Everyone craps on him, saying he doesn't teach, and they usually do bad. I thought his class was a joke which it was, but it was very boring. However, if you manage to pay attention, you will get at least a 95. He gives full credit to late work, I handed homework a month late and still got full credit. He also offers test corrections, that give half credit back. If you're unhappy with your grade or don't pay attention, you should do some indiviual work. Other than that, he is a very easy grader

Stryker was probably one of the funniest teachers ive ever had and very easygoing by pretty much letting us do whatever we wanted...he seems to know everything but isnt good at explaining the material, there is a lot of work and he is a tough grader. I have 95s and above in all my other classes and I got a 70 on his final... so you have to basically teach yourself from the textbook but the class is hilarious and I always had a good time.

Teaches in probably the least efficient way ever. However, he really knows what he is talking about. He is awkward, which is a little funny. The class is extremely difficult and requires a ton of work. Mr. Stryker has a great sense if humor though. Overall very knowledgable but hard.

Mr. Stryker has a lot of experience, but this can make it challenging for him to explain basic concepts to students. He often assigns demanding assignments that require a large commitment of time. Student are often insufficiently prepared for exams.

He's the smartest guy in all of Shenendehowa. Flip side of that is that the reason he didn't do more with his career is that he doesn't know how to convey his thoughts. Nevertheless, if you can find him engaging you can learn a ton.

"Stryker" Is a very funny teacher and loves to joke around but overall his knowledge is very good. he just does not know how to teach it! his tests are SAT's and you need to prepare greatly. the problem is he stands their and talks the whole time and its boring... the plus side is the test corrections, you can get half your points back. So if you get him you need to pay attention!

Mr. Stryker is the most intelligent, well-spoken, and fun teacher I have ever had. He is extremely helpful and clear in his discussions and assignments, and always keeps the class awake with his wit, which is on Wilde's level. Awesome guy.

he only got 4.4!?!?! he deserves like a 20 out of 5! he made me actually like global again after a really bad teacher in 8th grade and i was so bummed when i didnt get him for cult/lit. he is hysterical and easy to make fun of but you dont want to bc hes an amazing teacher. by far my favorite ever. i miss him and his fist pumps and sarcastic remarks and teasing. he talks his tests up but they are easier then he says. he is totally amazing if you get him your life is complete :)

Look up cool, intelligent, and sarcastic in the dictionary and you'll find a picture of him. He's by far the greatest teacher ever. But be careful, if you challenge him to a fight, he'll crumble you and your soul with his fist of fury =P

Mr stryker has got to be the greatest teacher in the shen school district. He was a lawyer before and gave it up because he loves teaching. His class is funny and easy because all he does is make jokes about students during the whole period. Overall a reaaaly good teacher.

very funny, witty, and sarcastic. (all in a good way) his class is always the funnest of the day. his tests ARE EASY. he puts jokes on them! his homeworks reinforce the lesson, they arent to hard, to easy, or to time consuming. his projects are very hard though but he only gives a few the entire year so its not to bad. great teacher.
