Pretty knowledgeable about human geo and geography in general, but if you have him as a teacher, be prepared to rarely see him in class, as he is absent every other week, either due to his sister throwing a grape in his eye, or various other health issues.
OK. The only possible way you're going to get an A in his class is if you have prior knowledge about every continent in the world, study EVERYTHING on his blog and power points which NEVER help on the tests anyways because he aways just gives you random information you NEVER see on the test, or you cheat on everything(; He knows what he's talking about, but all he normally does is talk about Baseball and he NEVER reviews for tests with you. You basically have to teach yourself. Good luck.
doesn't teach and everyone cheats in his class. theres always a 20-30 point curve on the quiz. im glad i took his class though
Great person, horrible teacher. Most of your grade comes from worksheets he grades for completion. Most fail his tests, but there's always a 20-30 point curve. :)
makes us do busy work mostly. he won't even look at most of you work. you can curse him out in the middle of the page and he won't notice. cool, but kinda lazy and doesn't teach much.
Easiest teacher ever. You won't learn much, but you can expect a 20 point curve on the final. (for pre-AP geography) He's also absent 1/4 of the school year, so that's a always plus.
All he talked about in class was sports. He acts as if he knows everything and yet doesn't do anything in class. He definitally has favorites, basically anyone who will talk about sports with him!
He is the best teacher ever!! Just do the stupid worksheets and you will be fine. Knowing stuff about the Simpsons will help some too!
having mr vancoverdan as a teacher was one of my best high school experiences.
i had him last year hes a fun teacher and very helpful
I had Mr. Van Coverdan for half a year and his quizzess and tests are the easiest!!! I got all 100's and then switched to Mr. Wainright's Pre-AP class. :)
He is a very good teacher but, he gives way too much work, and has limited make-up time, so try to never miss a day!
hes cool but he gives too much work for a regular class. But usually he tells you whats going to be on the test which makes them easy.
