I believe that Malchiodi is a great teacher. He actually talks about stuff that matter..life. He talks a lot about aspects of life and tieing it to the books that we read in class. He pretty much, talks about what we need in life, not just regular english stuff. He jokes alot but is very strict on deadlines. He gives you a good amount of time to do the projects but he doesnt accept late work unless you have a valid excuse. Overall a great teacher. 10/10 would take his class again lml
He's a very nice and caring teacher. However, the workload is absolutely ridiculous.
His class was interesting, but his workload was unreasonable. I feel like I was in an AP English Honors class and I certainly did not sign up for this. If I knew the amount of coursework beforehand, I would have never enrolled in his class.
His workload is moderate. I just personally didn't like him. He has favorites, which I absolutely hate about teachers. He always makes fun of the "bad" students, which always discourages them. He's extremely strict with deadlines and latenesses. He gives pop quizzes which are super annoying and doesn't let latecomers do the questions they missed. His attitude is off-putting. The good thing about his class is that his talks are super engaging and will prepare you for any tests or assignments.
He tries to be a good, caring person but honestly just comes across as overbearing and annoying. Needs to lay off his ego and whole "being there for the students" persona because at times it is just completely inappropriate. You cant pressure students into revealing their secrets and personal life to him and way more often than not we DONT want to. Theres a line that teachers shouldn't cross, and although you have good intentions, seriously stop.
This is not regular english. His workload is insane and is more intensive than an AP class. His work requires 10000% precision. The workload is outrageously excessive. Your assignment will take you hours to complete. His tests are the bane of your existence. Overall, if you get into his class, just transfer to AP english so you can at least get a 1.1 curve. This class is more demanding than any other class.
He's a decent teacher. His quizzes and work are spaced out, but you can't slack if you want to do well. He teaches fine, very funny as well. I look forward to his class each day. Very good to talk to for college apps help,
one of my favorite teachers of junior year, was extremely helpful in college applications and everything else! his tests are fair to hard, comparing how much you study and understand. make sure to read books every night so you don't fail the quizzes. i love his class, one of the best in tech :)
Probably the best class I had in Tech. Very influential teacher who cares a lot about his students. Class work isn't crazy hard (he goes easy with the seniors)and for the most part, I found to be enjoyable. He goes out of his way to help with college applications and was personally a huge help to me. Class discussions were always interesting and thought provoking. He himself is very knowledgeable and worldly and has an interesting persona.
Great teacher, fun class.... had a great time you will love his class just do the readings everynight so you dont do bad on quizs!!!! that is the most important thing
Well this guy is crazy hard quizzes and etc. keep up with the work and be prepared to discuss with the class. Furthermore he can be funny at sometimes but he is very strict and overall a good teacher
Oh what I would do to have him back as a teacher. Sadly his mother became ill and he had to leave us :'(. He was very good at teaching and he went beyond teaching. Everyday in class it seemed like a different setting. He had his own style of teaching which was to help us. He really cares about students and their successes. Although he does make fun of some (not entirely offensively) because of their unwillingness to learn. Also, the quizzes almost everyday made me get an 85 :( READ THE BOOKS!
Great teacher! Im really gonna miss him next year! i learned a lot in class besdies english, like helpful things i will probably use for the rest of my life! thanks mr.malchiodi (: i owe you one !
Absolutely the best. I have literally nothing bad to report about his class. It was fun, I learned a lot about English and about life. He's a great teacher, as well as a great person. Definitely superhuman. He made the college process so easy for me, and I have no idea how he gives his kids such individual attention because... seriously? Have you been to the college office?! It's a zoo in there, but he is super friendly and organized and knowledgeable and just amazing.
Great teacher! I do not know how he jungles teaching and helping kids through the college process. HE MAKES THE FUNNIEST "offensive | playful" JOKES!
he's rly not that hard this year, it's more or less just doing what u have to, i don't neccesarily consider him a hard teacher at all and is pretty much on par with all my other teachers.
I don't know how anyone can say anything bad about Malchiodi. He is one of (if not the only) my favorite teachers. He poses a lot more thought-provoking questions than other classes I've had and I enjoyed putting in the effort to complete my assignments. (This coming from a tv/internet addict.) He's approachable and somewhat naive about people. If you're applying to college, make sure to visit his office often and to use his services!
Biased sometimes, very good at making bad jokes, but he knows what he's saying. Cool outside of class but his work is O.D.!! Smart guy, "eh" teacher. And y does he hav 2 read into EVERYTHING?
He was my brother's guidance counselor. My brother learned a lot from him, he gave my brother very helpful tips, because of Mr.Malchiodi, he's going to be a doctor in 4 years. Thank you Mr.Malchodi for enlightening my brothers future with your advice! Everything my brother learns goes to me, and if i can make my dream of being a bacteriologist, or a taxonimist, or a lawyer, all the credit will go to Mr.Malchiodi. Once again, thank you. If anyone needs help anytime, don't be scared to drop by Mr.M's office.
