Best teacher I have Ever had. His classes are never boring, grading isn't tough, and there's not too much hw either despite it being an AP class. Preps you well for the exam...too bad he's leaving :(
Haha Mr. McCarthy is so cool for Euro. He's HILARIOUS and I'm learning a lot. At first I thought he was really really strange with all his idiosyncracies...but then I got used to him and now I'm really enjoying his class. It's pretty hard but we don't have too much work.
BEST HUM EVER. Very entertaining, lovely stories (SOUTHERN COMFORT), great lectures, and you learn SO MUCH!! Moves at a slow pace compared to other HUMs, but I guess you learn more. Quizzes/tests/timed writings are easy IMO, but that's just me. Excellent sponsor of MUN. Too bad he's leaving next year... =\ Sorry, class of 2009++, you have to miss him!
big mac loves aristotle , plato , and mccarthy yet is convinced the latter makes more sense
BEST TEACHER EVER. Teaches you to write a research paper. McRich is a great team. LOVE LOVE LOVE MR MCCARTHY. Funniest man ever.
There are no words for how much I love Mr. McCarthy. His AP Euro class made me re-examine my position on everything and made me better informed because of the classroom discussions. I don't think that his class was about facts so much as about forming opinions based on facts. Either way, I learned a ton and now plan to major in history in college and become a teacher. I'm not sure if he prepared us a lot for the AP, but I anticipate a 5! He's also great to talk to, and read the books he recs!
Before coming to TJ I hated history but McCarthy really made it come alive for me. I had him for HUM soph yr and i took euro my jr yr. His class is a lot of work but not too hard to get an A in it if you do a good job on the work. He gives you extra credit on stuff he thinks you did well on too : )
He's a fun teacher and you learn the material very well. Most of the time he thinks like a student. His discussions are fun and the integration with Mr. R is excellent. He likes picking on people, but in the way that a good friend would, not like a mean person would.
i adore mr. mccarthy... its a hard class but it is well worth taking. class discussions are awesome! anyone who loves history should definetly take this class
too much of himslf not 2 much contnt here..richardson has it down bro
too opinionated and sarcastic to a fault , but some days he makes sense tho
Mr. McCarthy is a great teacher. You not only learn the material in his class but form an opinion on the topic. His HUM isn't an easy A but the work is worth it
AP Euro was quite simply the best class I have ever taken. Mr. McCarthy is a fantastic teacher and a great guy. If you have a chance, get him.
Nice APEuro class, esp. if you like discussion. Helps with writing and is an approachable, laid-back guy. You better work on your essays though!
Great teacher, great guy, and a great class (AP Euro). If you have a chance, take the class. Most useful class I've taken at TJ in 4 years.
Tests are easy enough if you study. I love watching the birthday dances, and I wouldn't mind seeing him on the next American Idol, either, heh.
Didn't agree with his grading in AP Gov much, but did well on the exam and classes were interesting
Best TJ teacher for sure: He has the best hum, coolest elective, and largest club (MUN) at the school! McC is the man!
He's whacked the most people in our class... and his birthday dance is wonderful. :D GREAT person, fun teacher.
AWESOME TEACHER. He really knows how to keep his students awake. Ask him to sing and do the birthday dance. McCarthy/Richardson is definitely the best HUM.
The sweetest guy, but a little hard. STUDY when he tells you to! But I'm having so much fun in Euro!
One of the best teachers I have ever had. His HUM I class is great with Mr. R, if not a little challenging, and Euro is also a blast. Get him at some point!
He was hilarious, he used to make fun of his teaching partner SOOO bad...she was awful, he's great!!!!
Best teacher I've ever had (is there an echo in the room?). Had him for hum and came back for more in Euro -- he forces you to think.
I had him for HUM & Euro. Great teacher, very funny & you learn lots.
He's a reactionary and a conservative Catholic. Makes you reexamine your assumptions. Compelling.
Got a C+ in Euro, but I learned a ton and am getting a minor in it thanks to him
Fantastic teacher. Actually makes students think; cares about students; funny!!
Awesome. learned a lot, my 100 balanced out 88 in engl, and he's funny - SoCo!
My best teacher this year, lectures r hilarious 'n intersting, you learn laughin
Wild lectures are a pleasure to listen to, and informative. Encourages thought.
best history teacher I've had. actually teaches history so people learn history
teaches well but differently hum I with him and rich is hard but well worth it
The best teacher I've had. Funny, knows a lot about history
FANTASTIC teacher. Best teacher I've ever had. Amazing class. Great hum w/ Rich.
definitely a very cool teacher! birthday dances are excellent & he is so funny!
Belabors specific details and misses the big pic--his HUM is fun but not edu
Has somewhat odd points he gets to. But very amusing. See the birthday dance!
He's a good teacher and he's cool, take AP EURO w/ him
he makes up for not making sense sometimes by being just plain cool
