I agree with Jeff in the review above
Picks out students to be his favorites and screws over the rest of the students. Doesn't appreciate any humor thats not his own and his class is pretty much just a waste of a class period. You're better off just reading yourself and not coming to class.
It's sad. Reading all of these reviews makes me believe that at one point and time, Doug was a REALLY good teacher. Now, he's barely motivated. His lectures are so lack luster and contradicting that they're useless. You're better off just reading on your own for exams. He spends most days just reading from notes he found online (literally, accessible to everyone.) Avoid if at all possible. His bad moods are contagious.
Hes the best teacher i have ever had
Had him for AP US History last year and will have him for IB History of the Americas this year. Funniest teacher with the best personality. His class is hard and you have to do the readings and all wo
One of the best! So knowledgeable about history and life in general. We talk about the real world and current events. He makes class a joy!
Great teacher, but definitely not easy! I spent hours studying for this class and barely made it out of there with a C!!! In college, I majored in History and never had any problem thanks to his class
OB was one of my favorite teachers of all time. If you do all the readings and outline and participate in class, you will be sure to get a good grade. I loved his jokes as well, it made history fun!!
Mr.O'Brien was the BEST teacher ever!! i was his favorite!! lol do the work and its a really fun class! one of the only ones i didnt fall asleep in!
best teacher ever is correct. Mr O' Brien's class was one you actually didn't want to skip. If you do the readings everynight, you'll be fine. Do all the outlines as well.
Mr. O'Brien was the best teacher i ever had. He made History fun with accents, puns, and impressions "1communist is 1communist too many!" just do the readings!
Excellent history teacher. He made learning fun by making monotonous history exceptionally funny. Great teacher and person.
O'B is the best teacher I've ever had. He should be inducted in a hall of fame or something.
Mr. O'Brien is the best history teacher because he knows everything about everything and makes class cool to be in. Rock on, O'B!
Best teacher I've ever had!! He knows so much about history and always makes it interesting. Silly jokes, lots of puns and accents make it all worthwhile. :)
Makes silly jokes in class, but teaches history in a way that is easy to understand
