I had him in 9th grade, and he was super awesome. He's a tough grader, but if you read the lessons in the textbook and pay attention in class, you can get an easy "a". He's really nice, and explains everything thoroughly. He gives tests every other week, but he reviews a ton. The homework assignments are straight out of the textbook, and you only get homework about once a week. I really enjoyed his class.

I have been in the high school since September, and I have had Dugan as my teacher since November. So far I really think that people were stretching the truth when they talk about Mr. Dugan. He knows what he's talking about and he's a really great teacher overall. If you focus in class and actually study, his tests are incredibly easy. He gives you everything you need to know for the test and, provided that you write it down, you will pass. he's also very helpful to you if you're confused.

He is a good teacher and his tests are exactly what he teaches in class. He makes it really clear what you need to know for each test and yes, they are really hard but he tells you what to study. It is my only GHP class and the only one I have to study for but I actually learn by the end of the chapter. Unless he tells stories about something other than history class is pretty boring.

I loved his sense of humor, though I hated his tests. I wish we had more time for the essays, because I have to rush, and I dont have time to truly integrate everything I really wanted. Its the anaylsis part which is so time consuming (not difficult

He was a great teacher. He expects a lot, but in a good way. He expects the best of you out of you. He is very clear in explaining the criteria, and showed many examples, he also made a us think on our own about it. Many disliked him for the fact of making them think on their own or actually having to do work in class. I'm happy for my brother that he has him this year in school. You can learn so much from Mr. Dugan!

Mr. Dugan was a good guy except for the fact that his tests we impossible!! And his essays he wanted us to include irrelevant things to the topic into the essay! It was ridiculous! He was not very approachable for help when needed and had extremely high expectations for his freshman.

After four years of high school, I can honestly say Mr. Dugan was one of the worst teachers I've ever had the displeasure of knowing. His tests are pretty much impossible and he's very strict on the students. If you get his class, you are pretty much doomed.

After having other teachers, I realize how good of a teacher Mr. Dugan actually was. However, Mr. Dugan's expectations were unreasonable; he gave a TUN of really hard projects, and I would spend DAYS studying for his tests. I did feel like I really came out of his class learning something though, and I liked that he really i teach. He is a very nice guy an is willing to provide extra help to anyone who needs it. He is a good guy and a good teacher but ridiculously difficult.

Dugan is so awesome. he teaches, and you learn. he can be really hard, and follows the book, but by the end of the year you actually respect him for who he is and his teaching style. as long as you study and do the projects you'll be fine.

Mr. Dugan has to be one of the most awesomest teachers ever. Sure, he is strict, but in the end, because of him basically forcing you to do work, we all had gotten good grades. or at least average. :]
