I took AP Econ with Mr. Hinkle and he was by far my favorite teacher at Blair. He is one of the funniest guys I've ever known. It's a shame he doesn't do stand up. He mostly just gives out busy work and you'll have to self-study a lot. However, his class is super chill and he's really understanding of all the other things you have going on in your life. Nonetheless, I learned a lot of life lessons from his stories and he's really a great guy. He's a complete savage and always keeps it real.
Love him to death. But will you learn anything from him in this class? The answer is what? It's what? The answer, of course, is no, big guy. Just read the textbook a little, the topics are simple. It'll be a very enjoyable class, he's a hilarious guy.
Mr. Hinkle is one of the nicest teachers in the school. That being said, READ THE BOOK OR YOU WILL FAIL. The poster before me is right. however, his class can provide a relaxing atmosphere in which to nap or do homework or study. He's pretty chill, but don't push your luck. He's one of the last teachers at Blair who is still perfectly willingly to fail you if you deserve it.
Mr. Hinkle is a nice person, but he doesn't teach. It's easy to pass the class, but forget about getting an A on his tests, because he hasn't taught any of it. I've learned to ignore him and self-study. Oh, and he doesn't emphasize the importance of reading the book, but god help you if you think you can get higher than a D on a test if you haven't. Just don't expect him to teach. He doesn't explain, his tests are hard, he goes on waay to many tangents. Honestly, you're better of self-studying.
He never actually teaches anything but his exams are crazy hard. And forget about trying to talk to him outside of class for help.
He teaches economics in a college like environment, and everyone learns very well.
Everyone loved hinkle, but I thought he was just so-so. Maybe I wasnt witty enough to catch his humor.
Teaching was solid, but somewhat dry. Honestly could've been more engaging.
Don't expect him to know your name unless it's one syllable. He'll just call you "guy."
Hinkle's class was by far my favorite class senior year. He's not that helpful, but he's enthusiastic and funny, and lets you sleep in class, which is a big help. Just do the worksheets he gives you.
I don't know any other individual in the world who is enthusiastic at teaching with 2 hour sleep days. He probably drinks a lot of coffee to get him going though, can't blame him.
Very funny. Means well, but doesn't teach all that well. He doesn't explain.
easy and interesting class, but he never really answers anyone's questions
Don't remember too much from the class, but is really funny guy
fun to have. hard to fall asleep in his class because he's so enthusiastic.
