I love love love Dr.Wieck. He is one of the smartest teachers that I ever had. He also the ONLY teacher I ever had that not only tells students to make a change, but is also trying to make a change himself with his pension case. Keep it up Dr.Wieck!!!!!!
BEST MAN I EVER MET IN MY LIFE!!! I WANT HIM TO ADOPT ME!!
Dr. Wieck, and I use the word "doctor" loosely, has a very boring class. It smells of old people, is either too hot, or too cold, he is very sarcastic, energetic, and it is sometimes uncomfortable due to his old age. He will spend most of the class planning his lawsuit against the Board of Ed., then try to cram things into near the AP test date. 80% of the time you'll write essays & do vocab, 10% of the time you'll present that work, and 10% will be a study hall. Useless if you want to learn.
Not sure what the others mean by their whining. This is a hard course, but it is SUPPOSED to be a college course. It might be others mad at Dr. Wieck for fighting for the teacher pension.
A heck of a teacher and this guy is helping save the old age pension of all the KY teachers at the same time!!! Amazing teacher and amazing human. Wish I had more people at this time like this to look up to. Class is lots of essays and vocabulary, dbqs, but when he lectures (not sure what the others mean here) you become part of it. Knows the material and there a bunch to cover. TAKE THIS for the experience!!!
This class is hard, but I'm learning a lot. We have a lot of material to cover, but I feel it's getting me ready for the test in May. The experience with Dr. Weick is good, so far.
Dr. Wieck is one of the worst teachers at Manual. Although he is knowledgeable about APUSH he is an awful teacher. The only way you will learn is through your textbook. An average class is him sitting on his computer while the students read the textbook and do vocabulary or write short essays which he doesn't even read. He puts in minimal effort as a teacher and its almost the end of the semester yet we've still never had a lecture. I would recomend doing anything to avoid his class. Ull get a B
rarely teaches class, all vocab
Needs to retire. Very nice man to talk to individually, but he is too dedicated to teaching and the AP test. There is way too much reading from the textbooks, he does not really understand you are not his only class. There are tons of vocabulary words, anywhere from 100-300 he assigns at once, and he makes you write essays until your hand falls off. Good prep for the AP test, but he could chill out a little. Take it only if you're willing to dedicate your life.
I learned so much from Wieck. He's surprisingly interesting as a person too. Thumbs up.
Doc Wieck's class must be the most helpful and interesting history class I have ever been in. I can finally learn history without any pain. All of the assignments that he assigns are helpful. He doesn't assign "busy-work" and he gives you multiple days to work on assignments so that you can manage your time without being stressed out. He doesn't waste class time with boring lectures but always has an interactive class. You wouldn't believe how happy I am to finally have a good history teacher
This was a lot of work, but I also learned a lot about the US. I think I aced the AP test, too. Thanks Doc.
80-90% get a 3 or better on the AP test. I got a 4 and was happy. I learned a lot about the US.
There is a lot of self-study involved, but he teaches from an interesting angle and tries to get to you to see more of the big picture.
I learned a lot with Wieck and was ready for the exam. He finished the book about a week before the exam. Good teacher.
He is a very intelligent man who makes a great teacher! He does a good job of making the subject fun and interesting but at the same time gives out tough tests. Just do the reading and have fun!!
Student of 10/4/06 should look on page 967 in the text. That's the "old" material teacher was discussing.
hes a cool teacher. very educated. sometimes i dont understand his jokes... should i?
I've had him for 3 different classes. A genius. Has Ph.D. from France! Should teach college.
disorganized and uses the classroom for his political views
One of best teaching experiences I've had. His daily rants in U.S History were entertaining and informative. He is very cool
OC was the best high school experience ive had yet. oc2! take it. you know you want to. do it for randy
FANTASTIC in teaching writing, but a little disorganized. Also, an incredible US History teacher!
