May 09, 2014 7 days for our persuasive final? 7 days to find a topic, research on it, and give a speech about it in seven days? I have so many classes to worry about, and this is the class I had to work the most on. If you want stressful nights, join his class. Flag Rating

Aug 24, 2012 He hasvery liberal viewsthat he makes every one of his students very aware of, and i don't believe he has any actual useful knowledge, because he teaches debate, speech, and film crit and those arn't the most uhh mentally rigorous courses. Also, he gives you no clear understanding about what he wants on assignments or any clear instructions in respect to tests, overall a very poor teacher. You'll just have to bear through if you have him, trust me it's not easy. Flag Rating

May 08, 2008 Eh...cool guy and ok teacher, his assignments were just really...loose. He didn't give out a sheet at the beginning of a project telling us what to do, we just had to remember what we talked about. Ok teacher, but if you get him, switch to speech. Flag Rating

Apr 04, 2008 He graded pretty easily... and he was pretty understanding that it was a lot of kids first times going up in front of a class to speak. I guess I'd recommend taking Speech with him... but.. its a lot of work and sometimes he can put you on the spot. Flag Rating

Aug 18, 2006 I don't think Mr. Degnan is that bad of a teacher. I think the students don't understand him. He can be a little out there at times. Some times he makes the students uncomfortable by his questions. Flag Rating
