Good teaching style, he gets kids interested and actively participating. I learned a lot from him. The only problem is that he loses work.

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.

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.

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.
