His classes, very boring. It's pretty easy to do well in his class, but if he does not like your writing style, you lose a lot of marks. If you got to talk to him about getting more marks, he does it give you the marks.

His classes are so boring that they would be better suited to helping insomnia patients than actually teaching a subject.

Very bad teacher. A course with Mr. Cade is a waste of time full of unrelated lectures and self-teaching. The way he `teaches`makes the students in his class come to hate the subject. He does not prepare the students adequately for the assessments and leaves a lot of material for the students to learn at home. Mr. Cade frequently hands out charts with the purpose for the students to summarize the textbook. Difficult marker and not suitable to be a teacher. I do not recommend his classes.

Yes, he does tend to go off tangent, but as long as you're learning, does it really matter? His stories are all related to the curriculum one way or another. :D

I have history with him. He knows most of the things he teaches but outside of that box he knows very little. When you ask him a specific question he will not answer it clearly and directly, instead he will speak for about 5-10 mins about someting else. He explains stuff not very clearly and is a hardmarker :(. He tends to have favorites but doesnt show it to the class. If you have a late assingment or you were not in class he will give you more time.

Mr. Cade is the best teacher I ever had and will have, when you have a problem he will help you and he goes out of his way to be kind to you. I hope I have him at least one more timee in the school year.

Fantastic teacher. He cares a lot about teaching and just as important, the students he teaches. He made a course I thought wouldn't be fun, actually enjoyable; I was able to learn a lot! He let me tackle a lot of controversial issues in my essays. Also IMHO, he's got excellent taste in music =).

His class was probably the most memorable in my high school career. He does care about his students and will spend extra time if necessary.

Hes a really good teacher. Makes people actually care about history. Easy tests mostly based on literacy knowledge not on historical (esasy questions). Hard marker actually a very hard marker but fair becuase if u come argue a little about marks and if ur reasons are good enough he will raise it! Hop to have a class with u again Mr. Cade!!!
