Mr. Mahoney is a solid teacher, but not in the watching aspect. Yeah he's cool and I love him but honestly, he doesn't teach anything to his "WHAP" classes except random stories from his life. He makes you read chapters in the textbook book as your only thing you learn. He likes to give 2 second recaps of the chapter, which doesn't teach you anything, then gives you a sheet to do with your groups. EVERYDAY. Maybe the majority of the class wouldn't get below a 50 on every test if he taught more.
I love Mr. Mahoney more then any other teacher. I make get 28s on his tests but i somehow manage to get over a 90 each mp with RUBBER DUCKY POWER!!! I had him 8th period and he was always fun to bother after class with all his favorite students. RUBBER DUCKYS!!!!!
WELL.he picks favorites (which are the ones who suck up up to him or are really smart) and doesn't bother helping the rest. actually, he just calls on those people and make them look stupid. the class test average for our last test was a 56. NOT EVEN A PASSING GRADE. someone let me know why he's allowed to teach us world history. wait,he doesn't even teach us. we read the chapter at home. he gives us easy, pointless group work that doesn't even revolve around what's on the test. gonna fail.
Maloney is cool, but his class is hard. He emails things at 9:00 pm the night before it's due saying "sorry, stay sleepless my friends". I hate his class, it's extremely difficult, and I don't understand why the school forces freshmen to take it. Mahoney is still learning how to teach AP to us as well so we are under prepared for the ap test.
Mahoney is type lit teacher.
mr mahoney is a funny guy but he does not teach us anything. he picks favorites and does not go to certain kids when they are struggling. he looks and helps the smart kids who don't need it but fails to even look at the kids (like me) who get 30s on his tests
A lot of work but a great teacher who makes class fun
Brian Mahoney is a good guy but he picks favorites and its mad annoying. He has legit sass and the textbook is the only reason I can understand anything at all in global. his lessons don't make any sense to me and don't really help me study for his test. overall I'm just confused to what's going on in his class. #what is global???
straight up savage love him and mad chill. Homeowkr and lessons sometimes don't correspond to well with tests
my man is a savage best teacher in the school 10/10 would recommend easily equivalent to chuck Norris
Mahoney is a savage,teacher equivalent to Chuck Norris but better.
Great teacher, great person,is one of the most understanding teachers a student will ever get.
Best global teacher everrr and his outlines end up helping you he has a great personality and his teaching is engaging as well. makes you work for your grade but he gives you a lot of extra credit. overall great teacher
mahoney is cool i guess. he gives mad outlines and asks annoying questions but at the end hes v cool
What can i say about Brian Mahoney? He is a delightful person and would be the fun and quirky Uncle of the family!! However, his tests confuse the living doo-doo out of me, but in the class I sorta undertsnad. if he gave out more clear notes like mr.goldberg i would most likely have a higher grade! Great person tho!! I would recommend him as a teacher and as a buddy <3
Great guy very intelligent teaches great life lessons
he gives alot of homework and follows the standards of common core so your going to be doing a lot of annoying group work that is useless and a waste of time. the global regent is easy so dont worry
He is amazing. He taught me so much and related it to the real world. Even though he gives a lot of work, he is only trying to prepare us. He is the best teacher and remember cultural diffusion is the answer to everything!
Mr. Mahoney gives excessive homework. However, he informs us about what is going on in our everyday life and he is teaching us how to climb the top of the "pyramid". He also gives us a good example, to plug in to him, he is the outlet, if we would like to actually learn we have to plug in, he does not have enough enough energy to reach out and plug us in himself.
Mr. Mahoney is a great teacher! He always taught with a sense of humor that helped to make social studies understandable to help us. He is very knowledgeable on the material that he teaches and he brings the material to life by immersing the students with real life situations. He will give you tools not only to do well on the regent, but give you tools such as outlining which is very useful in sophmore year and improving our lexicon. Thank you if you see this ~Wurtzite Boron Nitride
He was hands down a teacher i will always remember you. He will seem intimidating- however the work gets very easy toward the end of the year. It will be rough in the beginning with the outlines and essay; but it's all totally worth it. He gives inspiring life lessons and truly cares for his students. You ever need someone to talk about life with- it's him. I love Mahoney- even though he's weird (in a good way i guess)
Mr.Mahoney was a great teacher. Although he was always set on making us into diamonds, his intentions were always good. Make sure you are in school for his my life power point it's hilarious !!!
great guy, with great lesson plans helped me alot throughout the year. Easily one of the best global teachers there are and I thoroughly enjoyed much of the classroom setting.
