I came into my grade 10 "Ancient Civ" class in 1998 and filled out Mr. Adams' questionnaire; my response to "What is your least favourite subject in school" was History. Mr. Adams turned it into my favourite, and I made sure I took every class he taught at Peterborough Collegiate through to OAC Modern Western Civilizations. Mr. Adams made sure even the driest moments in history were entertaining and memorable with his humour, knowledge and discourse. I miss his classes, eleven years on.

Mr. Adams was a fabulous grade 10 history teacher. He took a very dull subject for me and made it very interesting. He always pushed me to be better and actually do proper research. I can thank his willingness and hope in me for where I am today in my senior year.

The only teacher who actually prepared me for university. I learned more in that class than in every other class I took.

Mr. Adams is very entertaining as far as classroom participation goes and generally makes things interesting. He doesn't like marking assignments but has insanely long tests. overall, great!

he should dress up like a bunny more often, it somehow suits him... he was a good history teacher though, but i didn't really like the essay.

He is definitely a mean guy, but he's only mean towards people with attitude. When it comes to teaching, he does it well. You can always have a little fun in his class

His lectures that "prepare" us for University were nothing like what I acutally experienced. Put some flare into it.

I loved the course material but I'm not a fan of his teaching style. I understand the lectures were just preparing us for university, but he needs some flare!

He's a good teacher, but tends to think the worst of students before he has a reason to.

Don't: bother having an opinion; expect him to expand on what he teaches. Rigid.
