I love Mr Coval, but good luck if you have him, I got a 3 on AP Euro exam but half of it was studying it by myself.
BARRY COVAL THE GOOOOAAATTTT. When Mr. Whelan was out and I had the honor of having Mr. Barry A. Coval as my stand-in teacher, I felt that his lessons and his style of teacher helped by learn better than that of Mr. Whelan. Nothing against Jimmy, just felt that Coval was a better teacher for me and the way that I Iearn. He was more interactive and let us talk and debate (which I understand may waste some class time) which helped me understand the material much better.
he doesnt prepare you for tests at all. other teachers teach their students the content of the lesson while Mr.Coval just shows you vidoes. His class always has to study so much more than other classes and thier themselves the material from the textbook. .
Mr. Coval ROCKS!!! Loved him when I took Global I or as he calls it "Global Fun." Couldn't wait for his class. Tests ere easy.
I remember watching him grade the homework. He wouldn't even read it and he would judge what grade he'd give you based on the length of your assignment. The longer it was, the higher the grade. I think once I answered part of the question in the beginning, then drifted wayyy off topic just to make the paper longer and he never realized it because he doesn't really read the HW
he's a good teacher. he makes you learn without even realizing you're learning. as long as you do your homework (unlike me) you should be fine. just do your homework.
I use to think that Mr. Coval was a bad teacher who was incredibly lazy. It is true that he is lazy, but when I was studying for the Global regents, I remembered the majority of the stuff I learned in Global "fun". So, I figured that he wasn't that bad of a teacher after all
AMAZING TEACHER. may not seem like he cares, but he does. amazing extra help, notes, and handouts. great teacher overall
Coval is a good teacher. He has a lot of knowledge, and explains things in a clear manner. I agree that his handwriting is horrible, but as long as you listen, notes are easy to take as well.
Pretty good teacher...considering I never did my homework. Then again it was regents global history. You could probably never look at the material and still ace it after a couple of years down the road. His handwriting is chicken-scratch though. But he's a very amusing teacher nonetheless.
SO MUCH HW!! AND ESSAYS AND HE IS A STRICT GRADER AND YOU CANT READ WHAT HE WRITES ON THE BOARD AND HES FUNNY BUT HES ONLY FUNNY BECAUSE HE MAKES FUN OF KIDS.
ehh... not the best... i cant read his notes and he gives way to much homework.
even though i dropped AP Euro a month in, i think mr. coval is a great teacher. he definitely instilled fear in me though. other than that he's chill.
first day of class...YOU GUYS ARE GOING FAIL!! ONLY 5 OF YOU WILL DO GOOD. oh god. he scares me. hes a funny teacher. but you HAVE to do your work.
Good guy, funny teacher...maybe not the best teacher in the world, but c'mon, it's regents history, you can figure it out.
i can't read his hand writing and he hardly teach us!!!
Mr. Coval is the best!! I had the worst social studies teacher last year but he DEFINITLY makes up for it!!! #1 Teacher!!! (and i stink at social studies)
Coval is awesome, leads the best disscusions, gives alot of homework but his teaching makes up for it!
best teacher ever! Do your homework, be independent, and work hard-then you'll do well.That IS what's expected, right?
if you hate jericho so much, leave. either way, still a funny and nice guy... i liked him :)
Gives way too much homework. If he was easier on the homework, then I would like him a lot better.
Coval's pretty cool - but speak up or he might forget you're in his class
