Mr. Ryan is a nice guy and does his best to teach his students the material. I like him so far, except we spent a lot of class time talking about the 2008 election instead of going over the book. His tests are hard, but that's APUSH in a nut shell. If he gets angry, he will make you write tough essays in a short amount of time, but besides that, he's a nice guy.
I love Mr. Ryan. He is the best teacher ever. I look forward to apush all day. I am so glad i have him. You will also love him. He is nice and funny. He makes you see history in a whole new way. But of course, YOU HAVE TO STUDY, DUH!
Mr Ryan is the single coolest most helpful teacher I've ever had. He is the nicest man ever and will make you get a 5 on the AP Test, and at least 700 on the Subject Test even if you don't study. The only people that hate him are bad students, otherwise, if you're a decent student with a positive attitude, he's a nice guy!
He is the most wonderful teacher ever!!! He's really nice, despite what others who failed his class might tell you. If you try in the class and you're nice to him, he'll be nice to you and you'll do well.
its the end of the year, but i dont think he really knows my name. dont be offended if he doesnt know who you are. also, he may be a little all over the place but hes a good guy who will prepare you for the AP, contrary to belief. HI MR RYAN!
He may be nice but he was extremely rude to me and I wasn't even in his class. I was waiting outside another history teacher's class becuase she had asked me to do so while she was talking to another student. He imperiously just walks up to me and says CAN YOU LEAVE in the rudest tone. This guy needs help!
Yes, the rumors are true. He's bi-polar. It's really not he's fault though, I don't think. But, when he's in a good mood, he's an enjoyable teacher. Just be prepared for the sudden bouts of anger when he'll yell and refuse to teach for the rest of the period. He's a little scatter-brained too. But, he's probably the best APUSH teacher you can get right now.
Mr. Ryan was my favorite teacher last year! I learned a lot, and got a 5 on the AP. He is the funniest teacher ever, but he can be absentminded sometimes. He checks this website, btw. :-)
i love mr. ryan. he is a hilarious man who truly means well. He never learned my name all year. Every day i would laugh hysterically at his jokes. Quote of the year: "let's take a quiz"
Watch out for excess noise/some sort of announcement or he might suddenly get angry; otherwise he's pretty nice and funny also. His powerpoints can get long on block days but pay attention because thigns show up on tests but are not in the book. For AP, quizzes are good because they give you incentive to read a little at a time and then you know the right answer for the test ( answer worth twice as much). Participate in class a lot and be polite to him and your participation grade will be high.
Mr Ryan is a really cool teacher and his class is really informative. There's a lot of random HW but it brings your grade up a lot. He is probably the most random teacher I have ever had in my life but it's funny, it's impossible to sit through one of his classes without laughing at least once. His tests can be random at times and there is usually some random statistic you don't realize you need to know but they are usually pretty fair. Make sure to keep up with your webgrades he tends to zonk out w/ grades
Mr. Ryan is a great instructor. I’m from the class of 06’ and I got a 4 on the AP US exam. He is an excellent pre-college instructor in that his lectures invite participation and are chalk full of worthy analysis. His class is an encouraging environment for learning. If you want to slack off and “chill,” then this is not the right instructor for you, because he treats the classroom like a class, not a babysitting den. As a graduate, looking back I truly appreciate the respect he gave us by expecting our b
Mr. Ryan is a very tough teacher, but if you have a legitimate reason for missing an assignment or something, he will give you the benefit of the doubt. Though he does have the occaisional temper, I really respect how he puts up with some of his classes. If you are really dedicated to the material and show that you are willing to work hard for your grade, you will do fine. He even sacrifices his personal time to help you if you need it. A really awesome teacher
He can get suddenly furious sometimes, but for the most part, he's funny and easygoing. If you study and do the work, the class is easy. Just do the terms and participate a lot!
Mr. Ryans is kind of like a college teacher. He expects you to do the work. He can be a bit tough at times but basically if you study, you'll do fine.
It's an absolute joke. He doesn't know anything, doesn't know how to teach, doesn't know how to do anything. Just do the reading, and you can sleep during class, if you can't avoid him.
if u cheat he wont fail u, but make a joke about it. he's perhaps the funniest person ever. dont talk or do anything wrong or all hell will break lose. such an entertaining class wow. he's not hard
Funniest guy ever, nicest guy ever. Class is very relaxing to be in, u learn a lot. Great atmosphere. Tells funny stories about his kids. Very good overall.
oh man!!! i loveeee this man!! the class is really easy. just make sure you read the assigned reading, or atleast glance at it, because there are like 98430 pop quizzes. otherwise, he is really easy.
mr. ryan is a really cool guy. ya, hes forgetful, but whatever. i really have a great time in class. just pay him some respect and he'll teach you sooo much. take him!
looool mr ryan seems surprised about what is in his slide shows ! does he write them himself ? nice guy and pretty good teacher
mr ryan seems a little confused...he forgets about assignments and jumps from conversation to conversation. he's a nice guy...hes just doesnt have the most efficient way of teaching
"Go on to college and get full of knowledge and stay there until you are through. For if they can make penicillin out of moldy bread, they can make something out of you."
mr ryan isn't very clear and is extremely forgetful but is a good teacher overall. i learn alot from his teaching. i never open my book and always get decent grades on his tests
in his APUSH class it is a must to read the material and keep up with the class-- he does a great job of presenting the material in a non- bias way though -- just dont slack off
Mr. Ryan's class isn't difficult...but that doesn't mean that getting an A is easy. He changes his mind a lot and he's very disorganized. Don't take his class.
Worst teacher. He'll tell you he told his students to post bad things on here but it's a lie. He's horrible, NEVER take him.his class is a waste of time
hes really hard, he gives a pop quiz almost everyday... make sure when he asigns u to do an outline u do it, bc he will giv u a pop quiz the next day!!!!
the hardest history teacher!!!! BEWARE after each hw give a pop quiz!!! very hard
he can't say a sentecne without interrupting it a thousand times with "uuuuuh...uhhhh"
This guy gave me detention for no reason...What the hell? I didn't learn anything He's very unclear about directions and gets upset when you dont understand.
how it hangn ryan man hes the best teacher i have hes avrage dificulty
GUY D -- HOWZ IT HANGING? STOP MAKING THE REST OF US FEEL BAD.
Generally a decent teacher and goes over all the material. Gives essays as punishment whenever in a bad mood, even if the class isn't behaving badly
best history teacher. Makes ap easy to understand. funny
Extrmeely Easy APUSH class. He does accuse students of talking but not me :P. tests are jokes as I finsih them in 5 minutes and get the highest grade.
falsely accuses students of talking, even if they are across the room from each other. doesnt care about students, worst tests in the world.
The man teaches things that he himself has absolutely no idea about whatsoever.
He makes history interesting. Is funny. But too much work!
He is the hippest teacher I've ever had. He hlepped me with all my work and he is the very best.
