I had him in grade 8 and Bi 12. I found it hard at first but ended up with 93%. Maybe if i took course someplace else I get 125% lol. I decided to major in biology next year because of this class. Lots of information but it is interesting. Hes nice but he makes you work hard. He puts the whole course online and gives practice tests which helped a lot once I started doing them. A few more labs like in chemistry would be nice. One of my best teachers at Brookswood.
I currently have him for Bio 12. He is unclear in his notes as he constantly adds filler and attempts to explain things in a "fun" way but ends up confusing us with irrelevant terminology. There's nothing to apply your knowledge to until the test. He requires condensed notes prior to the test which HAVE to be done the way he wants them, whether it helps you learn or not he doesn't care. My friend took Bio 12 in night school and got 95%. She had 76% in his class.
Awesome teacher! Kinda mean and tease people but still a fun great class and teacher :)
I really liked Mr. Ashcroft. A lot of people didn't like his class because it was all notes, but he made them very clear and easy to understand and had interesting stories. He likes good music and taught the guys from GOB when they went to BSS, which is why he has a poster from one of thier shows in his classroom.
I had him last year for grade 8 and i hated him but i think he taught me some thingd like people are not always nice in the world, but i wasnt a very good student tho so... but he hated me too so its
I personally dont mind the man, but currently I am doing the 100 questions he assigned us! :( -a Grade 8 Miserable
A very friendly guy who goes out of his way to be nice and talk with you, and who spends every class going over notes. We didn't use the Biology textbook once, but did fill an entire notebook. Every c
Tough teacher, doesn't like to give out "happy marks". You need to work hard in his class!!!
Fun teacher that finds ways to make boring subjects fun. He's a great teacher.
not easy, but a great teacher! I learned a lot in his class!
I had him for Bio 12. His class is easy because he doesn't give assignments, but he becomes defensive, condescending, and unwilling to cooperate when you point out a mistake. I found that frustrating.
He is awesome teacher. I have himm for Science 8 and his note is really helpful and awesome. I am going to miss him after i graduate!!!!! ( Too much homework though=)
Great! I enjoy his teaching style and I don't know how all the people in my class who complain are ever going to survive if they go on to University. Great guy too!
I had him for Gr. 8 science and Gr. 12 Bio. He's awesome! The most interesting science teacher at Brookswood, by far. He really cares about his students.
Not an easy teacher, but I have learned so much in his class. Have a good summer, Mr. Ashcroft.
High standards but very interesting and knowledgable. Cares for his students too.
mr. ashcroft is the boringist teacher i have ever had
Mr. A knows Motle Cru and Def Leppard and he can teach better than most I think hes a good teacher. He can be stict.
He isn't easy, but he made classes fun and I think I did well on the Bi exam. He is one on the best teachers I've had. Thanks Mr. A!
hi...b4 i thought u were a good nice teacher,but know, ur not, u r pretty unclear, and not funny anymore
One of the best teachers I have ever had! Actually learned something in science that year =D Miss ya Mr. Ashcroft! -Allysa
Very tough, but knows what he is talking about with lots of detail
