his students, and i learned a lot from his lectures. Very straightforward too, but exams could be a bit too hard so study.
Mr. Codde is a swell guy. He knows more than the average history teacher and loves to share his views and knowledge which makes for a great classroom experience. All year I have had a magnificent time in his class and my interest in history has skyrocketed because of him. All around good teacher, I hope you have the oppurtunity of having his class.
Codde's a good teacher to have if you don't care about the class. Unlike Nemec, (great teacher btw) he has no knowledge about AP World and he is very unfair with grading. Everyone in Nemec's class gets A's while everyone in Codde gets B's. This is because Nemec gives meaningful lectures while Codde teaches his own thing sometimes not even related to the subject. The tests are really easy though. Just cross your fingers and hope you get Nemec and not Codde.
I can't believe the ratings on Mr. Codde. I guess I can understand people liking him because he is easy, but he is not a good teacher. He is lazy and doesn't teach a thing. To top it off he is highly opinionated and very ignorant, NOT a winning combination. Not to mention he looks for opportunities to insult students at every turn. Codde is the reason they invented tenure. I would advise all students who actually want to pass the AP test to avoid this teacher at all costs.
Mr. Codde is an awesome teacher if u get on his good side. Just talk to him about sports (mostly football), current news events, and do your homework. If you text in class, dont do your homework, and dont pay attention ever, he wont be as nice.
Mr. Codde is very opinionated, and tries to subtly force his views onto others. He knows history very well, making his tests and quizzes easier. He shows videos almost everyday in class, but often times he shows videos that are not history related (Pink Floyd preparing to tour The Wall, Free Climbing, Mathematically gifted kid). He is unprofessional during class due to his frequent swearing, mocking, and singling out other students. He is just not a good teacher. some like him, some don't.
Knows a lot about history. He's very opinionated about political issues and sometimes the videos he shows in class are about debatable conspiracy theories but he knows what he's talking about. He's pretty funny although he gets pretty frustrated if he doesn't feel like essays/tests are good enough. He has pretty high standards too and he doesn't curve tests.
he's a very cool guy, and he's very fun to be with in football.
Summer school works very well, knows what he's doing, and does what he needs to do. Just get it done and in, and you're set! Pretty fun guy too :)
great guy...not the best softball coach but he is fun to joke around with!
coolest guy ever...went to his off season class 3 times aand he still passed me...thanks, keep up the good work
