The joke of the social studies dept. He is so lazy and never prepares for class. This class is a total waste of time.

I've been a foreign exchange student at ACHS couple years ago. I will never forget Mr. Dowden as without him my experience at American high school would not be that great . I got so lucky I could attend his class. He's an awesome teacher and a great person! He's a very talented man! I loved his class and still miss his history class so much! I've learned a lot from him! I loved his saying Oh, this is the first mistake I've ever made! : ) NUmber1 Teacher

Not the best history teacher at ACHS, but definitely a funny guy. If you are stuck with him as your teacher, try to get on his good side as soon as you can, he won't grade your homework and tests as hard if he likes you. And always laugh at his jokes, it makes him like you more. Oh and also tell him that he's a 'Gosh darn, All American, Dynamite teacher'.

The joke of the social studies department. He is a dinosaur teacher who is unable to teach. The worst teacher of my entire life. Showing a video is the only use of technology in the class. Being in this class has been a waste of time for everyone. No effort to improve and help students. A disgrace to the school.

He's a great guy :) He's funny too. His personality is very old fashioned and his instruction style is the same. Overall he's a decent guy to have :) Most will come across him since he instructs government, and most people find him easy to get along with. It's true his lessons do get dry at times, but it's not like you'll have to jump through hoops or pull a Christmas miracle to pass his class. The effort I gave: 60% on work, 75% tests/quizzes, 50% notes, and 20% interaction. Passed with a B :)

This guy has no clue as to what is going on. This class has been a complete waste of time. How about being more challenging instead of so lazy. A very poor teacher .

As long as you do your work, he will be nice. He just wants to see his students do well in his class. He's a pretty understanding and patient guy.

If you do your work, Mr. Dowden will be willing to do just about anything for you. He understands what it's like to teach seniors, and his class is really a lot of fun.

Easily my all-time favorite teacher. He's silly and willing to help you out if you are a good student, and he really tries to set you on the right path. Just do your work and everything will be fun.

A dinosaur teacher who is outdated and obsolete. How about using some new technology and quite using videos and worksheets instead of teaching ? The class is a waste of time.
