Be prepared to work hard in this class, and CONSISTENTLY participate. If you do that, I can guarantee you'll exit with at least an IB level 6-7. READ the notes AHEAD OF CLASS, and if you answer correctly, he'll smile softly at you and MAKE YOUR DAY. omg my heart<3
Oh, and definitely sit in the front - smack dab in the middle, if you can - it's totally worth it. He'll crack inside jokes with you, and has the driest sense of humor - and did I mention, is just about the CUTEST, SWEETEST man ever.

He's a genuinely nice person but...not a good teacher. I missed a few days of class due to a cold and missed so much and genuinely tried catching up and asked him for help but he didn't really try helping me out atm. He's a tough teacher with marking to add to it. I'm a straight A student and yet I'm genuinely worried that I'm going to fail his class. What is up with Turner's science department?

amazing teacher if youre a student willing to learn, he doesnt fool around with teaching hes extremely serious and gets the stuff done, teaches very well, extremely knowledgable, very helpful, students who dont like him just dont try in his class and dont appreciate the work he puts into teaching his students, sit at the front, listen well, write down everything he says, try your best and you'll do great because hes a fair teacher

after nearly spending 5 months in this teachers classroom iv come to realize how big of a fool and lack of knowledge persists during his teaching.his career has clearly been chosen by an activity of pulling a name out of a hat.He lacks the skills required to teach a class...especially a high school class.He obviously cannot prepare a class for the future or teach a class with his quiet voice.and lacks teaching skills required

Although he is very quiet, he is the most knowledgeable teachers I have ever met! No matter what question you ask, he will always give an in depth and clear answer. He does love cracking jokes every so often, and has an extremely dry sense of humor. He is one of the hardest markers I have seen, with high standards, and extremely difficult exams, which help prepare you for university very well. I would definitely recommend him, as long as you keep up in his class. Slackers get punished hard.

Although, yes he is hard to hear, I have to say that he was one of my favourite teachers. He's really sweet if you actually talk to him, and he has profound knowledge in the content, especially birds. Sit at the front, pay close attention, and for the love of god do not be rude to this man, he deserves way more than that.

He's a nice guy, willing to help. But, he was really really quiet, and made his tests/exams really hard. On top of that, he also marked hard. Anyone going into his class...sit in the front and enjoy his bitter sarcasm.

Crawford expects more from his students than any teacher I've had, which is why I like him. His teaching tactics are rather boring and would make a better Uni Professor but I guess that prepares you. He doesn't just teach you the basics, he goes in depth and I actually LEARNED in his class. His tests and exams usually have content he didn't cover but he is helpful and make sure you participate in his class, he'll bump your mark then.

He is such a boring teacher :| At the beginning of his class, you will find it very hard to concentrate on what he is saying because he's very quiet and hard to follow along with. He also gets off topic alot. But if you do you homework and try reaaaaally hard to focus, theres hope for you. lol good luck!
