I took Comp Civ thinking that it would be an easy A, but was wrong. The grade is based off of lots of little participation/in-class assignment/pop-quiz marks that make it really hard to get below a B, but not in any way easy to get an A. Take a spare instead, save yourself from his mood-swings, and random screaming at whomever he chooses as victim.

Johnston is a teacher that its hard to hate, even when he's screaming at you for something or joking at your expense. He is strict to a point but is very fair and will always take into account any difficulties you have. His style of teaching and humorous character make what could be very dull and monotonous lessons fun and interesting to attend. I always look forward to one of his rants or little life stories as they give you a short break from class and a laugh. Worldly, funny, great teacher!!!

A classic example of a teacher that pick favourites amongst students. If you are the type of teacher's pet that can charm and manipulate a teacher then he is likely to give you easy marks and the rights to break all the rules. However if he doesnt like you for whatever reason, including your political views, your hobbies etc etc, then he will pick on you for absolutely no reason and make your life miserable so you will drop his class and never see him again.

He definitely abuses his authority, by embarassing and ridiculing students in class. Tries to hard to be funny. In general, he is cranky and can be VERY VERY mean if he doesn't like you.

Irrational and Impulsive, difficult to deal with if you have a non agressive personality. Works hard, but negated by the fact that he is insensitive, and prone to make senseless jokes
