Always Do the Reading
Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The teacher is extremely educated and knows how to teach students. Do not let his appearance deter you from learning in his class. He knows what he is doing. I got a 5 on the AP exam I took in his class. If you put in the work by taking notes (I wrote in class w/o organization then retyped them on my laptop with organization and additional notes from the book), listening to his lectures, and do the assignments/reading you will be good to go. One of my top teachers in high school.
I learned a lot more than I expected about US history. Although he is very serious about teaching, him teaching it through stories helped a lot. It is a real college experience. I cannot remember anything I learned in that class since it a few months ago, but I still have my 100 some notes from that class if I ever have to take US history again!

Advice for students:
Do not avoid the reading! As good of a teacher as he is, you have to put in the work outside of class or you will not pass his class or the AP exam. If you are not going to put in the effort outside of class drop it immediately. Your GPA does not deserve it and neither does he if you are not going to respect his class.
