He made me want to go to school. In his class we discussed what was going on in the world TODAY. He taught his students how the past would affect the future, how the past must be understood in order to comprehend the present. Mr. Kaplan let me use my voice, which meant and will always mean the world to me. He showed the class to think for themselves. I'll always appreciate him. A great teacher. He made me happy.

Mr. Kaplan is easily one of the best teachers at Hamilton High School. You won't learn much us history in his class but you'll learn many much more important things. He actually succeeded in convincing me to try in my classes instead of just getting by, unlike the many teachers who had tried before him

Every human being should have a teacher like Mr. Kaplan. One cannot truly assess the world around them without the tools he gives you for doing so. He gives you college-level thinking and has you make the connections.

Satire+liberal+genius = Kaplan. I can see how his personality might irritate you, but you have to deal with it. This isn't a "history class" in the remember-your-dates sense. This is what every history class should be.
