I have a science teacher who told us only to write down what he told us to when we were taking notes, then later yelled at us for not taking enough notes. Oh yeah, and one time he showed us a slo mo video of popcorn popping and asked us, based off of that video, what we knew about reverse osmosis. Now that I think about it I could probobly write a book about all of the things he did to qualify as a sucky teacher. You know what, screw my science teacher why the heck was he hired. What about you? Any annoying teacher stories?

Oh, sure, I've got tons of stories. Had a teacher who gave a kid a zero on an assignment because it had to do with Christmas, and he was Jehovah's Witness, so he didn't celebrate it. Another teacher who showed us the evils of big business and told us that the Soviet Union was an Axis power instead of preparing us for our AP test.
 
Sometimes teachers aren't good at their jobs. When that's the case, then the burden unfortunately falls on you to teach yourself, especially if it's for a class like AP. Science specifically? Read your textbook. Get an AP review book. If your teacher can't do their job right, then you have to prepare yourself. It sucks, but... that's life.

I had a teacher who was counting down until retirement and basically let us do what we wanted. Now I need that cirriculum that I was never taught.

I learned nothing in math last year, because the teacher couldn't keep a handle on the class. She never explained anything, just gave us worksheets and had us do them in groups. Of course, I always got put with the people who didn't care.