Such a great teacher, helped me turn from coal to a diamond
Mr.Mahoney is the best teacher everrrrrr , he gives alotssss of extra credit and hes the bestttttttt. His test are easy and he is very knowledgable. p.s Lil gangsterr
mr mahoney is the best okay yeah he may give a lot of work but he is only preparing us. he is my favorite teacher so haters step back BYEEEE
EXPLAIN THE PHENOMENA OF CULTURAL DIFFUSION IN TERMS OF TRADE #thestruggle
He gives us outlines which are the only source of learning and he sings blurred lines in class while discussing the domestication mentioned earlier in the year. He also sang a song by Kelly Clarkson and talked about his teenage years which were kind of hilarious. He also gives hard tests but if you're a student who is determined and studied all the time you should do fine. He gets way off topic so you have to remind him what you were doing previously. Mahoney gives extra credit so do it !!!
It upsets me that people comment negative things about this teacher just because they may not understand the background message of it all. Through-out all of his teachings, his background message is about life and he finds a superb way to connect studies to modern day. Mr. Mahoney is always there to help students and he is the best teacher I've ever had. I respect him and his ways. He is always fair and brilliant and is just extremely extraordinary. Anyone who doesn't believe so is insane.
He doesnt teach in class. He always goes off topic and tells random stories. You would think this is a good thing but its not because then he gives us impossible tests on topics we should've learned but didn't.. He gives tons of homework but doesn't teach in class. He says his tests are easy but theyre not. You dont want him as a teacher ever
Mr. Mahoney is a great guy. He is always helpful. His biggest thing is homework. He does in fact give out alot of extra credit, which can help boost your average, but if you bomb every test you will either barely pass, or not pass at all. Treat him with respect, when I was in his class everybody was so rude to him. If you listen to him and do what he syas you should have no problem with his class. I recieved an 82 on my Global History regent. Good Luck to you!
Mr. Mahoney either doesn't stay on topic or stays on topic but vaguely. He expects us to teach ourselves through outlines and expects after one outline for us to know everything and anything. He grades essays harshly, especially if you wrote it at home. Make sure you type your outlines for extra points because you're going to need them. You NEED to do the extra credit as well. We have little to no recollection of previous topics because he barely goes over them. If you get him, good luck.
Overall, he is an okay teacher. I wish he spent more time in class reviewing and clarifying what we read in the textbook. Honestly, I feel like I learn more from the text than I do from him. He does teach, but I feel as though it is not enough. I barely retain any information from previous topics I learned. Also, his tests are difficult. He thinks they are easy but they arent. It is easy for him because he teaches the subject
He gives outlines to do for homework and that is the only source of learning in his class. He always gets off topic and gives hard tests and its not fair. He always talks about himself when no one cares.
Mr. Mahoney is honestly one of the best teachers I've ever had. I'm pretty sure he thinks I hate him, but that's hardly the case. Although I learn more from the textbook than I do in his class, his jokes and personality makes class fun. His tests don't match with his teaching, but in all, its the life lessons he gives us that matters, rather than the actual quality. Good luck future Mahoney classes, you'll need it.
nice when he wants to be... but you should lay off the POP quizzes and outlines for a while mahoney.... ENJOY future class of mahoney
He is ok. His grading system is stupid and you have to do all of his extra credits to get higher than a 90. When we review for his tests, some things he never mentioned.
Very "interesting" teacher... Good luck...
Honestly he is the hardest teacher i have ever had to deal with and i dont agree with his methods on teaching, i shouldnt have to do a bunch of extra credit to do well. I am in institute kid and it is expected i do well, so why does his institute classes have a test average in the 70's? That just proves that he isnt a good teacher, if the majority of his institute kids are failing tests.
best teacher i ever had . taught us about global and life !
good teacher had fun in his class hated the outlines at first but then realized they really help. his tests are annoying though! a cool and funny guy can talk to him about anything :)
Mahoney is a great teacher; he clearly connects the past, present, and future. He is entertaining and will inspire you if you let him. Mahoney will also help you, even after you had his class.
