If you ever get bored (and you will..) count how many times he says "ahhh" when he is talking. I had over 100 in other day and was LMAO for whole class.

I did NOT enjoy his class, the summative was fun but thats the only good thing I can say about the course work. He might know his stuff but your whole mark will be based off of 7 or 8 fill in the blank tests, 20 questions it.... and nothing else. He controls the stuff you know, by dictating notes and then picks 20 questions from maybe ten pages of notes. Good if you don't want alot of course work but I would have rather had an essay

Mr.Thom, was the greatest teacher I ever had during my time at Earl Haig. He shared his passion for history with the class and made most of us love it as much as he does

through his lecture-like classes, you'll learn note taking skills and the abiility to sit through most of your other boring classes. That said, he's the kind of teacher that you will develop tremendous amount of respect for.

i don't understand his ratings on this site. he is so unbelievably monotone and puts me to sleep every single class. his test are impossible fill in the blank style and it shows when a third of the class failed it. i also find it inconsiderate that everyone's marks are read out to the class. it should be a personal decision whether one would like to share. i pray things improve.
