This is one of the best classes to take when you want a free 4.5 for honors or 5.4 for AP classes. This is the easiest class to cheat because all he does is stare at that computer screen. I've seen students use their phones during tests and quizzes and let other students correct their own quizzes so they can give free 100s to their friends. No one seems to have motivation in his class due to his lack of commitment to teach his students. He now skips more school days than any seniors.
He is a very nice teacher and understanding but doesnt teach. He just makes students in psych do "outlines" which is to just copy everything in the textbook ......which helps retain nothing. He doesnt teach to prep for the AP exam and his tests are hard and dont correlate with his lectures (most of his lectures are off topic and personal). He is a great person but not a good teacher and unorganized.
He's a great guy. He's very open and easy to work with. His class was a joy to be in. If you want the full Scanlan experience take Philosophy, he's way more passionate about it. I took Psych, and he's definitely a bit more reserved with the subject (but still very knowledgeable/interesting). Some cons- He can be sporadic w/ quizzes/tests and can assign them randomly. His work takes a while (but you can pass them in late so w/e.) Despite these flaws, his class was a joy. Super chill dude.
the only teacher I've ever had that didn't make me dread coming to school, the school day is a waste when I don't have his class. one of the coolest people I've ever had the privilege of meeting, made me love philosophy....very enlightened and kindhearted guy. you're lucky if you ever get the chance to be in his class. funny, talented, easy to talk to and makes a very difficult subject quite easy to understand and comprehend. probably the only part of nqhs I'll miss is this dude
Greatest soul of NQ. The only class you will never dread, not that its hard to not go. Much appreciation goes to this man.
Scanlan was the best teacher that I have EVER had. I was his intern and hanging out with him was such a blast. He is one of the most chill people ever and I will always recommend his philosophy course
I'm from the Class of 2004, and am currently attending BU. The classes that I took with Scanlon are the only ones that have really made college really easy.
Scanman + Brums = Dynamic Couple. Combined they can do anything
very good teacher, and he knows alot about philosophy and history
Mr. Scanlan`s real nice and all but his classes are WAY TOO DIFFICULT. His work is extremely hard and his teaching is very hard to understand. I`m always nervous when I`m in his
i LIke his class, he would not like me eat my twin so not to waste it: he ate it himself.. are very cool teacher,but he can't remember their names
I like Mr. Scanlan, today was my last day of Finals which happened to be in his class, he's cool. you got a problem with scanlan you got a problem with me
He was one of the best teachers Ive ever had helped me so much....ask about the Eagle story
Caught me sneaking out of a rally and didn't tell on me ;) Only had him two terms, had student teachers other two but liked the two I had with him.
this guy is good, his unique appraoch to teaching really helps.
I had Scanlan my junior year. I loved the teaching through role playing. It was really effective for me.
Native American "Spirit Quests", interesting "stories", and GLLLAAADDIIIAATTOORRR. Yet, he still manages to teach a good class.
Inspiring, if anything. Probably the only history teacher who cares about GRAMMAR. He really likes to talk and lecture. A real enlightened guy.
He's cool overall, but a little conceited & arrogant. Great speaker, but thinks he knows everything. Class is pretty easy & relaxed.
Pretty nice guy. A little confused sometimes and definitely a little arrogant. He couldn't really focus on teaching in my class.
Mr. Scanlan knows what he teaches and also takes it to the next level.
one of the most influencial teachers i ever had, helped me out beyond schoolwork... all around amazing person.
I LOVE MR. SCANLAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BY FAR THE BEST TEACHER ALIVE!! SO NICE
He's okay, but he can be a little arrogant at times. Assigns lots of projects.
Scanlan's the coolest. I loved his class and you can talk to him about anything
he was okay. too many papers, not so clear to my class
Mr. Scanlan is BY FAR the BEST teacher ever! He taught me so much!
i leaned the most from that class even though i failed his class
He is so nice! How can you not like him? One of the best ever!
my inspiration and motivation; doesn't get better than scanlan
