I had Ed Beck for AP world and lets just say he is a very interesting man. Very nice and funny, but can sometimes blatantly blurt out offensive remarks, play random songs just because he thinks they connect to the lesson and literally everything he says could be a meme. I stopped trying in the class around the 2nd quarter when i realized it was a joke. Rest of the year I devoted class to messing with him. It was pretty worth it as the class was my fave. I still passed the AP test so don't fret.

I had Mr beck for ap world and the guy is hilarious and the nicest person you'll ever meet but you won't learn anything. don't stress about the ap test because you won't know anything but you'll most likely still pass. I learned more about the history of the Beatles and Ed beck than I did about the world

Ed Beck is as off topic as they come. For a long time students were able to cheat on his tests because he used the tests that came with textbooks instead of creating his own,however upon switching to teaching AP World History, students can find themselves ABSOLUTELY DOOMED. He is really nice though.

Ed Beck is an unusual fellow. He stares at the wall and say "uh" or "um" every other sentence. Makes outrageous claims as if he invented the question mark. Not sure if he talks to the class or himself. Often has trouble grasping basic concepts. Not sure if he is the teacher or we are. Other than that though, he is a solid teacher.

My sister has him for AP World History. All he talks about is his personal life and then gives pointless worksheets. He expects them to learn everything from the book and does not believe in standing up in front of the class and teaching. He is the worst teacher at MHS!

Oh Mr. Beck. He definitely knows his history and loves music, but it doesn't translate in his class. He's pretty clear about his expectations and getting a good grade in his class is pretty easy. The key to this class is to not take anything he says or does too seriously.

He is funny and has good taste in music but other than that, his class is terrible. He often makes jokes about John Kasich and any other Republican. Ridicules students opinions if they don't agree with him. Explicitly expresses communist/socialist beliefs. Most of what we do in class is not relevant to what we are covering or what is on the test. Oblivious to the fact that over half his students have copies of his test and cheat regularly. Overall, his class is a joke and you don't learn.

Mr. Beck what to say about Mr.Beck? I didn't learn much other than how to make dinner and listened to Yoko Ono. Played games every week that everyone cheated on. I will never forget his class.

Sometimes tells the class what other kids are getting and makes us listen to music that "involves" history some how. I fail to understand how listening to Yoko Ono is gonna make me smarter in history.
