He makes you work. Slackers pay the price.
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?
Very dedicated teacher.
Very good teacher
Great teacher.Very knowledgeable . Explains more difficult concepts very well. Rock on,
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
His tests may seem tough but he prepares you well for them.
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.
Two biology classes 2 teachers diversity unit Crawford's test = 7 pages not including MC Other class diversity AND plants unit test combined = 2 pages not including MC You'll like him if ur those school "loving" students or w.e
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.
Such a nice man! But terrible teacher. He was really unclear with his directions and expectations with regards to ANY assignment! WAY TOO QUIET - I suffered more 'cause I sat at the back. Hard tests
If you give him a chance, hes not that bad of a teacher. He is very straight forward, no tricks, no nothing, do the assignments and listen in class. Thats all you need to do to do well. He covers everything in class in great detail. He knows his stuff. Mad respect for the guy
He doesn't explain anything and he's so quiet you can't hear anything he says :$
Nice and all, but very strict and it is hard to understand. He teaches at a fast rate and it is hard to keep up. He treats us like older students. Just slow down and try to be more considerate with the tests please :P
Crawford is an excellent teacher, very knowledgeable and explains everything. Very cool guy. Knows his stufff.
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!
he is sooo shy, so he ends up speaking really quietly, but hes really knowledgeable and really good at explaining the concpets
Mr.Crawford he's nice and all but he was a bad explainer. Also he was one of the hardest marker that i have seen. I had him in grade 10 and my classmate said that he marked harder then mercier. He was
He wont speak loud enough for everyone to hear. So you dont learn anything and all the while your falling asleep. Then he expects you to know everything when its test time.
As nice as he was, he has got to be the most boring teacher ever. He has a monotone voice which makes it hard to understand, and he is a pretty hard marker. He's really intelligent, but needs to get b
O GOSH! Crawford... I hated his class. I slept in it everyday b/c he was so monotonus. DX And he ruined my culturefest routine!
I dont really like him. HE doesnt explain very clear and he speaks very monotone. SIT NEAT THE FRONT
hes sooo borrringgggg he talks like a robot i end up laughing at him..because he says potato funny :) and i dont think he likes me too much because i talk so much in his class :p
Mr. Crawford is totally awesome..so hip!!! The guy totalllllly knows his stuff...keep on truckin!
he doesn't make class interesting so its boring. But he is very nice and he teaches well and goes over things in detail. he takes up hmwk all the time and just make sure you pay attention and you should do okay
he knws wut he's talkin aboot but he needs to make it more interestin. mayb be more enthousiastic about it his work isnt hard as long as u pay attention and try to stay focused
he isn't a real good teacher ..... and he doesn't help too much
a good teacher if you're an auditory learner, but if you're a more hands on person like me, not the best teacher in the world. Helpful yet needs to be more clear
His lectures get boring but they are extremely beneficial.
hm i must say he is very quiet but i did do pretty well at the begining of the semester for his class,he docks marks easily,doesnt prepare you for test,and doesnt tech to the greatest ability. I also find he goes off topic ALOT when u ask a questions
He's a kind teacher that totally knows his stuff just can't speak loud enough, he's kind and docks off marks has no sense of humour but...i actually understand what he says overall he's pretty good
Not necessarily the best teacher...for those who actually want to pass....
well what do i sayy,,, boresome spent many classes with my eyes closed unconcious..umm i had to teach miself sometimes thru lackness of clarity. got a 59 had an 82 in science the year prior.
Nota good teacher not only does he not care about failing students he makes everything extra challenging to make sure not many students get very good marks. His quizes are like tests and his tests are like exams i wonder what his exam will be like.
Lacks humanity, but that's not the point: good teaching system, if not style and clarity. Lesson, notes, textbook, questions, worksheet, test. Repeat. A lot of people like this.(Fell asleep in class but that was just my own boredom...).
yo guyz BEWARE OF HIM!! i got like 92 last yr in science and now....getting 25 in bio *sniff sniff*lol...hes 2 UNcool ....and slow..I cheat like on every single test in his class *cough cough* lol .....but hes kind (i admit )
So boring, good at science but had no idea how to teach
He's quiet and doesn't have a strong presence. But he's quite smart and knows his material. He's not a great teacher if you have ADD, but otherwise, he's good
I'm glad he was my teacher--he's incredible, and kind
Quiet and scary, he has good lectures but they can be confusing at times
I had him for grade 9 science back in '91. Great teacher, very helpful.
