Ted, Gutshall is by far one of the best teachers I have ever had at Smoky Hill High School and is the best Social Studies teacher that I have ever had as well. I prognosticate that all of his kids in his future as a teacher will agree with this.

he really makes you think. at the time, i was interested in my life, but in class i starting thinking about bigger pictures. some people didn't like the work, and maybe i was one of them, but i still remember a lot from his classes. i guess school isn't fun, but i did learn some good things and it will help me later on.

i had him for american government this year, and its probably been one of my easier classes, that being said i did learn quite a bit. he isnt the teacher i would take for an AP class, but other then that he's pretty good. we watched a movie pretty much every class, sometimes more then one, the movies really related to what we were doing though, and were quite entertaining.

I thought he was very good at being able to relate whatever we were learning or watching (yes there are a lot of movies) to present day. I found if you paid attention even the slightest you could do well.

i don't think you can ever watch too many movies. people don't give him a lot of credit, but he knows full well what he's talking about. and i love the scenario's he would give us. he would ask us how things would go if certain events happened differently. like the civil war.

The amount of busywork was often inappropriate, even for an AP class, but he should get better with experience. He's a totally cool guy, but shows too many vids

Gutshall is a cool teacher, but won't prepare you for the APHG test. All we do is read articles, answer questions, watch movies, and read more articles.

I like Mr . Gutshall as a person he is one of the coolest but as a teacher he is unorganized and needs to learn how to teach an AP class.

Has no clue how to prepare a class for an AP Test. My math teacher knows more about human geography than he does.
