Mr. Badgley is an incredible teacher! He does assign homework and then give pop quizzes but I find them really useful and helpful in preparation for the final exams! Honestly, he will make you think and answer questions. In other words, he will help you grow and be smarter, not textbook-smart but world-smart! He is an awesome teacher and helps his students learn in unique, funny, and interesting ways!

I can't tell during debates if he's playing devil's advocate or is just trying to force his opinions on us. We've had several classes already with just him arguing for 40 minutes with the students. But, he's great at teaching and pretty fair with grading, so that's good.

Badgley more like bae-dgley he's amazing for freshman global (I'm not sure about AP because he's not teaching this year and he probably wouldn't be the best teacher if you want a 5 on your AP World test), but for freshman global oh man he was the best teacher to have for two terms. You get so many other perspectives from his teaching and it's not the standard read-textbook-and-memorize-powerpoint-notes class. I thought he was perfect for freshman global where it's still ok to not be a robot.

Mr. Badgley is the best freshman history teacher. He barely gives any tests yet you learn so much. You have true discussions and debates about history because he does not believe in pure memorization. He is also very funny yet very passionate about the world and his class. He also really wants you to do well

Here the madman fell silent and looked again at his listeners; and they, too, were silent and stared at him in astonishment. At last he threw his lantern on the ground, and it broke into pieces and went out. "I have come too early," he said then; "my time is not yet." Need I say expressly after all this that they will be free, VERY free spirits, these philosophers of the future--as certainly also they will not be merely free spirits, but something higher, greater, and fundamentally different.

Extremely bipolar. Tries too hard to be funny impressing dumb kids who giggle at practically anything he says when he's in a good mood (pretty much the "slaves" he keeps rambling about. Very impatient when he's upset. Grades aren't too harsh, but overall an ineffective and unpredictable teacher.

Simply put, Mr.badgley is a wonderful combination of wit and knowledge. Unlike most teachers, he places emphasis on LEARNING, instead of standardized tests. his wealth of not only experience, but also knowledge, has allowed me, and I know, many other students, cognizant of the world. A 4 year career at Stuyvesant without Mr. Badgley is a great loss.

People say that Badgley is pretty cool, especially compared to Waxman -_- But I think he's really strict and his cynicism is not encouraging. He gives random pop quizzes (don't worry, it's always open book) and if you get a question wrong, sometimes he gets super angry. How well he teaches often depends on whether he's in a good mood or not.
