His lessons were clear and the worksheets he gave us did help me memorize what I needed to know for the exam. As long as you complete those, pay attention in class, and finish assignments on time, you should be fine. He's an okay teacher overall.
Mr Watt is very good and helpful when he teaches. His lessons teach a lot of information and the tests are very straight forward. What I didn't like about him was at the end of the semester, he gave the same worksheet for 3 weeks (define key terms, summarize sections of chapter, answer questions) and didn't check the answers, he marked it based on if you finished it or not. I didn't learn much from it. Other than that, Mr Watt is a very good teacher.
He thinks that he is really funny but he is not. He makes jokes that are mean and rude and he sometimes makes you feel uncomfortable. When he gives you tests and quizzes he never gives you the answers and never goes over the specific test recommendations. When he gives worksheets they are very blurry and you can never read them.
He teaches you really specific information (stats, etc. ) that is not necessary for the exam. He made us memorize a whole bunch of Canadian lakes which were really not worth it. His textbook work was really boring. You also have to check your rubrics sometimes, because he always totals up your mark incorrectly or gives you the wrong percentage etc.
While he sometimes fails with regards to the factual accuracy of the material he teaches, he is often willing to be corrected and accepts criticism well. Otherwise, he does a pretty good job of teaching in a way that makes students understand the material.
No I will never recommend him
He is nice but not good teacher
I have failed, not because a bad student because he can't teach
Horrible teacher, very boring and does not prepare you for tests
Does not prepare you for tests. Some-watt (hah) nice. Don't ask him questions or he will talk about things that won't even answer your question. Won't recommend, transfer if you get him.
He is a good person but cannot teach
Mr. Watt's classes consist of textbook work and personal life stories. However, if you do the projects and study for tests you should finish his course with a high grade. Classes can get a bit dull though. He doesn't have favourites which is nice, he'll give you the mark you deserve
Though I am doing quite well in his class (95+). Favouritism is a big problem.
I find that a majority of his classes are simply worksheets and reading from the textbook. If I was given these sheets and the textbook I could finish the course in a week.
He also spends a lot of time on random life stories, not class related lessons.
Keep in mind, he does not actually read over the work you hand in.
If you simply make it look completed, just literally write any random nonsense, it'll pass.
i had mr watt for grade10 history and for grade 9 geography. he is a pretty good teacher and he really pushes you to get the best possible mark you deserve. what i don't like is that sometimes he docent give us enough class time to get our homework done but what he talks about is pretty interesting.
Mr. Watt's classes are very VERY boring. He tends to talk about one thing, and then starts an unnecessary anecdote which can last 10-20 minutes. Then at the last 30 minutes of class he gives you work. The work and lesson plans ALWAYS will go by the textbook. His tests are okay. Just go by the textbook and try to listen in class.
Mr. Watt is a humourous teacher and is quite funny. Although his tests can be pretty hard sometimes, he pushes you just enough that you LEARN from the class. The only thing I do not like about him is that instead of trying to prepare students with clear review material, he just tells you "what is going to be covered" and gives you a bunch of worksheets to be completed. If he was just a bit more of a helper in this aspect, he would make an awesome teacher that I dream of.
I've only had him once in Geography, and I have to say, he was a fair teacher. Not as captivating as I hope from all teachers but fair. However, that might just be due to the subject. More, recently I've known him a funny, outgoing Scotsman who always has a joke up his sleeve. And perhaps a Scotch lollipop stuck to his sleeve. He also gets extra points for his a cool accent.
I had gr10 History and gr12 World Issues with Mr. Watt. As much of a hard teacher he can become at times, he is really great as a person, and is really fun to be in his class at times, despite sleeping through a lot his world issues classes.. He covers the general stuff in world issues but places some extra material on which was in text book which not many read. So yes it can get frustrating at times. However he is not as a hard marker than the rest of the social science department. Overall a great teacher.
one of the worst teachers at mac- doesnt teach well, tests you on material not covered in class, picks on certain students, picks favourites, doesn't give proper test reviews...,
a very very good teacher, i can complain only about 1 thing, the exam questions were RANDOM and nowhere in the course did we cover any of them, however apart from that, his class is always the one that brings up my mood
Mr. Watt is amazing! So glad I had him. Yes he talks and lectures but can you blame him? The subjects themselves are boring. He just makes things funny.
one phrase says it all about this teacher..."Scotland is always on top of England". enough said, the funniest teacher and the most entertaining class ever. wish he taught more courses...maybe i wouldn't be as bored as often.
Terrible teacher- my least favorite in all of mac. He never properly prepares you for tests or for the exam, he is really boring/monotone, and he is an overall mean person. He marks projects based on how much he likes you. If he doesn't like you, automatically he will prevent you from getting a good mark on the project.
tests were really hard, but you learned a lot from him, especially when he goes off topic! My favourite teacher from high school.
