May 13, 2014 "Today we are going to watch the next episode of The Century. Write an impression for your log. (insert name of student) Get the lights"
That sums up this class.
Also, you can write horrid essays as long as you use big words.
And play baseball.

Dec 02, 2011 You'l mostly need to depend on yourself for your AP preparation. Do the assigned readings each night, otherwise you're stuck the day before the test reading 20 pages of that book...He can be kind of p Flag Rating

Jun 10, 2011 You are on your own for the AP test. He is "Mr. Nice Guy" and is not helpful at all. I felt that his class was an overall waste of time. Flag Rating

Jun 07, 2011 Very nice guy,not the best teacher. you'll need to learn how to prepare for the AP test on your own because his class is not intensive enough. Class is easy though, and he's funny sweet. Flag Rating

May 23, 2011 Mr. Rife is of average intelligence though not very knowledgeable. He seems to think that this is OK, preferring pedagogical appearances to true academic pursuit. He certainly gave up at some point. Flag Rating

Apr 25, 2010 Had him for U.S. History Honors. His class was super easy, but we just watch movies in class every day, doesn't prepare you for the AP test at all. Be sure to start studying early on your own, or FAIL Flag Rating
