Basically slept through all his classes and never noticed. Offers extra credit easy homework. Tests are a little bit hard but just read your textbook and you'll be fine.
Mr. Solowey is an okay teacher. His tests are completely ridiculous. He basically teaches right out of the textbook and doesn't give extra credit even when you work so hard. Good luck people.
one of the best teachers I've had TRUST ME Unless you are on your phone or sleeping the entire time in his class, there's no way you can't get 100. Just pay attention. The lessons do get a little boring but at least try.
Mr. Solowey is a great teacher. He talks a lot about history and he provides useful information for the tests and for our general knowledge. He shows movies and does his best to give kids a good grade. You just have to try a little.
good teacher :3 gives easy homework and the tests are easy because its all on what we did for homework and the classes are actually kind of fun because he shows us movies a lot when he knows we need a break. the movies are always on topic but very interesting at the same time.
BORING!!!!!!!!! Also gives tests on topics not covered in class. It's easy to fail his class........
Easy teacher, just read the textbook. He doesn't really teach though. But he does tell you to take notes on nothing
mad easy teaher just pretend u know everything u might do bad on test but on the report card u see good grades lol i didnt do much and i got like mostly 80s but he gave me a 95
funny, the class is fun because u don't really do anything other than talk. i liked him..............
not good teacher, but u watch movies all the time. jus study the textbook a lil b4 a test and u shud get over 90 in his class
Needs to make the classroom mood more enthusiastic. Grade is based on tests, participation, and projects so read the textbook! Collects but doesn't check the homework.
i got a 98 in his class! if you can't get a 90 or better in his class than there is something wrong with you! he doesn't play favorites with the asians and is there simply to teach the class!
Easy teacher but doesn't teach. Your only chance at passing a test is by reading his textbook. It's easy.
his a pretty easy teacher and his test, quizes are very easy you just need to read the textbook and their all multiple choice!
As stated, great friend, but mediocre (at best) teacher.
Solowey is an able teacher. He's not inspirational or anything, but he's laid back, and easy to learn from. Basically, he teaches from the textbook, and shows a movie sometimes. He tried singing "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" with me. LOL.
I don't know what to say about him. He's really cool though. Most of his teachings, you can find in the textbook.lly great and stuff but his teachings are ki
A lot of kids like him only because he's easy with the behavior. If you want to learn, ask for another teacher! He let my class do anything! I, Mean, Anything. The class was extremely loud. He doesn't bother with the behavior, but he asks to be a bit quieter which stopped the lesson all the time. He tells us to write notes and then tells us not to. His lessons are off and when he doesn't have one, he just shows us a movie. He's more of a friend and not a teacher. Just read the textbook.
here's the dilio. Alot of your grade is on HW. Thankfully they're really easy, and he doesnt even read them! I handed in my biology HW and he still gave it a check. You don't even need to pay attention in class, as long as you do the HW/study the chapter the test will be on shortly.
Nice teacher, teaches pretty cool but don't expect the test to be on your notes. Textbook is better for studying.
He is a really nice teacher and teaches fine. But whenever he gives us a test, he puts questions we've never seen before! And he never writes notes, only one word notes. However, he lets u do w/e u want to do in class, accepts late hw's, and is REALLY NICE. If u really want to pass though, read the textbook. A LOT.
Pros: Easy homeworks; Cons: He never punishes making the class to talk always and it's hard to learn, he never writes notes on the board, hardly finishes every lesson. My advice is that you read the textbooks and you will have around 85 and try to go over what he says in class because some questions on the tests are very specific of what he said then you will have hopefully 100.
Funny guy, I always remember him saying "i can't recommend you for ap! You're a lunatic!
One of my favorite teachers in tech, when you get on his good side you can have alot of fun in his class. He really doesn't get angry too much unless you cross the line and talk all the time. The homeworks are easy and take 15 minutes and he gives you 100's on the homework as long as you did it. Easy multiple choice tests, if you read the textbook chapters you can always get a 90 . Easy and fun class
one of the worst teachers i've had in my entire life. i think at one point he could actually teach but over the years he forgot and just relies on the slideshows
hes aiqht. he can be ok but sometimes he can be really annoying.
he is a nice teacher. ge gives a lot of homework but he doesnt really check it. as long as you do good on the test then you get high grade
very nice teacher. he doesn't rlyy take time to look at the hw tho. the tests were REALLY hard. the projects take a long time to finish. other than that, he's good =]
He graded entirely on the test grades which I felt was really unfair. People who never did their homework but cheated on his tests and got high 90s would get high 90s on their report card whereas someone who actually worked hard and got decent scores would only get an 85. Very lazy with assigning homework, checking homework, and going over homework in class. He doesn't clearly explain anything to me and I'm left confused before the test. He is very nice though and extremely tolerant.
