Great teacher overall, nice guy. really funny
The first few months of his class were extremely difficult, his FRQ's and tests mostly. But overall, Mr. Wool practically hands you everything you need to study and prepare for them. The note-taking was helpful, and he would go over anything you didn't understand. He had study sessions for the weeks before the AP Test and gave review packets left and right. His tests were so hard, that by the time the AP Test hit, it was a breeze. He wasn't a bad teacher, just a 'little' opinion-biased.
Mr.Wool is genuinely a good person. You can definitely tell that he loves what he does, es very passionate about teaching and government. Hes always kind to his students and I think he tries to be as helpful as possible. However, he is the hardest teacher I've ever had. AP Gov is the only class I've ever gotten a D in, and it was honestly heart breaking. I, and everyone in his class, tried so hard to do well. Its an *extremely* difficult course. Very interesting, but so so hard for a sophomore.
Oh my god, he's so biased it's crazy. He picks a few favorites and makes them the center of his being. He's also a very very far right Republican and although he says he tries to teach unbiased, that is the biggest lie I've ever heard. He shoves his ideology down everyones throats. His class is hard as hell, and you get and he grades as if you were actually a college student. That being said the course is not super dull. Depends who you have in class and whether he likes your class.
He is the hardest teacher I have ever had. He is very biased and his tests are graded to where you will only receive credit if your answer specifically matches up with what he is looking for. He talks more in class about news articles, rather than the subject matter that we were tested on.
Although the subject matter was interesting, it was frightfully dull coming out of his mouth. He is very opinionated and chooses favorites early on, and his tests are extremely confusing. Overall, a rigorous class with no real benefit.
Mr. Wool. Good - He knows his history very well and his lectures are easy to understand. Bad - His political views are on the far right and he attempts to impose them upon his students.
Mr. Wool is the man
A very good, but strict teacher. I had him for AP, so I was seen as a good "angel". He makes it seem like college, but it is actually not that bad.
Republicans Democrats Wool Witry
he makes it feel like your in college with the take notes off his lectures and what not and know it all for the test
He was probably the hardest teacher I ever had in high school. Hes really passionate about what he teaches and hes a tough grader. I hear hes a gift to have for AP but if you just have him for regular old government like I did then you're doing alot more hard work for the class than you would for the other government teachers.
Mr. Wool is a great teacher- he puts forth a good effort to educate- students actually leave class having learned something. He's a great teacher, and anyone's lucky to have a class with him.
Mr.Wool...your class was bland. Not everyone can learn well from lectures! Many students agree with me when I say that your class is the worst AP out there. Switch to politics!
I am a Junior in College and Mr. Wool was definitely my favorite. He is tough, but he knows his stuff and willing to help
His government class was pretty easy. He'd mostly just give us notes and then quiz us on them. The best days were when we had debates. Those were always fun and interesting. He wasn't cool because he didn't allow calc games, and he's 200% republican.
I actually started to like history after his AP class. It was a little tough at times, but all the hard work paid off in the end.
Mr. Wool is a great teacher. He keeps me entertained and I always have fun in his class. I wish all my teachers were like him. My favorite teacher by far.
I had Mr. Wool for US History and Government, he has such a passion for teaching and I've learned so much. One of the best teachers at Andrew by far
Mr. Wool's AP US History is definately a tough class, but he's made me appreciate our history. I wish I had more teacher's as inspired and energetic as him.
If ALL teachers were as demanding, inspirational, creative and intelligent as this man, teachers would NEVER be blamed for the failure of the school system.
Really cool teacher, but pretty tough. Oh yeah, and he knows his stuff!!!!
awesome teacher!!!! he made everything super fun...but if you werent big on public speaking, it made his class a whole lot harder
