I majored in Arabic and work in Washington due to AP World with him. APUSH helped too - taught me more about this country than I ever imagined. Good combination. Webb rocks.

Knows his subject really really well, makes his exam super hard.Webb considers himself a visionary, best to make him think that you do to. His class is all about getting on his good side early. If he loves you, he will add random points to your grade for no reason, if not then he will take them away.

Go into APUSH with the expectation that it is, in fact, the hardest class in the high school. You won't probably ever get a 90 on a test, maybe an 80 a couple of times. Shoot for 70s on tests and you'll probably be fine. Mr. Webb is an incredibly knowledgable and amazing teacher. He does have a method to his madness. His tests are hard so you study hard. The more you study the better you'll do on the AP Test. Everyone in the class gets either a 4 or 5, with a large majority being 5's.

Good teacher, felt so extremely prepared and aced the APUS exam. Favoritism is rampant, and he's a bit moody. Also his 'jokes' can get obnoxious by the end of the year. Really hard class too.

He is the Cedric the Entertainer of history. His talking during tests could pass for a SNL monologue. He is a hard teacher, but his PeeWee Herman impressions are incredible. Whoever ripped off Tom Roake Deej joke is the kind of fool who fails his class.

I love him to death, but the thing with him is that you only like him if you're smart. Ask someone if they like him, if they say yes, they're smart, otherwise they're bitter because they could'n't pass his class. He's an awesome guy.
