The DVDs and vids are pretty cool. Sometimes she doesn't make much sense though. She gives us like 20 pages of notes to do for homework, and then says "Oh, I don't want to overload you"...

She is completely clueless about history. She assigns things then forgets about them. Everything is busy work and she relies on DVDs, probably because she doesn't know much about teaching.

The reason for overhead is as a QUICK look, listen b4 takin notes that u should already have. The videos are excellent and you can learn a lot from them, its no surprise that you do since you probably never did your textbook homework. Do everything she tells you to and you'll be surprised. Mrs. Dugan is a great teacher because she make double the effort as a teacher to make up for her students. Give her the respect because standing up to 30 kids in a classroom and teaching US History isn't easy.

mrs. dugan at first i thought she was gonna be borin and stuff but i was able to talk at the end of almost every class cause she gave us time, and she tries really hard to get to know her students, she does do a lot of overheads but that's okay cause some r good, if u listen and do the worksheets that she gives u, u r set for the tests, those morons down below don't no what they r talkin about, i have yet to study for a unit test and have gotten an A on all of them, she may not be the best but she tries

She's an good teacher who yes may ocassionally leave the room for 10 min. The class is kinda easy, if you pay attention and do everything she tells u she'll understand. Sometimes the h-work & assignments come somewhat late for me to be able to do all of them but hey a teacher isn't supposed to be your best friend. The fact that using her 38514437 overheads they do help. Maybe if the others before had actually studied b4 the test they may of been able to pull a passing grade. I'm probably the biggest slacker

Tries to help with overheads and video clips shown, but she shows too many of them. Also, the overheads are shown and taken away too quickly, so nobody has a chance to learn from them. This class would be better if she explained things a little more thoroughly and worked at a little slower pace.

She's actually a great and efficient teacher, despite what others may think. If you actually pay attention, you'll learn a lot and do well. The class isn't slow and lethargic, which I definitely like. She treats everyone like mature teens, and doesn't hawk over us like little kids. Of course, not everyone may realize that. Also, this era is higly-visual, so videos and overheads are effective.

A great teacher. Her teaching style is different, but if you actually pay attention and listen through the '30 minute videos' and 'million overheads', you're very well-prepared and will do absolutely fine on all the tests. Half the responses on this page are ridiculous. She's one of the best teachers I've ever had. She also happens to be terrificly nice and I've never seen her be irresponsible. Teachers have different organizational styles. Is everyone's binder perfectly neat? She gets the point across. :-)