If you do well on his tests, you'll do well on the regents. Other than that, he's not a very good teacher, he just goes over the homeworks in class with boring powerpoints that no one pays attention to.
smart history teacher, just has trouble teaching and keeping control in the class. he's very tolerant.
his class is soo boring...just do well on his tests and u'll do well. I didnt really learn anything..but my teacher during sophmore year (solomon) made up for everything. he's easy. just do all hwk.
Oh gosh, it's so easy to just doze off during class. Just read the whole textbook and you're all set. But the tests are usually about things such as the culture and nothing that are too general.
he fliped us off today.. then he got all embarrased, it was great!! he is soooo boring, so sit next to someone who you can pass notes with. and the tests are hard! there's always an essay but he just wants facts, no structure.. he likes the kids who partisipate (hint: if you type the hw: print out two sheets so you have the answers to his questions)
He's a really nice guy. He doesn't like if you eat in his class. Its hard to pay attention, but I listen to him and it helps. His tests 99% of the time have what he was talking about, which is sometimes not in the textbook. He tries to teach better now.
manzz..soo boring...he doesnt even read the hws...gives the same grade over and over.........
uses his laptop too much. too political. but class is alrite. its really layed back so hes cool.
Boring. Doesn't give notes, uses his laptop. Nice equipment, I guess. Movies! Fun! Tests are alright if you study.
good teacher, nice, but his class is alittle tooo easy, im gettin worried if we are learning everything, i only have 3 pages of notes in 2 weeks
This guy is so cool. He is not boring, you need to listen really good. Seems like he cares a lot
So if you're not listening because you're extremely bored from his lectures, don't worry. He's an easy grader and you learn a lot from the groupwork project.
He's cool and caring, and a very good person and friend! Do his HW, if lectures bore you! He trys hard, you don't see to many teachers doing that!
He gets mad when someone talks but takes a while telling them to shuttup. He's a good teacher if you can take notes from what he says.
hes a great PERSOn...buh mr solewey PLEASE...let us do some talking..your lecturing is BORING...BORING class, great man...makes sense?
great teacher if u can stay up. hes real nice and soft spoken but when you argue with him he goes jekyll n hyde on you. hes got a james bond computer.
He's kinda boring. He also wastes more time telling someone to be quiet just for calling out. His tests also don't relate with the review sheets.
he really likes history, a little boring sometimes, but if you can pay attention you definitely will learn... only had 2 tests this term, not including final
he seems nice but he needs a lot more confidence and carisma to be a good teacher. mr. belmont should tutor him ;)
the computer thing is cool, but the group project makes no sense what so ever! i could list a million reasons why it makes no sense. very boring, also nice
my god i just got him and he's so boring! my mind seriously wandered far away.
He's going on a subatical or something. aw... wanted him for next term
Easy teacher and extremely knowledgeble. He knows his subject as well as anyone.
He's really nice, but he should put more excitement into the lessons.
he is easy to do well in and easy to understand. very good teacher!!!
Really loved his class because he's funny in his own way. Sarah E
VERY boring class.Entertaining with his mannerisms.Hope he doesnt snap 1 day....
Really easy, just puts me to sleep, but yet i still get good grades =)
so cool! ii loved when he sung in class.... it was the best!
He's really nice-you get the work done and participate in class
so many hand gestures,hesCool,good discussions,doesnt notice that i dont do HW
He's mad cool & easy, just do the hw & well on tests & guarenteed a good grade
cool man. ppl fall asleep but me & Devinder like his class.Hand jestures r funny
HE GAVE ME 65 CUZ HE FOUND OUT I CHEATED ON THE FINAL PROJECT BUT HE COOL!!
Cut his class or go 2 his class and take the pass all period. U will get a 90.
do watever u want in his class, pretend u care,do well on the test and u get 90s
We were rating him in his classroom w/ his computers :O
I fall asleep in his class, but I liked going on the computers for "research"
