he knows a lot about what he teaches. but he never stops talking. at least 8 people would sleep at once throughout the class. he talks so long that you dot listen and when he talks about actual history its hard to listen. he gives random assignments and his tests are 80 questions. So you really have to study. He also gives way to many detentions. he forgets why gives them also.
The class was filled with great lessons on our nation. Mr. Allen explained topics perfectly and thoroughly. We looked at topics from many different viewpoints. This helped me develop my opinions.
i can't even describe how bored I get, he talked for an hour and ten minutes straight, in his monotone voice, slowly pacing around the room.
In this class I learned so much. Mr. Allen helped me develop my own opinions and helped me become a better citizen.
We went on a family vacation during the school year. Mr. Allen was very helpful. All assignments were available on his website and my daughter was able to keep up with the class. She returned to school without missing a beat!
Mr. Allen prepared me for my high school AP U.S. History and American Government classes. I have a strong knowledge of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Mr. Allen explained difficult ideas in a way that I could understand.
He is a nice guy but he goes off topic a lot and talks way too long where all the students zone out. When he is talking he should have some teaching method to get the kids attention in a fun manner. Overall, he is an average teacher :)
great teacher, sometimes a bit boring
Talked off topic for a whole block period. I took a nap
He is super annoying and gets off topic a lot.
Took a bit to understand his sense of humor but he's funny and nice once you know him outside of class :) take the time during lunch
I have him this year. He is the worst teacher ever! He drones on and talks about random topics, innapropriate stuff... swears, and gives detention whenever he's in a bad mood for nothing. Allen sucks.
Mr. Allen is an o.k. teacher. He gives us what seems enless lectures in class, and bores all of us. I really want to switch out of his class, but we'll see what happens
He seperates boys and girls. Which I don't like. He doesn't make it very intersting.
His class was sooooo boring! He just chooses random topics to talk about to fill the time so he doesn't have to teach. Also, he puts his opinion into everything he says.
He was a great teacher but his speeches were long and kind of boring. I sat in the front and I learned a lot. His quizzes and tests were easy. Not many of them.
This class was one of the worst history classes I have ever taken. Would have been much better had there been no art projects. He graded based on artistic talent, not knowledge of history.
Mr. Allen was the greatest History teacher ever! I am so prepared for 10th grade history because of him! Thanks a lot!
What a cool class. None of the knowledge was practical in real life, but it was interesting to learn.
Test every Friday, but he gives you the answers beforehand so it's really easy. Watch videos alot. One homework per week, usually a map.
OH YEAH!!! he let us perform "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" he also let us watch the movie... it was fun
