-Jeopardy

-I enjoyed the news because it got great communication and discussion flowing since day one of school and it really made a family like bond inside the classroom with the bickering and debates. I enjoyed jeopardy a lot because I love a good competition and it really did help me review for a test because even if it wasn't my row I would try and answer the question to see if I knew it. The questions I couldn't answer I knew I needed to study for.

-Jeopardy is fun.

-Jeopardy was very helpful. The videos you showed us helped a lot also, they stuck in my mind.

-The Socrates dialogueso and the activities we did in economics were very fun and I learned a lot from them.

-Use of videos and hands on activities.

-The way you taught economics with fun activities was an attention-grabber, and helped us learn. I wish there would've been more of those during the government unit.
The videos you show about countries are always worthwhile. Insight makes a difference to our understanding and our perceptions.

-Per se courts. I will never forget them.

-Personally, I enjoyed everything. I think combining mediums like lecture and media is a very engaging method and adds to the class and the material. I really appreciate that as a student. Even though they were not my favorite, I believe the debates were a good experience. I like the variations, if you will, of your lessons and your teaching.

-Per se courts and jeopardy are very helpful and fun

-Honestly everything. I liked the videos we watched.

-The constant motion through the class by having activities and keeping a good learning environment worked very well, PowerPoints and lectures were kept to a perfect timing to where it was always enjoyable

-News every day without fail, constant classroom updates, and Mr. Silva Brown always sticking to the schedule, quizzes to keep us in check, jeopardy, weekly FRQs, and test corrections

-The jeopardy was really helpful, as well as the daily power point lessons.

-Jeopardy, other games to reinforce information.

-The balance between didactic and dialectic learning/teaching styles was perfect for avoiding boredom (as much as possible), and discussing modern events and politics, while not part of the curriculum, was very important and useful for real life application of CompGov/Pol

And there you have it.
