This man is an total tard. I had some knowledge of econ before I entered his class and now, after 5 months of sitting through his down-syndrome "lectures", I'm going into college with the econ knowledge of a dead seal. He gives too much work, which he clearly can't understand, possibly because they never learned anything harder than the times-tables at his alma mater, SUNY ONEONTA, and his tests are the paper version of a Lil Yachty song they ****ing suck and you can't understand ****.
People think Mr.W doesn't teach, but he does. His tangents simply make class more engaging, and they're not really tangents because they still end up relating to the topic we are discussing. He really is a nice guy and his test can be hard. I learned a lot in his class. I had him for Econ last year and I honestly did learn a lot. We even watched some helpful films. How can you not like this guy?
He is not a bad guy. I found him to be very nice. We didn't actually learn much since the class discussions went off into tangents very easily. If you wanted to learn you probably won't like his class much, but it's not difficult to get a bad grade, since you have to participate occasionally.
He's a terribly close minded teacher who gets into arguments with students who disagree with him. He'll spend the whole period going off topic and you learn nothing in his class. His test are based solely off the textbook which he doesn't even go over. He thinks he's a great teacher, but he doesn't even teach. You have to be one of his favorites (just participate obnoxiously and agree with all the bs he spews) if you want a good grade. Worst teacher I've ever had, transfer if possible.
I've literally learned nothing this semester. We do nothing in class and he always talks about random things. He's the type of teacher to show the class a documentary and do his own thing at his desk, occasionally walking around waking kids up. His hws are to make outlines out of textbook chapters, which is irritating because we learned/talked about none of it in class. He also heavily plays favorites and your grade can be heavily affected by it. 11/10 needs to be fired, but can't b/c of tenure.
Worst teacher I ever had at Stuy.. Has made we uncomfortable several times with his comments about how sexism and racism dont matter. Has no regard for seniors during the college process or AP season, giving excess work then. he expects us to learn on our own and then tests us stuff he probably doesnt know. so many useless group projects. plays favorites and is obvious about it. overall hes a gross human being, shouldnt be a teacher at all.
Guy is pretty stupid Gave me lower than my test average. Checks hw randomly and doesn't teach at all. Plays favorites a lot and is a terrible person. If you want a good grade you have to self study a lot.
He is the very definition of why tenure should not exist.
His class is discussion based, his econ tests literally straight out of the book word for word. If you are getting under a 85 in his class you are doing something wrong. He's a nice and funny guy and to be quite frank I didn't learn as much econ as I would have liked.
The funny thing is no matter how bad he is or how much he screws your grade for no reason, he can't get fired. He has tenure and abuses the living daylight out of it
He doesn't teach from the textbook; he expects your homework of outlining to teach you about what the topic covers. He talks about current events, shows lots of documentaries, and sometimes goes on tangents. He is an acquired taste. You will either like/tolerate him or really dislike him. Don't be a troublemaker or he'll be really tough with you. Participate a lot; he likes that. It's an easy way to become one of his favorites. :)
Doesn't even try to teach, but free grade if you do your homework. Waste of a semester with him.
Fun person, teaches very little in class, but hey, its history. DO THE OUTLINES. Do them well, but make them succinct. Make sure you PARTICIPATE. If you have him later in the day, be sure to ask a fri
Mr Wisotsky is so approachable. Hes not as much of a pushover as everyone wants to think he is, so put effort in your work. Super nice, very understanding, and his class always makes me feel comfortab
fun teacher, we get off-topic sometimes though but definitely makes history more interesting
off-topic: I like how inconsistent the reviews are
Do the outlines and you'll do fine on the tests and regents. If you plan on taking the AP he is not the right teacher. He taught no history but had very entertaining discussions
Average teacher, still learning his job. Does nothing special to get himself distinguished. Has a hard time making the learning environment interactive. Hands out documents without giving background.
everyone goes into his class thinking it's a complete waste of time but there's actually some good discussion that goes on. he should supplement his lessons with more bg info/examples/viewpoints etc.
Does not teach much (deviates from class-related topics). Coursework of various classes are not up to par. Grading is somewhat whimsical. Forgetful.
I loveee loveee loveee mr. wisotsky. he's the best ever
reminding you people if you get this guy if you want to get into a good college. This class is going to be nonsense all day. either transfer out or stick with this guy. he doesnt teach at all.
This dude rocks. Yes, there are a lot of diversions and tangents, but if you do the readings he assigns you're set. Very chill guy, i'd definitely hang with him outside of class.
We started "learning" at the end of the term. Good only if you care about random topics, divergence, and a lot of sitting around.
hear him go on long informative rants and do nothing the entire term
This guy is so [email protected] about his requirements.
