Easy to do well if you do the work, but his classes can be hella boring! He also tends to be much too easy going at times. Really nice guy, sometimes to a fault. He never wants to disipline students.

A knowledgable, patient, and generous teacher for the grade 12 world history course, gives little homework, and fun assingments. Highly recommended for all students going into BA programs in university.

So his assignments could use a little more creativity and some of his classes will put you to sleep..other than that Shoey is the greatest! Give him a chance and you'll see that he's just a nice guy who loves teaching. I was always happy in his classes, nothing beats his jokes! "Joke of the day...I've met my quota" "My first mistake all semester." "You.are.good!" "We're making history here folks"

I don't understand why anyone would not like this teacher. History is not the most fun subject, but he puts in a solid effort to make it enjoyable. He's extremely helpful as well.

What can I say about Shoesmith? This guy is the man, really. If I had to rank all my university teachers, this guy would be up there with the best of them. His jokes are hilarious. The F word*s*... "Focus" and "Fact" and "Flow." Plus he always picks on the troublemaking kids and the ones who bother him, which improves the experience for the rest of the class. Thanks for the great times Shoesmith.

I used to love history until I was in his classes. If h dosn't like you, don't even bother, you'll get the same 3 marks over and over and over. all I can say is thank goodness I had a prof in uni who reminded me how interesting history can be.
