Phenomenal teacher. Generally easy class because he is so knowledgeable about history. He has minimal information on slides and can recall the smallest of stories just from a heading on a powerpoint. He'll tell tons of stories but most of the information you need to know is written on the slides directly. You can multitask easily in his class if you want. Tests are standard, multiple choice/matching/fill ins. He's pretty accommodating and very nice. You don't really need to read the book.
he is really hard ):
Mr. Collins has an interesting attitude the way he teaches students. He throw history in with back storys, and his lectures are always interesting. Instead of reading from slides, he is able to look once and speak to the class with vast knowledge for that subject. Funny teacher, great at history, his old documentaries can be tedious, but look past that.
not a good teacher. He just expects you to memorize everything in your notes and in the book. All of his tests and quizzes are multiple choice and he does not give projects, essays, or use any other forms of assessment.
Great teacher. Uses powerpoints, but doesn't have to look at them - he knows it by heart! Provides humor and facts. One of the better teachers at SJ.
TC is the man. one of the best teachers in the school
