Robinette has a different way of teaching. He expects you to actually read the textbook on your own and than come to class with any questions to ask. When it comes to note taking, he list a bunch of terms that he expects you to learn and remember on your own.
Perhaps if he didn't talk about his beloved sons half the time, 1/3 of his classes wouldn't fail each semester. No really, while he is knowledgeable in RL issues...you get no proper preparation for the exams. Almost everything we go over in class isn't on the exams. You know when looking up a word in the dictionary, it lists several definitions? Every question on the tests are similar to like the NINTH definition (so obscure, you'd never recognize it). Only the cheaters ever pass...AVOID ROB!
He will seriously challenge you! The only class at Valencia that requires students to actually strive academically how they are supposed to. If you're going to college this class will seriously prepare you. Robinette is seriously hilarious, I'm so glad I had him for gov. He taught me what it's like to actually work for my grade and not just by doing worksheets. Do the reading and you'll do fine!
He knows his stuff. But his teaching/note taking methods are something to get use to...asks a lot of personal questions and judges/criticizes your answer.
Great class to have in H.S. He teaches the class just like a political science 101 course from college, it really prepares kids for whats next to come. I had an easy time in the class as he never ga
Easy class, funny and nice man...but he doesn't respect the privacy of one's political view.
ask for help and he will help you...his classes are difficult but if you read every night and know what the content is about then you will pass. he tries to show us what the real world is like.
Mr. Robinett is by far the best teacher at Valencia! Lazy and stupid people never like him. He is very straightforward and very intelligent. He helps students realize the importance of working hard.
I though he was cool. Be sarcastic back and I think he likes it.
People need to get over his reputation & make their own judgements. He's fair & teaches well, students just tend to be lazy.What, is Gov't suppsed to be easy?
Mr. Robinette is really hard. But he is a good teacher. You really learn in Psych
