02/12/12 - Mr. Kagan is pretty cool! He really knows his stuff, and is nice. And, his discussions are actually really interesting compared to my other social studies classes. It's hard to keep track of all of the handouts and his tests cover a lot, but I feel like I'm actually learning something which is nice! Show More Show Less

09/11/11 - I am honestly convinced that Mr. Kagan wrote all of these reviews himself. I am in shock that so many people found him helpful, I certainly didn't. Maybe his teaching style just didn't work for me, but before his class I enjoyed history and now it's my least favorite word in the dictionary. Awful teacher. Show More Show Less

04/04/11 - Irv isn't very good at the logistical side of teaching--getting tests back in a timely fashion, letting us out on time, etc. He's also given to going on long tangents. But he is incredibly well-learned in his subjects (especially in Conlaw) and he asks questions that really push us to think harder about everything. Also, although it doesn't always seem like it, he's very on top of students' progress and his grading is never too far off-the-mark. Show More Show Less