Wow. U would think studying wordds would be enough but nope. HArd class but if you keep up working habits youll be fine. Very complicated projects, hw, quizes everyday. The work load is amazingly hard espeacially since i had him for my whole freshman year and since hes my guidance counsler. If ur in pulse your ganna have him. SArcastic many times but can be funny.
OVERLOAD OF WORK, lots of confusing things to do, books werent the best ive read, hardest english teacher i've had, BUT I LOVED HIM he prepares you very well for college and really cares about his students. i did all my work and the projects are fun, i would go through all the work all over again. his class is never a bore you'll enjoy it.
Very cool teacher. extremely nice, like a teddy bear, :)
Keep putting money in that jar, yes no more free jokes for u
It really isn't hard to get a good grade in this class as long as you keep good work habits.
this teacher is one of the best ones in the school. very truthful, sarcastic and sometimes funny...very few times)
Mr. M... I had him last term, but I have the other honors teacher now. You have no idea how badly I'm dying to transfer into Mr. M's class. So many people complain about the workload, but just do it, and you'll be fine. It's not that hard. And TRUST ME, the discussions in his class are most definitely worth it. I miss your class, Mr. M. I feel as if I'm going to explode if I stay in my current class; seriously, my brain is racking... :-(
He once said that there are two types of teachers: challenging and hard. He is definitely the hard type due to his overload of work work work. His class requires alot of thinking. He has favorites, alot of superman belts, a patriotic uniform, a sense of humor... yea.
Overall good teacher. He does give a lot of work, which is only preparation for the future. Make sure you're up for writing essays, there are a lot of those. Pretty nice guy as well. He gives his honors classes and non-honors classes the same work. Just make sure you're ready.
Kinda mean & sarcastic. OVERLOAD of work, I did horribly on vocab tests. That Malchiodi section is too hard. Spending too much time on his class, can't concentrate on my others. Can get kinda boring. he talks a lot. Memorize how many superman belts he has
Best person in the whole school. Compared to him everyone else is boring. He made English worth while.
Loads you up with work, I hate vocabulary tests. Can be boring sometimes but is interesting and a hard working teacher. Spend my life finishing his essays.
He gives plethoras of work. The class is great though, interesting and thought-provoking. He's a cool guy too. I hope it all pays off. --J.M.
He has favorites, gives tons of work, but u don't fall asleep in his class.
he a really good counselor for pulse/gateway very nice and very helpful
he doesnt teach me anything but hes a cool guidance councelor!
AMAZING teacher. It's only been a few weeks since school's started, but I've learned so much. Thank you, Mr. M, you are a great teacher. :)
i dont like english so i dont trust nor like this guy. he gives a lot of work!!!
Very fair. Will tell you exactly like it is and won't mince his words- whether you like it or not! Great guy, cares and lovvvvvvves Superman!
i thought he was hard cuz he gave so much hard work. but u learn a lot n your writin will definitely improve
He can be nice at times, but is kind of stuck up and haughty, at least to me he was. Thinks his honors class is a big deal and its something special but its not.
He's the closest you'll ever come to a teacher that cares. Tought, fare, and the best teacher I ever had. Thanks for everthing Mr. M.
LOVE HIM!!!! He actually teaches, doesn't just give readings and tests. The only problem is that he gives a lotta work but just do it and you'll be fine.
haha, oh mr malchiodi, wannabe superman.. great sense of humor :D
nice guy..but has a yes-no roboti-like personality..has favorites..does not teach much of the philosophical side of texts..leaves work to students...
Great Guidance Guy, Superman going through a "child-hood phase" Great Guy!!!
a bit hard at times and stressfull but still a good teacher and makes good discussions...u wun fall asleep
funny guy. knows what he's talking about and makes it interesting. somewhat tough projects, but creative.
he is like the koolest teacher i had except for all my other ones
he cares for his students..and he teaches well..and comes out wit da only jokes...i like him..hes good teacher
...a little less harshness and work may make his class actually enjoyable...
malch is cool as ever. He offers a challenging curriculum,though. he encourages growth within students. Rash humor, but the world needs more of that! HORiZons!
His class may be a bit hard but his personality makes up for it. May be one of the nicest, genuinely caring teachers in Tech.
One of the best teachers I ever had and soooo easy to talk to. keep it up mr. malchiodi. class of 2000
Dedicated and cares about his students... not afriad to joke with his kids.
my first class freshman year. he had me confused with this other kid for about 2 marking periods. he hated both of us so it didnt matter
freshman year english!!! cool as all!!! made me look forward to class...
