Mr. Briggs tells the TRUTH about American history. He does not sugar-coat anything. He will help you if you ask and is a natural teacher. Participate in class and do all of your homework. Awesome guy.

He was my best teacher. He says things as they are, he doesn't sugar coat it and definitely makes you understand things. He also allows you to speak your own mind, which is amazing for a teacher.

Briggs is the best. He gives you his opinion on the issues we talk about in class, and when you are studying a topic in HAWS2, he will tell you what really happened, instead of what the book says. He tells you all the good stuff about ez-presidents, the stuff most people don't know and the stuff that is really interesting. He also likes to get into topics and have whole-class discussions on what everyone thinks. He's not only a good Social Studies teacher, but one of the best teachers in the whole school

I had Briggs for HAWS2 and Global Issues and loved them both! Global Issues is possibly the best class at Grandville. He switched personalities so quickly it's scary, but as long as you don't act immature you'll be fine. Make sure you participate because your grade will reflect it.

Mr. Briggs uses alternative teaching methods, a result of which being a kind of easy going, "work at your own pace so long as it gets done" kind of personality.
