When I first started his class, I had anxiety talking in front of other students but after a while I got over my fear. So, be prepared to talk a LOT and write many chapter notes. Having him for HUSH as teacher was painful but also great. I used to look forward to his class because he is a fair and amazing guy. Just be prepared to put in a lot of extra work outside of class. Collaboration with study guides is key!
If you're one of those kids that doesn't like talking in the class, this is not the class for you. I personally think his class format is stupid because everyone says the same thing in the discussions and we don't really learn anything. There's a lot of homework whether you're in honors or ap. He's a nice guy but the class takes up a lot of your time when it really doesn't have to
It was a pleasure to have Mr. Meyer as an APUSH teacher. He is extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and humorous. Before lectures he alway shares stories! Not to mention, he is willing to meet up with students to go over exams, essays, lectures, etc. Again, I highly recommend him. I have learned so much about American history and our democracy from him. Best teacher ever!
Great Teacher. Funny Guy. Love his stories if you pay attention that's an automatic b
He is simply the best. He's really funny and he likes to make class jokes.
I liked him a lot. There aren't many 100% fair teachers at Niles West, but Mr. Meyers is fair. He is funny but sometimes his jokes make no sense. Only history buffs can understand them.
For an Ap class, I don't think Us Hist is hard at all. If you pay attention to his lecures, participate in the discussions. do all the outlines and essays, and pay attention in class, you should get a B without even having to study. Mr. Meyer has such a funny personaliy. Whoever is in his class next year ask him about how much he loves Texas. Hahaha.
Mr. Meyer is a great teacher, except tests were hard, lectures were boring and discussions were pointless, but other than that he is a good teacher
Mr. Meyer is a great teacher but i ahted the discussions we would have during class they were soo boring... and the tests we pretty hard but he was a fun teacher most of the time.
ah global studies. lectures were boring SO U HAVE TO PAY YOUR EVERY ATTENTION. it was very helpful tho. and those outlines were long. he does grade it in length, so u have to work hard to get the grade u want. :]
As long as Mr. Meyer was not the concelor's son that worked at the school a few years ago then Joseph is okay, but if he is his son that is not fair...mmm I wonder how he got his job?
hes a cool guy but he grades by quantity not quality (good 4 sum ppl but not 4 me)......u usually gotta right lik 20 pages for outlines.......sometimes ur outlines end up bigger than what ur supposed 2 b outlinin
Meyer knows his stuff back and forth, which is good and bad. He goes through the motions too much. Overall, very good lecturer. Class discussions got boring, but were still useful. I felt very prepared for AP test.
does not teach you material from the book at all and expects you to take the test and pass... but it is an ap class, so can't complain too much i guess
Ahhhh, those discussions are so boring and there is so much circular reasoning I couldn't even pay attention. Overall I did learn a lot. Good structure to the class.
he is polite but a strict grader, i hate the journals. But if you put 2 hrs. of work a day, for his class, you will pass!
It's AP, what do you expect? I look forward to going to AP US, and he's a good guy.
Cool teacher, but sometimes the work and tests he gives us is tough. Other than that he is a very helpful history teacher.
He's awesome. Waived my paper. If you understand the matieral and study you will pass!
i guess i learned something in his class since i got a 5 on the AP test :)
great teacher but the outlining was hard...always waited till the last day to do it
i dont like how he gives us all those outlines to do i want different hw assignments.and the outlines should be due b4 we take the test 2 c if thier ok to stud
really good teacher...really hope i get him in ap history
Knows what hes talkin bout but a hard grader and there's got to be a way to change how discussions go, everyone says the same thing. funny/wierd/lame stories!
AP US was one of the best classes I took in high school. I still remember almost everything I learned, which is a lot more than I can say for my math classes.
its great because we don't do anything in that class. its probably the most relaxing class of the day and it is so easy to go on tangents. so fun!
awesome, easy-going teacher. you should lecture more, your lectures are great
Less discussions and more debates . . . with discussions you can yell at people
like the personal stories before the lectures, but way too many dicussions!!!
He's an extremely good lecturer, and kept AP US fun. Hats off to ya!
The class isn't as good as AP Euro..but the lectures and stories were great
::hand smothering face:: Good... Cool guy/class but discussions = repetitive..
I loved his sarcastic attitude...your success is all dependent on yourself...
