I freaking love this guy <3 But you'll fail the AP exam. Learn nothing all year, can get away with anything, including but not limited to stealing test answer keys, changing your quarter grade, etc.

He is nice, but not a very good teacher. You will be teaching yourself the governments.

He's a nice guy but not much of a teacher. We mostly go over powerpoints during class and assigns us homework on a weekly basis. If you don't pay attention to the powerpoints then you won't learn anything since he doesn't give out class work.

You can turn in ANYTHING late for full credit... just be sure to act slightly remorseful and apologetic about it. He's a really nice guy, but he won't teach you anything. He'll tell you to read the book; make sure you do it. Also, buy a study guide for the AP exam; you'll need it.

If you pay attention in class you'll learn something, but for class assignments, and book work, you're mostly on your own. He does loss lots of things though, and denies it.

Be prepared for the worst class if you end up with him. Chooses favorites early on and sticks with them for the year, trust me you'll know if your one of the favorites!

Class gets off topic so quickly. Not very organized and doesn't prepare you well for tests. You can BS your assignments and still get 100 on them.

Mr H is awesome! if you somewhat take notes, you will do fine on his tests, also he does alot of group work, which he grades so easy. Everything you turn into the class folder receives a 100. Fun

The man's great - can be quite opinionated at times, but at least he lets you have your opinion without getting all preachy on you. His class is easy - no study required! Just do your projects & use common sense.

He's a cool guy, but not a very good teacher. Its mostly just busy work in his class, don't expect to many group projects. He is funny though.

Write the papers, but don't bother doing the projects he assigns, because there's a good chance he'll forget about them.
