One of my favorite teachers in the beginning of the year but now I see him as someone who will only lose my work. Knows a lot of intresting stuff an love the class but he's so unorganized!
Good teaching style, he gets kids interested and actively participating. I learned a lot from him. The only problem is that he loses work.
Really amazing teacher!! Learned a lot from him! Very liberal of course and will bombard you with liberal propaganda. However, in all I owe my interest in political science to him!
VERY left wing. He never updates grade and constantly loses assignments. He always says check his website for homework assignments but never puts anything on his website. As long as you do the busy wo
head of the history department can do anything he wants....... its cool though less work for me
Had some interesting discussions in this class, but really lazy teacher. Gets in grumpy moods sometimes. Maybe he's better with history classes though, just had him for soc.
Absolutely amazing teacher. Yes he will brainwash you with liberal propaganda, but his teaching methods and lecture style are awesome
he was one of the most interesting and funnest teachers in northgate.
Spodawg was one of the most interesting dudes in Northgate. He never did anything too difficult, but he was a ton of fun especially for arguments and class discussions. Love the man. Go Spodawg!!!!
One of the best teachers I've had. Although, now that I look back, his teaching methods suits college classrooms rather than high schools.
very left wing....but he appreciates good arguments do not come tardy to his class as he will take it out on you. In class discussions are pretty fun but not much is focused on learning
Very left-wing, sometimes leaks into teaching. GREAT class discussions, made history less abstract. At the same time- we talk politics more than hard facts. Fun- not good if you're taking sat2s.
Good luck getting him to return a phone call before all hope is lost.
85% of the time in that class was a waste. fun class, but you don't learn much so don't expect to do well on satII-us history. he showed a lot of movies compared to other teachers. cool guy but lazy.
We never really did anything. It was honestly a fun class and he was a great teacher. Sometimes though, he would show a movie, and that movie would be a really awesome one! Use it as a study session.
awesome, no tests, all in class essays. a little bit hard to get used to regular history classes after him though. cool guy.
Best teacher I ever had. He may be left-wing but is he still registered as a Republican?
MR SPODEN IS REALLLLLY COOL! your reallly (really) lucky if you have him!! I wish he was my social studies teacher!! One of the bestest teachers in Northgate!!
Beware -- you'll be taught only ultra-liberal points of view -- watch a little Fox news to balance him out and you'll be alright.
Good guy, Easy class, you even learn a lot. I just hope you can deal with his ultra-left wing political beliefs.
Although i dont always agree with him politically, i have to say he is one of the coolest teachers. Class is always fun, except when we do busy work!
Spodawg is more than my teacher, I even consider him a friend. he really makes US History fun, and is one of the best teachers I've ever had
I might not have agreed with most of what Mr Spoden had to say, but I always enjoyed class discussions/debates and he was always fair to all student's opions
AMAZING person. will help anyone out. such a good teacher... really understands his students and wants to make things fun.
best teacher i've had; really made class fun. must be ready to talk a lot.
