Put it this way... everyone played games on computers almost every day in his class and still somehow managed to get an A+ because of how well he teaches everything. Nearly everyone gets a 4 or a 5 on the AP exam. Other AP Gov classes had 10x the work and much worse results on the AP class.
I don't know how he does it. Either Ignatius stacks the class so that all the smart people are in his class or this man is a genius.
Also, he's absolutely hilarious and has the WEIRDEST laugh.

Great teacher to have. Very laid back class. Likes to joke around with students and have never once gotten pissed off no matter how annoying the students were. He didn't even care that we made forts out of the textbooks and fight each other with his air soft guns in his cabinet. Overall, a very intellectual and fantastic teacher!

Brilliant; down to earth; great communication skills; loves joking with his students when the time is right. For a very easy, laid back teacher, most of his students earn 5s on the AP test. ‘nuff sa

There are three things to watch out for when taking a class offered by Mr. Dan Corrigan. Blanch, his crowbar, and his toy rifle. He makes history fun for once.

This class [non-AP] was pretty difficult.
He is very 'old-school [in his late 20's]. That is, if you call him by his first name in any way, it's detention. As well, he's pretty strict about adhering to the school disciplinary guidelines.
During class,
