He doesn't teach my class anything. Either you ask him personally, or he gives each person or little group a mini lesson, once they're done some work. He also speaks french like someone whose just started. he's a really nice guy, but not very helpful. Its easy to get an A if you do the work in his class. because he gives out like 1-3 worksheets per class

I love Mr. Howe! I wish he could be my French teacher for grade 12. He's so chilled and it's pretty easy to get high marks in his class. Mr. Howe for the win!

the thing about howe is, he doesn't teach. he gives you papers to fill out. i learned nothing from him but at least he let us do whatever he wanted during his class.

Good teacher, funny at times. Although he tends to appear tough, if you pay attention and honestly cannot understand the material after trying he will help. If I didn't find physics rather... well, boring, I would probably would have enjoyed this class alot more.

Easiest teacher ever, hands down. I didn't learn a thing and got almost 95%. He just gives you handouts, barely any lessons. When you hand something in he asks you to write your "mark down" and you can write perfect and you'll get 100% on the project.