Mr watt is a great teacher when it comes to physical education, he knows waht he's talking about and he makes health class a joke. But when he's serious and about to teach a lesson in health class, you get vrey sleepy and eventually drop - eyes shut. But overall, he's a great teacher and his teachings are not that bad, but not the best. He studders a little when he talks, but it's alright. He also gets off topic and starts telling the class aobut another day. Overall, good teacher
I think the last three people are the same person commenting three times O_O. Anyways, I LOVE Mr. Watt. He's probably my favourite teacher in the whole school. He's so funny, and even when he goes off topic you always learn something usefull (like people in the 70s had shoes with live fish in them!). He's very nice, and always makes everyone laugh. His tests are fair, and he wouldnt put somthing on a test that he didn't already go over in class. Way ta go Mr. Watt, just too bad I don't have him this year :(
he sucks so much. Mr.Watt is the worst teacher ever he talks for 75 whole minutes and he marks soooo hard
celtic, rangers and hearts, they're all horrible teams, we all know it's all about inter milan, mr.watt's the bomb, he's super cool, can't really say much abt his teachin b/c i just wasnt doin the work lol, he's still cool lol
i had him for gym and he was great... extremy funny, and fun to be around....... eben if he had no respect for us rugby players and the sport of rugby in general lol. i enjoyed every one of his classes and hope to have him as a teacher in years to come
He's so funny! And I love his off-topic rants and stories. Can always make jokes out of everything. Teaches well, if you do your work, marks well too.
I had Mr. Watt for World Issues in grade 12 and he was a great teacher. Funny guy, makes jokes that come from the same book as me, but he knows geography and world issues and really opened my eyes to the world around me. Thanks Mr. Watt!
he is a great teacher i really had fun in his class he is holarious most of the time lol but he is a gud teacher
He is one of the best teachers i ever had !! I have no idea why people say he's boring or a hard marker or any of that stuff! Maybe if you guys payed attention in class you wouldn't fail all your tests. But seriously, he's one of the best teachers i ever had in my life. Very funny, very easy to get along with, good at teaching, AND gave me 91% on my test :D
not alot of people seem to like him very much. don't know why. he's the funniest teacher ever! and his class is one of the only grade 12 class i enjoyed.
Mr watt is not a good teacher.He did not prepare us for any tests,and goes off topic a lot.He is a very hard marker,and is very subjective in his marking.He also chooses favorites.
This teacher did not prepare my son for his tests, or his exam. A completely lazy teacher!
Bad teacher- doesnt prepare students for their final exam. Never gives proper test review and puts material on tests that was not covered in class
uh...mr. watt is ..uh..uhhh.... well he marks REALLY REALLY hard and is funny SOMETIMES. he can get off topic very easily though. he should give less work and mark easily
ZZZZZ... wha? whazat? the sun? florida? unghhh...zzzzzzz MOST BORING TEACHER EVER- he just keeps talking and talking going completely off topic and you want to sleep but you think that you shouldnt becuase he might see you and so you figure that you will take notes of the important parts of his lecture but the entire lecture is actually already summerized by him in one senctence on the board...You start looking forward to the assignment he gives at the end of class becuase it gives you something to do :(
He's alright. He tries to be funny doesnt work. His job is to teach me geography, not demand that i use his memonic method. I have my own ways of memorizing... and even worse, is that i must show my memonic on the test, and it counts as part of my mark.. is even more retarted.. if a certain method works for me.. why penalize me and make me learn memonics.. some tip Mr.Watt, stick to geography, stop preaching about how much better your methods are, and get some new material for your jokes
Best teacher EVER. Hard marker, but its all about knowing his style. He is the funniest man alive, I can't wait until he writes his memoirs!
i admit that mr watt is funny guy.. but the problem is.. that he goes off topic too easily. Also 80% of times, he just teaches samething over and over again wit
always makes a lot of funny jokes, and a good teacher. but gives the hardests tests in the world!!!!
Watt goes from funny quirky man with a cool accent to the opposite in a very short time. Stubborn. Good for conversation but good luck if he's marking you!
okay...hes halariouse in class untill u get ur first unit tests with the most random questions that u didnt even realy learn about :( (should be retired/gone.)
I liked this guys humour, but I did horrible in his class. :(
boring class. makes you fall asleep. not funny. takes a whole semester to mark assignments done in the first week. too many charts and overheads. glad im done.
At first, he seemed hard and scary, but in the end, he was a great teacher. Although, the ISP was hell! Overall, good teacher except for his jokes at times..
Knows geography REALLY WELL! but such a hard teacher. very funny and jokes around with people. his tests are IMPOSSIBLE!!!!! VERY VERY VERY good at badminton.
So good, I had a crush on him! And I'm a guy! No jokes, great teacher.
He is funny, he's been my teacher for 2 years. He is fair. I fell asleep every day in his civics class but he is just a great guy.
Mr. Watt is awesome. I admit, I was freaked out at first, but he turned out to be a great guy. He's so funny... but I wonder why I'm the only laughing =S
Really nice and REALLY funny. Tests were fair. If the material was good, the class was good. If it was dry, well...not much to be done.
he's very smart; but bad teaching style cuz he uses projector too much and talks at the same time as we hav to rite it all down; funny but VERY slow marker
In my opinion, he's a fair and funny teacher. Classes can be boring, but hey, he's a nice man (just dont get on his bad side)
Largely to sarcastic, needs to repect students more instead of insulting them.
Great guy, fun classes, good at teaching, expects a lot from you
