He teaches things you don't really need to know, if you're polite to him and do the work, he'll like you and you'll get a good grade. Expect LOTS of homework and projects.

solid guy, a little weird though. however, i don't like the way he marks. he expects a lot of art and "purdyness" which quite frankly isn't what social studies is about. too difficult to be a social studies course, and its go

he doesnt really teach us things, and his tests are pointless. Most of our homework is colouring maps. And he asks too much on the colours and stuff, total waste of time.

He's always trying to prove that he's tough on everyone and keeps making this point over and over. Not sure why, then he backs it up by giving you tons of pointless homework which doesn't make sense.

Carlson would be a good teacher if he actually taught something. he expects us to read his mind when it comes to reports, and his homework has no point.
