Undoubtfully the hardest teacher in the science department. Tough tests. Doesn't give a damn about anyone. He's a very knowledgable man but not the best teacher. This was basically a self- taught course for me as it was really hard to keep up with how fast he goes. NO, it's not impossible to get a high mark, but defenetly not easy at all.
I got reorganized from Mr. Crawford's class this year and I totally regret coming out of his class. Yes, his tests and quizzes were very hard but if you pay attention to every single word he says in class, you can ace it. I respect him so much. He is so knowledgeable and I really wish he was my teacher again.
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.
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
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.
Mostly unclear when teaching, tests are harder than other classes and marking is very tight.
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
He is very hard. Very quiet. Is not a very good teacher. Really hard to get marks especially in grade 12.
I should actually thank him because he allowed me to get the recommended number of hours of sleep.
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!
Crawford is so cool! He just rocks :) I love you Mr. Crawford!!
I dont really like him. HE doesnt explain very clear and he speaks very monotone. SIT NEAT THE FRONT
he's too boring and dosen't really give u high marks. i know someone that got 48 and just needed 2% to pass to get the credit, plus he even told crawford that he wasn't going to pursue this course anymore but crawford didn't care. the kid failed.
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
He's a really nice guy if you actually give him a shot and talk to him. He sticks to his Bio txtbook like glue, if you read that you've got the course down. Ask him about his pirate life! And his Tornado survival story! And his Bear hunter job!
Mr. Crawford is totally awesome..so hip!!! The guy totalllllly knows his stuff...keep on truckin!
This teacher is so freaking timid I swear he was afraid of me plus hes way to quiet and boring, I fell asleep in his class at least 6 times.
THIS TEACHER SUCKSSSS HE DOESNT EXPLAIN NETHING U CANT HEAR HIMMM AND HE CAN TEACH NETHING.... like wif the pig disection he didnt explain that properly... HE SUCKSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
omgg..hez soo borin, his quizes r like tests and his tests were harder than the exam..nd thatz cuz a different teacher made da exam, overall AWFUL(N)
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
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
he's a kind teacher but boring. i didn't do well in his class just cause i fell asleep in class and couldn't understand him. i nearly failed science and i had an 80 the year before. i went into the exam with a 59 but last-minute studying got me a 65.
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
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...).
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.
