He cares about his students and tries to help them
He is very difficult, but good if you can put the time in.
He gives a lot of work but if you can pull it off itnos very rewarding
If you are the kind of person who can sit in a classroom and concentrate to a teacher talking for 40 minutes straight and understand everything, then you are the kind of person who will succeed in his class. If you are not the kind of person then you will have a hard time in his class. Becker teaches by assigning incredibly time consuming and most of the time hard homeworks, and his tests are extremely dificult. if you do all the homeworks and get good test grades then you are set for the regent
I had Becker this year...taught us nothing in class. But when it came to homework and the videos that he showed us, I learned so much. The one thing that I'll tell you is that he takes off a lot of points for mistakes. The tests are totally fair and I think that I killed the regents this year. I never even needed to use the textbooks. The best thing was that he gives you a full analysis of all the past regents makes you memorize all of the past MC on past regents. Thank you Becker!
Mr.Becker in a nutshell, Playes music in the begining of class, 2 days a week he is happy and very nice, all other days hes angy and mean. Gives pretty hard tests. He doesnt teach much information in class but more skills on how to study. You must do his homework or you wont be able to understand anything and you will do very bad. Overall hes a very nice guy, but his class is very difficult and most of the time pointless. Get on his good side !
To you idiots who say hes not a good teacher, hes prob one of the best teachers I've ever had. He messes around in the classes, hes unbiased, and most importantly he knows the deal
hes really nice and understanding... most of the time i like him and i think hes a good teacher
Mr Becker is the best teacher ever....his classes are funny and even though you always walk out thinking you learned nothing, the next day you realize you know
He doesn't teach, but all his student past the regents(2003-4). How lucky he is?????? Give me some of your luck Mr. Becker.
he is hard ill give him that, but he can teach, overall he is as good as they come so buzz off he is a good teacher
he's an awesome and fun teacher...we are doing a rap project in class!!! i mean how much cooler can he be?? we make up raps and perform for our class!!
Mr. Becker was one of the best teachers I ever had. Very direct and to the point. He met me for extra help everyday for weeks. Amazing teacher!! -Mike Goltche
Paul is great; though at times it may feel like an independent study course.make outlines with kids you learn more than just american history
people dislike him cause he's lazy and a hard teacher, yet... i feel i still learned quite alot
