A rlly great teacher! very helpful
knows a lot abt history
He is the best teacher ever!! He is very clear and his slideshows are the best. I would recommend him for grade nine because he gives no tests. But all in all he is my favorite socials teacher ever!
Basically the most unpleasant teacher ever. Super scary when he is in a bad mood. He's interesting when he talks so discussions are great. However, we watched videos everyday which was SUPER BORING. At least we got time to sleep. Basically had no tests and just had worksheets. Didn't learn a thing. Recommended if you want easy marks, but not recommended if you actually have a passion for History.
He's a super nice teacher who just makes you work a lot so u can succeed.
If you actually try in his class, you succeed. If you don't, you don't succeed. Honestly I think he was a really fair teacher because only those who tried and cared about the class were getting As. Not like a teacher who gives an A to every other student because then it just is not fair for the really hard working ones.
Don't study for this class lol. Well,, you can't. You'll fail anyways. His tests consist of stuff you've never learnt . If you have him switch out. He has. Favourites and only helps those students
He not relate to us anything, was rude and disrespectful of many of the students, class averages low no understand why everyone did lot of work.
Great Teacher! Really inspired me a lot in history! Really interesting teacher!
Great teacher that teaches both side of history. showed saving private ryan in class with the swearing. and i think there is a rifle in the back if his file cabinet. cool teacher at any rate
i think i did well bc i study but sometimes i didn't and he knew and he would say study and i would and i did well.
houch dog.. he gives you the answers to the test a week prior to it, anyone who complains about the class being hard is a little slow..
I hate him I had him for socials 11. he uses videos to teach for him he often leaves the class for 40 min. his tests are WAY too long, and difficult. Not 1 person in my class got an A. I'm smart, too.
I only had him for a day but one of the first things he said was that Canadian history was boring! I was soo offended! Way to set the tone for the rest of the year! But i didn't really get to know him
ib teachers put him to shame, he is unoriginal and teaches basics, uses videos to teach for him and doesn't properly prepare you for anything, no discussion on ideas only dates.
if you want to watch videos and look at notes on the overhead from 20 years ago, you should take this class. uses same tests every year, ask around to find all the answers for them
all he does is put videos in.. lets us use cheat sheets on tests.. i'm learning nothing! If you have him next semester change your block so you actually learn
this is my first time with him for a teacher but this guy is def cool
Houchen's class is easy, pay attention and do assignments and you will do well. The lecture/note sessions are pretty boring, but double block crosswords rock.
Overall good teacher. Easy to pass, since I was constantly slacking off and still got a high B and got recommended. Threats at the start of the year is a no no.
Obvioulsy cares for his students- will stay for hours helping if you need it- Great guy
Very easy teacher, i had him for gr.10 and he gave us the test a week or so before the test and we could find and memorize the answers, but he favours athletes.
So clear and sooo helpful, Will stay hours after school to help. he aint easy, but you will really benefit from his class. Had him every year, he is awsome.
