Talks about breathing, life, and personal stuff. Very open, you can talk to him about almost everything. On Fridays, he usually chats with the class more. Occasionally, he will let the class have an open book quiz, or he would give hints on the answers on tests. Apart from the homework, the class is actually not too shabby. either he will talk to you about life, read a book out loud, or you would be writing your research paper. At the end of the class you will have shavasana(?) (sleep, kinda)

MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE TEACHER OKAY. He made my 7th grade year amazing. There's a lot of work, but as long as you try your best, you should be able to maintain a high grade in his class. He assigns research papers, but they were fun to do. BEST!

I'm a freshman now (not a far leap from 7th grade, but whatever), and to this day I still consider his class the best I've had in all my years as a student. No words can describe how great of a teacher he was (and I imagine still is.) I stand in awe of his ability to inspire interest in history and language in students who could care less about school, myself included sans lack of acedemic interest. Hats off to you, Carney. There truly are no words.
