Mr. Dannetta is a fantastic history teacher! He his very knowledgeable about his subject and is always encouraging to students who are enthusiastic about his class. He is always open to discussion and has a good sense of humour. Mr. Dannetta has really inspired me to want to learn more about history. He also runs the History Bowl club at UTS and he is always a very enthusiastic and supportive coach. He has given us many opportunities to increase our knowledge. He is always kind to his students.

Awesome teacher. I don't why everyone is hating on him; he's fantastic. He can mark a bit harshly, but if you put in some effort, you'll find he's one of the best teachers ever! If you aren't familiar with his teaching style at first, you may do kinda bad on your presentations, but when you get it, you'll feel great.

He is one of the worst teachers I have EVER had, and that is coming from a very sketchy French school that taught me nothing about anything. He shows the most boring history movies, marks tests really unfairly, and never actually teaches anything. During his movies, he has FALLEN ASLEEP. Yes, you read that correctly, He has fallen asleep during HIS OWN HISTORY MOVIES. Also, The highest mark for a large History test was 82%, whereas the lowest mark of the other teacher was 85%

He keeps talking about random personal stuff in class, then assigns us big projects without telling us what to do. He also does not explain in assignments or in personal emails exactly what to do. He teaches us with Wikipedia, then tells us we can't use Wikipedia in our sources. He makes fun of everyone for no reason.
