Passey is a great teacher. I always got along well with him in Aus Studies way back when and he made me pretty enthuisastic about the subject.
Well it seems Passey is not a popular man, Im agreeing with this, I’ve had him 4 the past 3 semesters, and I tell ya, its hard work, u hand up 12 essay's on 1 day, given 2 u 24 hours before hand, and in those 12 essay's if you miss 1 bit of anything, its a big C. he emails a schedule at the start of term, I had 34 in my inbox by the end, coz he changed it that many times, also he doesn’t let us check emails in class, but he always sends us emails during class changing the next lesson, bit hypocritical
Mr Passey is a really excellent teacher, he explains things properly and never favours any student. He always gives advice when you ask for it, however he gives you alot of assignments which need completeing by the due date.
He has his favourites, and will always down grade the students he doesn't like or get along with. He is a very lazy teahcer, and doesn't explain things. He says it's to help people learn independantly, but he often doesn't know what he's talking about, or what he expects from the students. He is unreasonable at times, but once you get on his bad side, he is extremely unhelpful. I would recommend changing out of his class if you get him as a teacher.
