Worst high school class of all time, AINEC.

It would have helped if I read a page of the book and didn't have daily quizzes. Completely BS'd my way to a 3 on the exam in that class.

Yeah, I have a similarly low work ethic. I do the take home quizzes and study them before the tests and that's all. I'd probably be more inclined to put more into it if I had a teacher who could run the class properly (taught middle school for many years before this year) instead of having a total cluster**** going on.

I loved that class. 'Course, I've been a political geek just about since I could read (which really isn't much of an exaggeration), have a degree in Poli-sci, took the AP Civics test without taking the course and got a 5 (ridiculously easy, BTW), so on and so forth.

Of course, with the wrong teacher I could absolutely see how that course could quickly turn into rote memorization of uninteresting dates. If you have a teacher who understands that history is a story, not a sequence of events, history class can be wonderful. US History is incredibly colorful and dynamic, and still incredibly fresh. We're still fighting over the fallout of much of the stuff you'll be learning about. Hell, this crowd is from the South. You must have felt how raw feelings about the Civil War still are, the tensions of integration, busing, and the civil rights movement. Hell, just these last two years there's been massive racially charged stress in Wake County over the school board's redistricting.

You can't escape the weight of history- understanding how the culture and system you're in was forged is critical to shaping its future.

Apologies for injecting serious thoughts into a Halloween thread.

Continuing on the APUSH theme here...


My teacher at Apex didn't believe in homework, quizzes, projects...anything. It was pretty much 90% off of tests, 10% for doing nothing.


We took notes daily, and he put a few people "on the hook" pretty much to answer a question daily (what we were supposed to have read, amendments, presidents/years/things they did)


I read like 10 pages of the book before the first test, and one sentence from those ten pages was word for word on the test. So, using that knowledge, I proceeded to never read the book again.


That said, I do enjoy history and English classes. I'm an anomaly as an engineering student.

I found bits of it interesting, and my teacher was pretty good. He was just a massive dick and I didn't feel like trying. And unfortunately, I'm sure my opinion of him was swayed by him being the head of the Young *insert political party here* club. And that caused him to make/me to view his lessons (as) heavily biased and not in a way conducive to painting an accurate view of history.

There are points when I stop trying in a class. For Chemistry, it was the fact that there were exceptions to "rules", and those exceptions had exceptions for themselves. For APUSH, it was the Civil War and having to know the dates, generals involved, the goal of it, and who won for most of the battles. That coupled with the fact the I really only have an interest in WWI/WW2 (really did not spend that much time on it) made it really unenjoyable.

Astronomy or Engineering takes the cake for me as far as best class is concerned.



Sorry for hijacking this Jussi Trollinen. I'm dressed up as myself.

Damn, hope that wasn't Mr. Todd. He was a phenomenal teacher when I was there, one of the ones I actually had respect for in how he taught. Not to say I didn't respect my other teachers, just that he got the most out of most of his students IMO.



PS: support your local microbrewery, I know I am tonight.


PPS: I am disappoint that this hasn't been posted yet

Nope, I never had Coach Todd at any point in my high school life. That was Coach Thomas.
