See the thing about Mr. Mason is that he knows literally every detail about every event in history. He just doesn't teach us the things he knows! Throughout the year, he verbally taught us things maybe 5 times? I agree that he has become a very hands-free teacher, so you have to self-study everything in order to do well. This was pretty frustrating to be honest, but his extra credit movie opportunities are great so take advantage of those !
If you Mr. Mason, you will absolutely love him! He makes his classes super easy to learn and he doesn't care if you come late to his class. He is someone who is a hands-free teacher, meaning that he is not the type of a teacher who bogs you down with lots of notes and homework. Trust me, if you have him, absolutely go to his extra-credit movie sessions afterschool because you don't have to take notes! (make sure you're not doing other school homework and don't be on your phone during the movie.
Mr. Mason doesn't make you sit through powerpoints and take notes based on sentences on the board; he literally just goes through whole classes just talking, adding some interesting stories too. For a guy who doesn't take notes, since notes distract me from actually learning the material, you will learn so much in mr. Mason's class. He absolutely loves his job, seeing as he tells stories of paying hundreds of dollars for old historical items. His class is easy too. You are lucky if you get him
Very knowledgeable about the material. Wished he explained the ideas better through google slides presentation posted on Google Classroom. Study guides are difficult to complete b/c we don't go over everything before test. Best part is the extra credit he gives for watching history movies like Amistad. No other history teacher gives as much extra credit as Mr. Mason. Keep up the good work!
Mr. Mason knows his history very well and can teach it. The problem with his class is that we watch too many videos and it makes the class boring. Also, he doesn't do a good job of explaining the DBQ Structure, which is a problem.
I LOVE MR.MASON. He's probably my favorite teacher I've had so far. Although he doesn't really teach and you don't learn anything, he's so chill and super nice! You can show up to class 15 minutes late and he won't care. He's the nicest man I've ever met and his tests are so easy. I love him
He hides all his test in that cabinet.... just saying.... when he leaves the room....
his class was basically my nap period. i slept through every class because all he does is play videos with the lights off and 95% of my class slept too. he's a really funny and cool guy but not that good of a teacher haha i dont tihnk i learned anything but my grade was good because i did the outlines. i think i did 100 outlines that year
i think i've slept in 95% of the classes i had with him. he plays videos all the time and you really don't do much in class its super laid back
the worst part is that he assigns an outline from the textbook like every night.... as long as you do those, you'll get a good grade lol
mr. mason was a really fun teacher, i had a great time in his class. however i learned almost nothing in his class
I LOVE HIM! Possiblyl my favorite person in the entire world... I want him to be my honorary grandpa.
Mr. Scott Mason is an excellent teacher. I would be shocked if he had not seen the marvelous breadfish swimming in the ocean water.
decent teacher, i would really appreciate it if he stopped being too lazy to update the syllabus though. how can i turn in short responses if the syllabus is still on the calender from last year?
he is an awesome teacher but from what ive heard, he needs to watch over his class more carefully
I feel bad about giving him a low score, cause he's really awesome and is relatively easy for what's about to come. He's not too helpful, but his stories are awesome, if not too clear. Great teacher overall though!
HILARIOUS man. To be honest I don't feel like I learned that much from him, but it was an easy class and he made it fun. And I might be biased because overall, I don't like history that much.
i used to think his anecdotes were just interesting and random until i realized....they helped me remember facts during the test :D his class was a blast.
he makes uninteresting jokes and does not teach us well. he shows us his family tree instead of teaching. takes a very long time to grade tests.
he's very likable, and loves to teach and discuss. He loves history, and trip to gettysburg is mad fun. He's understanding and doesnt grade too hard. Watch TONS of movies in class, all educational. Hard to go to dore from him
never met anyone who didnt like mason, he's pratically the best there is... really cool guy.... really cool class, loves history and it rubs off on students
you could really tell he was passionate about what he was teaching. his class was kind of ridiculous, all you really do is watch movies. but he was a good teacher nonetheless. :)
wow what a fun class you watch movies 60% of the time and you actually learn something from them and he makes some pretty ridiculous puns too
so fun and easy going. he makes his classroom so homey and comfortable you almost forget ur at school. u learn a lot too btw
great teacher. soo laid back and easy going--sometimes he just talks about random stuff. however, you really do learn a lot of stuff and he makes history really really interesting and funny--awesome teacher.
Mason is one of montgomery's best teachers. anyone who has him for US I AP should appreciate him while u have him because next year is no treat.
without a doubt, the best teacher i've ever had. smart, makes learning fun, laid back, fun guy. only class i've ever had where i've learned and had fun.
tough class but so laid back. he's so nice. random, yet funny stories too
Mr. Mason is a laidback, very nice person. He's gets very into what he teaches, and actually got me excited about history. I think he's wonderful.
Greatest/funniest/most adorable man ever..i love mr mason
Wish i still had Mason for AP II !!! You're the best Mr. Mason!
whats up greatest teacher ever? i learn the most in his class
The coolest! Great jokes!!! Really knows his stuff! I miss having him for US I
Mr. Mason is awesome! He really gets you excited about a certain topic
Mr. Mason is the coolest! He knows where every dead historical person is buried
